Clay 2013 (Adam Pottery)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Pottery is a craft in which material can override the potter’s control. The descriptions of the process presented as part of ‘Clay 013’ make us think of science before we think of art, but of course the show is also interesting for the beautiful objects themselves, which will appeal to the ardent collector of ceramics as well as those simply looking to add some decoration to their home. There is remarkable variety in the style of the ceramics here, from the luscious colours of a glossy glaze to the delicate and moderate appearance of matte coloured pots. Unfinished works are also on show and form a complementary preview of the finished pieces on sale. Overall the show proves ceramics are not mere decoration but a sculptural art form.

Adam Pottery, until 27 Aug (not Sundays), 11.00am-6.00pm.
