Long Room Gallery, Winchcombe - May 18th to July 13th 2019
This exhibition features work of a number of
potters who worked closely with Michael Cardew in the 1920s and
1930s and celebrates the work of Katharine Pleydell-Bouverie with
over a hundred of her pots. Substantial pieces and small glaze
test pots are included providing a unique opportunity to consider
the work of one the twentieth century's pioneer studio potters.
Although this is essentially a retrospective exhibition showing
pots sourced from private collections and the Winchcombe Archive
Collection there are pots to purchase including work by Michael
Cardew, some early Richard Batterham pieces and current work by
Andrew McGarva. An accompanying book, Cardew's Craft Circle,
includes an essay on Katharine Pleydell-Bouverie by Richard Batterham.
As usual with Long Room Gallery exhibitions,
the pots are shown in an Arts and Crafts setting amidst contemporary
fabrics, engravings, pictures and metalwork.
The exhibition is open daily for the first week
and then changes to Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays until it
closes on Saturday July 13th. For further information please visit
