This in conversation was held on Tuesday 18th October from 7-8pm. We were very fortunate to have Alun Graves, Senior Curator of Ceramics at the V&A Museum. the Curator of Alison Britton: Content and Form at the V&A and has written essays on Edmund de Waal and Jennifer Lee. He was in conversation with the ceramic artists Sarah Purvey, Jo Taylor and Claire Loder, whose work features in ‘From Where I’m Standing: Contemporary Ceramics and the Swindon Collection’. They will discussed their techniques, influences and the growing profile of contemporary ceramics, and although she escaped being photographed in the group photo above, Curator Sophie Cummings was also engaged in the conversations, and can be seen here on the left introducing everyone:
There was a great audience, including some of the other ceramicists in the show
