A wide range of domestic objects will be on sale, from classic homeware and lighting to ornamental and quirky one-off pieces.  Delicate porcelain will be shown alongside earthy stoneware and cool white glazes will contrast with colourful painted vessels and pots. Prices range from £10 for smaller pieces to several hundred pounds for large-scale creations.
