Artists working in clay and ceramic have recently been the subject of close attention from the contemporary art world. Join us for a day of presentations and discussion by ceramicists, potters, specialist curators and contemporary artists working in ceramics to examine why. Speakers to be announced.

There will also be a curator-led tour of York’s CoCA collection. CoCA highlights and celebrates a collection of British Studio Ceramics which is the largest and amongst the most important in the UK and covers the entire British studio ceramics movement. Formed mainly of large gifts from significant private collectors, it retains the unique personality, passions and obsessions of its creators, providing an insight into the socio-economic development of the British studio ceramics movement. The collection is supported by extensive archives and historical collections of ceramics that date back to pre-history.
