SHAPING CERAMICS: FROM LUCIE RIE TO EDMUND DE WAAL
November 2016 - February 2017
Jewish Museum London
British studio pottery was revolutionised in the 1930s by Jewish ceramicists fleeing Nazi Europe. This exhibition showcased the work of these early ceramicists and traced their influence on successive generations of ceramic artists whose Jewish heritage has shaped their work in differing ways.
Shaping Ceramics was the first exhibition of its kind, exploring the major contribution made by ceramicists of Jewish heritage to the crafts scene in the UK. Bringing together ceramics from public and private collections across the country, the exhibition presented the work of 13 ceramicists, spanning over 80 years of ceramic art.
Named Critics’ Choice by the Financial Times.
