This beautifully crafted show of 'museum-quality' artworks celebrates the excellence and innovative skills and techniques of contemporary British ceramicists and sculptors working to create sculptural ‘fine art’ forms, as opposed to tableware and domestic vessels.  Bernard Leach, along with the master Japanese potter Shoji Hamada, played a key role in putting St Ives on the global map as a major international pottery.  Whilst honouring and respecting that tradition, as a gallery we are also passionate about contemporary ceramics practice – especially ‘sculptural’ work – and so this new show highlights some of our current favourite practitioners in the field.
