Join the curators of the exhibition “Things of Beauty Growing”: British Studio Pottery for an evening of reflection on the field of British ceramics. Following an introduction by Martina Droth, a panel discussion chaired by Glenn Adamson will consider the deep history, present position, and possible new directions of studio pottery in Britain. Participating in the panel will be Simon Olding; Magdalene Odundo, a potter who synthesizes myriad sources into serenely resolved, sculptural forms; and Clare Twomey, the artist whose monumental eighty-vase installation, Made in China, populates the Entrance Court and other spaces in the Yale Center for British Art this fall.
