The next edition of the Tupiniers will take place on September 8th and 9th, 2018

This year’s theme is “Au Fil de la Terre”

Editorial

Weaving the clay, turning the thread,
hemp and wicker fiber; textile or brass thread.
Whether it weaves, or knots,
the thread unites us, it creates a link.

For this 33rd edition of the Tupiniers du Vieux Lyon, we invite you to follow this thread, the one that connects two artists, two materials, two worlds to create unique pieces of art and explore new artistic fields.

Contemporary ceramists have tried the alchemy of the alliance of two materials, have exceeded their technical constraints, and stretched a thread towards other creators of material to offer you sensitive pieces where clay and fibers intertwine intimately.

During these two days, we invite you to meet 140 ceramists, discover their demanding and passionate work through the exhibition in the courtyard of Lazarists and throughout the alleys of the market.

This year again, the now famous saying applies more than ever: « You who dream or even better, seek to build a better world, take a first step and come to pick a sample in the alleys of our market ».

We look forward to seeing you again during these two days for this new edition of our event. It will get you discover new facets of contemporary ceramics with the secret hope that, once seduced, you will leave with an item, a piece of creation, a small part of this land that we all share …
