Led by journalist and curator Corinne Julius, Vanguard Court ceramicists host a talk and discussion covering topics including their varied practices and the benefits of working independently but in close proximity. Followed by an opportunity to visit their studios.

An evening event at Vanguard Court, beginning with a drinks reception followed by a talk led by the respected journalist and curator Corinne Julius.

The makers on Vanguard Court have been working in close proximity for many years and, using clay as their primary material, their work ranges from functional to sculptural, figurative to abstract. The techniques they employ are as diverse as the finished pieces. This international group of makers’ work is represented in museum collections around the world, and Vanguard Court is a significant urban hub for British ceramics.

In discussion with the makers, Corinne examines the diversity of practice and the benefits that come from working independently within a shared environment. Following the talk, there is an opportunity to visit the makers in their studios to view, discuss and, where possible, handle their work.

Makers taking part include Carina Ciscato, Catrin Howell, Chris Keenan, Christopher Riggio, Grant Aston, Henry Pim, Kaori Tatebayashi, Robert Cooper and Sun Kim.

Limited disabled access.
