Whether its transfers, sculptures or simply ceramics, each of the exhibits brought a little bit of the old Spode factory back to life. It’s quite an emotional journey seeing the factory rooms – sometimes just as people left it when they were told the factory was closing. But through the interpretations of some of the most amazing ceramic artists, the British Ceramics Biennial has given us the opportunity to relive a piece of the past, absorb ourselves in the present state of the ceramics industry and inspire us to create our own ceramic futures. Check out the exhibitions in person at Stoke On Trent – Old Spode Factory until Nov 10 or http://www.britishceramicsbiennial.com/
and you can also check out what other ceramic artists are up to at Mud Colony http://mudcolony.blogspot.com.au/
Happy Clay days
Old factories are so much fun to explore but touring an old ceramics factory would be heaven.
Yes Future Relics It was a wonderful sense of connection with the past – Amazing experience thanks to the British Cermaics Biennial
