Contrasts: Vessels and Containers

In August this year a comprehensive new book on the history of Southern African ceramics, Scorched Earth, by Wendy Gers,was launched at the Gallery. The book is available at the Tatham Shop.

To coincide with the launch, the Gallery changed its ceramic display by adding work from South African commercial potteries featured in the book. Many of these ceramic pieces were donated to the Gallery’s permanent collection by Peter Millin.
