Event - Alison Britton: Content and Form

Tue 26 January 2016–Sun 04 September 2016

She rose to prominence in the 1970s as part of a loosely affiliated group of women potters who had trained at the Royal College of Art, and whose work challenged established traditions. Britton’s ceramics took function and ornamentation as subjects to explore rather than qualities to necessarily directly exhibit, an approach to making that shifted the agenda for craft practice.
