Innovations in Ceramic Art will feature work by nearly 50 artists. There will also be a programme of talks by leading ceramicists, including Wally Keeler, Kate Malone and Ben Brierley on the 10th and Tanya Gomez and Eddie Curtis on the 11th. Visitors will be able to meet the displaying artists and buy work directly from them.

Innovations in Ceramic Art will feature an eclectic mix of work, from functional wares from the studio pottery tradition to pieces that owe their origins more to fine art. All the work on show will be individually handmade to the highest quality. Visitors will be amazed by the diversity of work produced using such a simple material.
Online Ceramics is organising Innovations in Ceramic Art in association with the Craft Potters Association, the national body representing ceramic artists in the UK. Their aim is to advance and encourage the creation of fine works in studio ceramics, and to foster and extend the interests of the public in such objects and to promote their value in society.
Peter Ward owner of Online Ceramics mused “I’ve often wondered why people will happily pay several hundred pounds for a limited edition print but baulk at spending the same amount on an original piece individually made by a leading ceramicist” Peter Ward, Owner of Online Ceramics mused. “I’ve come to the conclusion it must be that “C” word – craft – that makes people think ceramics is not really art. And yet ancient ceramics are some of the most prized art works held by museums and galleries across the world.”
