A Summer of Ceramics Exhibitions

Launch Slideshow

For too long the field of contemporary and studio ceramics has been overlooked or underrepresented within the British art scene, but all of this is set to change this summer, with a series of major public exhibitions in Britain and further afield.

With major shows dedicated to key makers of the past century – such as Lucie Rie, Magdalene Odundo, Hans Coper and Jennifer Lee – the spotlight is well and truly shining on the exciting and engaging field of British studio ceramics, with their works being recognized and celebrated for the unique and important role they played within the broader British art scene of the past century.

Here we look at some of the key exhibitions coming up, as well as works by the artists appearing in Sotheby’s forthcoming Made in Britain auction.
