Our spring exhibition ‘Things of Beauty Growing’ is now open. Here we see artist Halima Cassell (b.1975) installing her own artwork entitled ‘Virtues of Unity’. This is an ever growing installation, each piece carved from clay sourced from countries across the globe, each presenting a different colour and texture. It is a reflection of the human race as one species, despite our differences in cultural background or skin colour. Things of Beauty Growing explores the development of British Studio pottery, focusing on different types of vessel and explores the origins and inspiration of the pieces on display. Exhibition open until 17th June 2018. #britishstudiopottery #britishceramics #britishartist #pottery #ceramics #newexhibition #behindthescenes @halimacassell
