Ceramics in the City 22nd September – 25th September 2012

Ceramics in the City is an excellent ceramics fair and grows from strength to strength each year. This year Clare Crouchman was kind enough to take some pictures for me to share on studiopottery.co.uk – Thank you Clare

“I love the Geffrye Museum as I remember visiting it as a child.  The 50s and 60s room takes me straight back to my childhood.  With its stylish extension, which opened in 1998, it creates the perfect setting for ‘Ceramics in the City’.

Now in its 11th year the firmly established show has grown in popularity and yet remains a warm and intimate show.  Over 50 ceramicists showed their work and there really was something for everyone.  The work is always of a really high standard and the variety of work is astounding.  Each exhibitor has the same size table and I really enjoy the contrast of colours and textures that makes up the show as a whole.”

 

“It is a friendly show for the visitors as well as the ceramicists and the cosy, relaxed environment allows for everyone to meet the makers and browse or buy the ceramics and have a look at the museum.

If you have never been before it is definitely worth a visit so come along next year!” (I can certainly endorse that – put a note in your diary to check late next september… Stephen Dee, Editor)
