Oxford Ceramics Fair – Partnership with the Ashmolean Museum

The Oxford Ceramics Fair is presented by the Craft Potters Association (CPA), now in partnership with the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology. A new initiative by the Ashmolean will see the Museum host a day of ceramic events on 20 October, one week before the Fair.

Taking place a week ahead of the Fair, the Ashmolean’s Overture to The Oxford Ceramics Fair will include Tanya Harrod, author of The Crafts in Britain in the 20th Century, giving her lecture Michael Cardew – Modern Pots, Colonialism and the Counterculture.
Phil Rogers, whose work features in the Ashmolean’s collection, will give a throwing demonstration followed by a guided tour of the ceramics collection with a glass of wine. Throughout the afternoon, there will be a clay workshop for families with Victoria Houghton.

The Ashmolean is keen to raise awareness of ceramics and several ClayLive days, in association with the Oxford Ceramics Gallery and the Craft Potters Association (CPA), have already taken place. These featured demonstrations and talks by Mo Jupp, Geoffrey Swindell and Sutton Taylor. Still to come in 2013 is Walter Keeler.
The Ashmolean’s ceramics programme will continue next year, with a series of ceramics masterclass days in association with the CPA.
