◄ Overview

Tom Sachs

Valdivi

In 2014, Salon 94 staged a bracingly unusual sort of pottery show, entitled Satan Ceramics. It featured four artists, only one of whom (JJ Peet) was a trained ceramist. Peet helped the others get a grip with the medium – and among them was Tom Sachs, the inveterate tinker, absurdist product designer, and general mayhem-maker. For the show, Sachs produced (among other things) tea bowls of broadly Japanese shape, as one might see used in the tea ceremony, but with one key difference: the red NASA logo was emblazoned on the side. This produces a collision of worlds – tradition and technology, east and west, the Japanese cultivation of accident and the space program’s attempt to eliminate variation of any kind. Sachs has made bowls in the series ever since, sometimes incorporating gold seams (kintsugi) by which breakages are highlighted through the act of repair.
