'Things of Beauty Growing': British Studio Pottery, previously on view at the Yale Center for British Art is now open at The Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge until 17 June 2018.
This exhibition traces the changing nature of British studio pottery through the evolution of specific types of vessel: moon jar, vase, bowl, charger, set, pot, and monument. Featuring works from museums and private collections across the UK and America, the display presents studio pottery as a global story, with pots and potters traveling between Britain, continental Europe, Asia, Africa, and beyond.
The exhibition is the largest of its kind in recent times, with over 100 historic and contemporary ceramics by potters including Bernard Leach, Lucie Rie, Hans Coper, Edmund de Waal, Alison Britton, Grayson Perry and Julian Stair.
