Things of Beauty Growing tells the story of studio pottery in Britain, from the 1920s to the present. Works in this exhibition have been selected from distinguished private collections as well as from great museums across the UK and includes ceramics by Bernard Leach, Lucie Rie, Edmund de Waal, Alison Britton, Grayson Perry, Clare Twomey and Julian Stair. Featuring a number of the Fitzwilliam Museum’s own objects, this exhibition was curated in conjunction with Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, and comes to us following its run there.
Friends are invited to a special evening where Helen Ritchie, Applied Arts Research Assistant, will give a presentation on this seminal exhibition. Friends will then be invited to enjoy exclusive access to the exhibition before it opens to the public and runs from 20 March – 18 June 2018.
