The annual celebration of ceramics returned to the Geffrye Museum in September, and brought together the work of around 50 selected ceramicists from across the UK, a mix of leading names and rising talents.
A diverse array of work was on sale, from classic homewares and lighting to purely ornamental and quirky one-off pieces, showcasing a wide range of techniques, styles, textures and colours. Delicate porcelain were shown alongside earthy stoneware and cool white glazes contrasted with colourful painted vessels and pots. Prices ranged from £10 for smaller pieces to several hundred pounds for large-scale creations.
Throughout the show, visitors were able to browse and buy, meet the makers and watch free demonstrations. There were ceramics-inspired creative workshops for children and families during the weekend (see below for event details).
