Essex Studio Potters at Chelmsford Museum – permanent exhibition starts mid January 2013

The exhibition is curated by Dr Mark Curteis and his team at the museum. Potters who are showing in the exhibition so far include: Shaun Hall  (Large Nuclear Jug), Richard Baxter (large footed bowl), Lola Swain (big beautiful coiled and burnished pot), Suzanne Rampton (possibly a functional work), Madelaine Murphy (a trio of totemic birdhouses in Raku -dedicated to sweets), and Alan Foxley (sculptural garden piece).

I have a picture from Shaun of his jug and hope to be able to add more images later. The exhibition is listed under ‘events‘ as well

The Museum boasts a beautiful display of ceramics, fine Georgian glass, English pottery and contemporary pots from local artists.

Ceramics on display include 17th-18th century tin glaze pottery (“English delft”) and the unusual Victorian “Essex Art Pottery” made by Edward Bingham and his family at Castle Hedingham in North Essex. A contemporary decorative and narrative pot by the Chelmsford-born Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry is “The Chelmsford Sissies”. He imagined a Civil War incident and created a modern cross-dressing illustration on the pot.

This contrasts with the modern austerity of work by Joanna Constantinidis (1927-2000), a potter of international reputation who lived at Little Baddow and taught in Chelmsford from 1951 to 1989. Items on display include a large group of pieces she kept, acquired from her estate after her death.
