Encountering Beauty: Ceramic

Today we’ll be hearing about the ancient and enduring craft of ceramics – from the elemental forming and firing of clay that has been advanced by so many civilisations to the ‘white gold’ of porcelain, and the potters and patrons who have dedicated themselves to its mysteries. 

I’m delighted to be joined by two London-based specialists in the field: Adrian Sassoon, expert in 18th-century French porcelain and contemporary works of art in ceramic, and by Errol Manners of E. and H. Manners Ceramics and Works of Art, which offers a wide range of pottery and porcelain from European pieces to Middle Eastern, Far-Eastern and Mexican colonial period wares.
