Selected from the collection of Diane and Marc Grainer, this exhibition is the first comprehensive survey of contemporary British studio ceramics in the U.S. Comprised of functional and sculptural objects made between the 1980s and now, this show includes works by established "contemporary classic artists" as well as cutting edge artists. 

 

For general information on the artists in this exhibition, see the following sources and more in The Mint Museum Library:

  • Carlano, Annie. Contemporary British Studio Ceramics. London: Yale University Press, 2010.
    • The catalog is available now from The Mint Museum shops. 
  • Jones, Jeffrey. Studio Pottery in Britain 1900-2005. London: A&C Black, 2007.
