Objects of Desire Exhibition 4th to 27th May 2019
Kellie Miller says “I invite you to a special exhibition, featuring the work of six UK and international ceramicists who explore the limits and possibilities of working with porcelain, a medium that I deem to be the jewel material of clay. I hope this show will give you a deeper understand of the ceramicists’ work and the unique qualities of porcelain, as it is strong yet delicate and translucent, fine, and white enough for colours to fully shine.”

When: 4-27 May 2019; Open 11am to 6pm Daily
