Pots and Personalities: three key contributors to the study of ceramics in the late 20th century

The second half of the twentieth century saw huge advances in research into and knowledge of ceramics.  Collectors experienced the pleasure of the search, ownership, study and attribution.  We will hear about three people who played an essential part in this development – Simon Spero will speak about Bernard Watney, Colin Wyman about Norman Stretton and Maurice Hillis about Geoffrey Godden.  The day will cover a wide range of English ceramics and many decorative techniques from printing to under-glaze blue painting.

More information and a booking form will arrive with the newsletter or a few weeks before each event.
