The Anglian Potters summer exhibition returns to Cambridge, 10-25 August to showcase handmade ceramics from more than 60 talented local potters.This popular summer exhibition will be held at All Saints’ Church, Jesus Lane. The church is considered a masterpiece of Victorian architecture and Arts and Crafts design and provides a dramatic setting for the huge range of work on display. Visitors may be able to spot the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement in some of the ceramics on show and, with everything from traditional domestic ware to avant-garde and cutting-edge ceramic art, there will be something for every taste and budget.
Exhibitor and exhibition organiser Ian Vance said: “With inspiration drawn from so many sources the variety of work on show is hugely diverse. With everything from hand-thrown studio pottery to wall-mounted pieces, jewellery and sculpture the exhibition is a riot of colour, texture and shape.”
Entry to the exhibition is free and visitors are invited to come and browse, meet some of the potters and to soak up the atmosphere of this magnificent setting whilst exploring the work on display and, as this is a selling event, any purchases can be removed on the day.
The exhibition is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm and on Sunday 10am to 5pm. All Saints’ Church is opposite Jesus College on Jesus Lane, just a short walk from Sidney Street. Look out for the Anglian Potters banners.
