Breaking with Tradition
A ceramics exhibition in collaboration with The Burton at Bideford Art Gallery and Museum and British Ceramics Biennial. This show explores how the clay traditions of Stoke-on-Trent and Bideford differ historically and how new artists and makers embrace and challenge these narratives.
Through a new partnership, The Burton at Bideford Art Gallery and Museum and British Ceramics Biennial are celebrating the importance of heritage and place in the progression of contemporary ceramic practice.
Showcasing a range of established, resident and early career artists, Breaking with Tradition seeks to highlight how artists can connect us with the traditions of our places in entirely new ways. These rich traditions have been the inspiration for this exhibition, and the contemporary makers which are featured.
