That Continuous Thing: Artists and the Ceramics Studio, 1920-Today at Tate St Ives
Ceramics is an art form that combines painstaking skill with creative experimentation, and often gives a fascinating insight into contemporary concerns – and yet it's rare to see a dedicated ceramics exhibition in the UK. That's why Tate St Ives’ new show, That Continuous Thing, is particularly special, bringing together around 80 works from more than 50 pottery artists, looking at key moments of the last 100 years. Highlights include early 20th-century Japan-inspired ceramists such as Bernard Leach; a look at the Californian 'clay revolution' of the 1950s and 1960s; and the experimental 1970s work of London artists such as Gillian Lowndes and Richard Slee.
That Continuous Thing: Artists and the Ceramics Studio, 1920-today runs from 31 March to 3 September 2017 at Tate St Ives
