Fresh at British Ceramics Biennial
The original site of the recently closed Spode Works ceramics factory in Stoke-on-Trent plays home to this year’s British Ceramics Biennial, including Fresh – an exhibition displaying the works of 40 graduates currently working in ceramics across the UK.
Displayed amongst the redundant furniture and equipment of the historic site, the works present the creative curiosity of those currently working with ceramics at secondary, Higher Education (HE) and post-graduate research levels across the UK in 2010 and 2011.
Co-curated by BCB Directors and NACHE, the National Association of Ceramics in Higher Education, Fresh is an apt platform in advocating for sustaining ceramics in higher education. This year sees a new bursary award for Fresh also, offering a residency opportunity for a new graduate at the European Ceramic Work Centre EKWC in the Netherlands.
Fresh at the Spode Works runs as part of the British Ceramics Biennial, held at various places in Stoke-on-Trent until November 13, 2011.
