Ceramics – Masters and Makers

12 January – 9 February 2017

Ceramics, one of the most enduring of the decorative arts, has been important in European culture for both utilitarian and artistic purposes. This programme looks at materials and techniques and explores some of the key aspects of production in the history of European culture. We will look at the stunning refined tin glazed wares produced in Italy during the C16th, the pioneering development of factories at Meissen, Sevres and Wedgwood and the explosion of production and creativity that occurred in C19th Britain.
