Tommaso Corvi-Mora is pleased to present an exhibition of work by five renowned British Studio Potters: Simon Carroll, Walter Keleer, Janet Leach, Katharine Pleydell-Bouverie and Julian Stair.

Over recent years many contemporary artists have shown a renewed interest in clay as a medium. This has sparked a debate in the ceramics world, touching upon several issues: the boundary between art and craft, the relationship between skill and creativity and the relevance of specific traditions in a certain creative realm.

The aim of this exhibition is to turn the tables on this lively debate by presenting a group of works by studio potters within the context of a contemporary art gallery.

The makers selected for the exhibition give shape to a very partial history of studio pottery, from Katharine Pleydell-Bouverie (1895-1984), one of the first students of Bernard Leach, the founder of the studio pottery movement; to Janet Leach (1918-1997), a potter steeped in the Japanese tradition; Simon Carroll (1964-2009), an extremely original and talented artist who died prematurely at the age of 45 and Walter Keeler and Julian Stair, both still practicing today.

The exhibition aims to showcase a small section of a very lively and exciting area of creative production that is often overlooked within the context of fine art, at a time when the teaching of ceramics is being curtailed in most art colleges (Goldsmiths MA Ceramics closed in 1993; Manchester Metropolitan University contemporary applied arts BA closed in 2007; Glasgow School of Art Ceramics Department closed in 2008; Westminster University Ceramics Department at Harrow closed 2010; Edinburgh College of Art Ceramic Department closed 2008; Camberwell College of Arts BA Ceramics Course closing in 2012 and so on).

The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 6pm.
