The Wall of Women

Free admission, book here
The ‘Wall of Women’, a new display opened on International Women’s Day (8 March) in the Centre of Ceramic Art, it celebrates and reveals the innovation and creativity of women working with clay from the early 20th century to the present day.
Containing around 250 works, the 17-metre-long showcase includes ceramics by Alison Britton, Carol McNicoll, and Kerry Jameson – many of which have not been on display before.
We’re excited to also exhibit newly acquired works by Catherine Yarrow, a Surrealist potter who was associated with Leonora Carrington and Marcel Duchamp, as well as a range of works by the German Bauhaus trained potter and designer, Grete Marks. The display offers the opportunity to discover more about these and other undervalued women ceramicists.
