This exhibition shines a light on contemporary adaptations and innovations in traditional ceramics processes. Eight international contemporary ceramic artists, each working in eight different techniques, present work that brings a fresh perspective and contemporary aesthetic to the oldest vessel-making material known to humanity; clay.
