Craft into Industry
British Ceramics Biennial, Stoke-on-Trent, UK 2013
As Contemporary Applied Arts moved into a new chapter in its history it was keen to develop new opportunities for its membership outside of the gallery in London. This exhibition offered CAA members the chance not only to have their work viewed at the 2013 Biennial but also at the CAA London Gallery where the exhibition was part of the 2014 Exhibition programme. The exhibition examined the possible relationship between British Studio practice and the ceramics industry. CAA worked with homeware design consultant Sue Pryke and curator Brian Kennedy on the curation of this exhibition. Sue and Brian were keen to not only look at ceramicists for this exhibition but to explore and present makers from a wide range of disciplines as they strongly feel that there are many partnership possibilities between studio practitioners and British industry.
