Opening Sunday April 9, 2017 at 5pm
Floor talk/meet the artists 3pm Sunday 23 April
The North Shore’s impressive ceramic tradition is highlighted in a fascinating survey exhibition that explores the local studio pottery movement from its beginnings in the early 1950s, through the enormously productive 1970s – during which potters could barely keep up with the popular demand for domestic ware – to the present day as ceramics enjoys a resurgence.
Original pieces by Barry Brickell and Ian Firth, founding members of the North Shore Potters Society, the first of its kind when it was formed in 1951, feature alongside works by other prominent potters through the periods such as Graeme Storm, Merilyn Wiseman, Peter Collis, Peter Shearer and Campbell Hegan.
Those with a keen interest in ceramics can meet a number of the potters and hear about how the craft has developed at a floor talk on Sunday 23 April.
