Shaping Ceramics: From Lucie Rie to Edmund de Waal – 10 Nov 2016 to 26 Feb 2017


Discover the story of how Jewish ceramicists transformed British studio pottery and influenced successive generations of ceramic artists. In the mid 20th century Jewish émigré ceramicists revolutionised British studio pottery, importing modernist ideas from central Europe and creating work that was sleek, sophisticated and cosmopolitan. Lucie Rie, Hans Coper, Ruth Duckworth and Grete Marks produced simple and imaginative designs that were avant-garde for their time.

 Shaping Ceramics explores the work of these pioneering ceramicists and traces their influence on subsequent generations of ceramic artists whose Jewish heritage has shaped their work. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover the work of 13 ceramicists in an exhibition spanning over 80 years of ceramic art.
The exhibition is accompanied by a series of live pottery demonstrations, talks, and events including ‘Potters in Residence’ and ‘Pop-up Potters’

Featured Artists:
Janet Haig, Grete Marks, Lucie Rie, Antonia Salmon, Ray Silverman, Jenny Stolzenberg, Dan Arbeid, David Breuer-Weil, David Cohen, Hans Coper, Edmund de Waal, Ruth Duckworth, David Jones.
