HÀ NỘI — Ceramic artworks by lecturers from the University of Arts and Design are being displayed at an exhibition held at the university.
Entitled Sành (Terracotta), the display introduces to the public 80 works by five artists, all of whom have participated in many prestigious exhibitions at home and abroad and won many awards.
They are Phan Thanh Sơn, a lecturer from the Faculty of Traditional Fine Art, who has held four solo exhibitions called Chơi Đất (Playing with Earth), Ngô Bá Hoàng from the Faculty of Interior and Exterior Decoration, Vũ Hữu Nhung from the Faculty of Interior and Exterior Decoration who is the founder of Phù Lãng ceramic brand and Lê Văn Khuy from the Faculty of Fine Arts.
The artists have different majors, styles and personalities, but they all share the same passion for ceramics. Together they have been connected to spread the beauty of the material at the University of Industrial Fine Arts - the only cradle of the country producing ceramic artists.

The exhibited pieces mainly depict the beauty of humans, families, animals or objects, and are presented in different styles and perspectives, evoking different artistic experiences for visitors.
“In the finiteness of five different shades of ceramics, our ultimate goal is to let each piece tell its own story or the narrative of the soloists in the boundless immensity of art,” Sơn said, hoping that Sành will encourage further ceramic exhibitions.
The Sành exhibition will run till November 16 at the university on 360 Đê La Thành Street, Hà Nội. Entrance is free. VNS
