Over the last 18 month curators at the museum have collaborated with the North East Regional Group of the Northern Potters Association to inspire new works of art. The potters have used all parts of the museum’s collection as their starting point; textiles, painting, calligraphy and sculpture as well as ceramics. The result is an exhibition of varied and exciting new works by more than a dozen ceramicists from across the North of England, all of which reflect the richness of the museum’s collections.
