Encountering Beauty: Precious Stones

In this episode we’ll be hearing about precious stones – about how artists and patrons have lusted for their lustre across civilisations, and of how their brilliance has thrilled beholders over centuries. We’ll learn how the meanings of different stones have shifted over time and as they’ve crossed borders, and about how changing techniques of cutting or working with them have added new facets to their appeal.   Thomas Marks, editor of Apollo magazine, is delighted to be joined by Sandra Crona

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 Cera

We’ll be discussing how far an understanding of pigment has been fundamental to the painting of the past, including how certain colours have been valued or venerated – and we’ll explore what contemporary painters kno

Encountering Beauty: Wood

Today we’ll be talking about wood – a material that is in a sense very ordinary but which has been made extraordinary by artists from many different cultures, and for thousands of years. It has been carved and turned, joined and inlaid, polished and painted – and in many cases, its endurance against the odds has lent it a fragile preciousness that only adds to the sense of wonder that it inspires. Featuring Patrick Mestdagh, whose gallery in Brussels presents objects from outside Europe – fro
