The 2023 British Ceramics Biennial has come to a close.
The Biennial took place over six weeks from 23 September to 5 November 2023 across four venues in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme. From spotlighting the UK’s leading ceramicists to introducing work by international artists and fresh new talent, the Biennial celebrated the creative potential of clay for storytelling, playfulness, risk-taking and activism to critical acclaim.
The next Biennial will take place in Autumn 2025.
British Ceramics Biennial is proud to be an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation and is supported by the City of Stoke-on-Trent Council and Staffordshire University.
