Meet the makers, browse and buy at the Geffrye Museum’s vibrant annual celebration of ceramics which showcases the work of over 50 leading ceramic artists from across the UK.

An eclectic selection of ceramic work to suit all budgets will be on sale direct from the makers, from practical table-ware to ornamental objects and striking one-off collector pieces. Earthy stoneware will be displayed alongside delicate porcelain and vivid painterly pots will contrast with elegant muted tones in an extravaganza of texture, colour and style. 

Trends to watch this year include pops of colour and splashes of gold, Japanese and Chinese influences and work inspired by natural organic forms and storytelling.

The show will feature a mix of well-established makers such as Karen Bunting, Jane Cox, Ben Davies, Akiko Hirai, Ruth King and Sue Paraskeva together with rising talents including Judit Esztergomi, Miya Kurihara, Kirsty Macrae, Yuta Segawa, Jessica Thorn, Maria Wojdat and Mizuyo Yamashita.
