Elke Sada, Mindy Solomon Gallery artist residing in Leipzig, Germany, has been awarded as this year’s laureate of the Prix David Miller.

“The award honors a professional European ceramicist whose work expresses a preference for the vessel, whether it be functional or not, and should show a sensitivity for either form or decoration or both, with a ‘clayful’ spirit; a capacity to be innovative, experimental and vibrant. The Prix David Miller aims to promote a discipline considered to have found its rightful place alongside other contemporary plastic arts and design. The rapid changes in contemporary society, especially in this era of digitalization and obsolescence, point to a need to maintain the fine thread linking us to the wholesome world of ordinary people, to the transmitting of ancient skills which have remained intact while continuing to be nurtured by the present with its flowering of fresh shapes and approaches.”

The prize has been awarded five times now, and in 2015 all laureates will present a group exhibition with a catalog in Bandol, South of France. Congratulations, Elke!
