Mr Sudjud Dartanto Lecturer, Craft Art Department at the esteemed Indonesia Institute of the Arts, Yogyakarta, is Guest Curator for Arafura Craft Exchange Ceramics 2008, the second in a series of triennial exhibitions. In 2007 Mr Sudjud Dartanto undertook studio visits with a select number of Australian and Indonesian ceramicists, including local artist Harvey Ottley, with a view for inclusion in the exhibition. The result is an exhibition of stunning contemporary ceramic practice featuring wild colours, emotive forms, elaborate concepts and sometimes comical themes.
