Jesse Wine (born Chester, 1983) works mainly with ceramics and uses traditional techniques to explore process and chance. Wine never records his methods; he mixes glazes and oxides together and fires at different temperatures, seeing colours melt and blend and structures collapse.

Jason Rhoades, Four Roads is the first major gallery exhibition of the work of this exceptional artist who died in 2006 at the age of 41. Rhoades lived and worked in Los Angeles. The exhibition occupies BALTIC’s two largest floors, with four installations to be navigated by four interpretive paths or roads.
