Timeless Secrets – Ceramic Artists in Their Own Words

Wednesday, 25 April | 11.00 am - Saturday, 28 July | 4.30 pm

| Free

“Pottery has its own language and inherent laws, and words have theirs, and neither can be bound by the other. Nevertheless a certain amount of translation and interpretation is possible.” Bernard Leach

Timeless Secrets is an exhibition celebrating the artistic skills of potters and artists who work with clay. But it is more than that. Accompanying these art-works are comments made by the artists themselves. Over the years some ceramicists have spoken extensively about their work, while others have remained silent, letting their work speak for itself.

This exhibition is guest curated by the ceramics collector and writer Mike Yates, and features work by Walter Keeler, Mo Jupp, Bernard Leach, Ray Finch, Jennifer Lee and Lucie Rie.

Sponsored by Joel and Vanetta Joffe.
