Project Description

January 14 – March 20, 2022

Breaking with Tradition: A tale of two towns

In a new partnership, The Burton at Bideford and the British Ceramics Biennial celebrate the importance of heritage and place in the progression of contemporary ceramics.

Showcasing a range of established, resident and early career artists, this exhibition will explore how the clay traditions of Stoke-on-Trent and Bideford differ historically, and how artists and makers embrace and challenge those narratives.
