AT THE FITZWILLIAM MUSEUM - SuMMER 2018
THINGS OF BEAUTY GROWING: British Studio Pottery with LARS THARP
Wednesday 13 June 2.00-4.30pm
A very special afternoon with the ceramics expert, lecturer and well known broadcaster Lars Tharp. Lars will be giving us a private tour of the Fitzwilliam's exhibition "Things of Beauty Growing: British Studio Pottery" which includes historic and contemporary work by potters such as Bernard Leach, Lucie Rie, Hans Coper, Edmund de Waal and Grayson Perry. The exhibition tells the story of studio pottery in Britain from the early 20th century to the present through the evolution of specific types of vessel and will be the largest exhibition of its kind in recent years.
Lars will be familiar to many of us from his appearances on the Antiques Roadshow and other television programmes. Recently he has been on the steering committee of York Museum’s Centre of Ceramic Art which focuses mainly on studio pottery and he is Honorary President of the International Ceramics Fair in Aberystwyth. He is a ceramics enthusiast and his tour promises to be enlightening, engaging and entertaining - definitely an afternoon not to be missed.
Cost: £40 including refreshments
