Wakefield librarian William Alfred Ismay (1910 - 2001) amassed a collection of more than 3,500 pots which is now cared for by York Art Gallery.

This exhibition, at the award winning Hepworth gallery in Ismay's home town, will feature a selection from his collection by eminent studio ceramicists including Hans Coper and Lucie Rie.
