Shaping Ceramics: From Lucie Rie to Edmund de Waal

10 November 2016 - 26 February 2017

Critics' Choice "a delightful small exhibition"
Financial Times
 
Discover the story of how Jewish ceramicists transformed British studio pottery and influenced successive generations of ceramic artists.

In the mid 20th century Jewish émigré ceramicists revolutionised British studio pottery, importing modernist ideas from central Europe and creating work that was sleek, sophisticated and cosmopolitan. Lucie Rie, Hans Coper, Ruth Duckworth and Grete Marks produced simple and imaginative designs that were avant-garde for their time.

Shaping Ceramics explores the work of these pioneering ceramicists and traces their influence on subsequent generations of ceramic artists whose Jewish heritage has shaped their work. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to discover the work of 13 ceramicists in an exhibition spanning over 80 years of ceramic art.
