BBC 4 – Handmade In Britain – Ceramics: A Fragile History. 10 October 2011 at 9.00pm

Ceramics: A Fragile History

There are three episodes to this one hour BBC4 programme: on Mondays 10, 17 and 24 October 2011.

Episode 1 is looking at domestic pottery from the Tudor period onwards. It traces the evolution of different techniques and styles involved in the art of pottery and examines in intimate detail what British pots can tell us about how generations before us lived and how they saw themselves.

Episode 2. Focuses on Stoke on Trent including those responsible for the dominance of British Ceramics from Josiah Wedgwood and Josiah Spode to Clarice Cliff and Susie Cooper.

Episode 3. From the mass produced pots of the industrial revolution to the Arts and Crafts Movement to the rebirth of handmade pots by Bernard Leach to the imaginative and exciting ceramics of the current period.

See more detail on the BBC site:

If you are interested in the story of British Ceramics this is a series not to be missed. 10/10/11 – the first episode was excellent, the next two promise to be just as good! Ed.
