Of BRUSH and CLAY: Painter Potters of the mid 20th Century
Painter Potters of the mid 20th Century looks at the work of Sam Haile, William Newland, Margaret Hine, Nicholas Vergette, potters who took British studio ceramics on a new course, rejecting the sombre Orientalism of Bernard Leach and his followers and using their pots as an artist’s canvas.
Of Brush and Clay offers a rare opportunity to look at this influential but comparatively neglected area of ceramics and to admire the work of these highly individual artists. Around thirty pieces will be in the exhibition, some on loan from private collections have not been shown in public for many years.
Bristol Guild, Park St, Bristol.
