This exhibition – which sits alongside the Crafted in Clay pottery trail – aims to give a partial and subjective overview of contemporary ceramics in Britain, with potters and artists selected by Tommaso Corvi-Mora.
Tommaso is the owner of Corvi-Mora gallery in London, which has championed the work of ceramic artists for many years. He is also an artist and his work features in the Crafted in Clay trail.
The work in this exhibition spans forty years, from the mid-1980s until today and also features two works from the 1870s by the Martin Brothers, early forerunners of studio potters.
The exhibition revolves around the work of artists who either focus on the vessel as a starting point of their investigation or who adopt the model of the studio potter – an artist following the whole process of making ceramics from beginning to end, working alone in the studio – to structure their own practice. In most cases both elements are present.
Price: Adults: £12, Kids Go Free (with each paid adult)
