Meet the makers, browse and buy at the Geffrye Museum’s vibrant annual celebration of ceramics which showcases the work of over 50 leading ceramic artists from across the UK.

An eclectic selection of ceramic work to suit all budgets was for  sale direct from the makers, from practical table-ware to ornamental objects and striking one-off collector pieces.  Earthy stoneware will be displayed alongside delicate porcelain and vivid painterly pots will contrast with elegant muted tones in an extravaganza of texture, colour and style.
