Explore a wide range of studio ceramics, ranging from beautifully made home ware to large sculptural pieces. Meet some of the most talented makers working today, whose styles range from traditional to cutting-edge contemporary practice. This is an event not to miss, for collectors, enthusiasts or simply anyone wanting to buy a unique piece.

Names to watch out for include:

Antonia Salmon, whose ceramic sculptures capture a sense of an inner stillness and structure; qualities that are inherent in the natural world from which she draws inspiration. An established artist her work is held in many important worldwide collections.

Jin Eui Kim who explores the perception of three-dimensional ceramic through the applications of tonal bands on their surfaces

Ashraf Hanna creates both individual and related groups of vessels, within which each object informs the next, with the sculptural aspect much in evidence.

Peter Beard a maker of vessels and sculptural pieces. Richly glazed, his forms can have an almost sentinel and totemic presence, the shapes elemental, the glazing iridescent and luminous.

Ruth King, one of Britain’s pre-eminent salt glaze potters. Her vessels bear stunning salt glazed tones ranging from rich rusts to luminous greens and silvery greys showing how sculptural and elemental modern ceramics can be.

For those wanting to learn more there is also an exciting programme of talks, discussions, and demonstrations being planned.
