Temporary Exhibition - The Art of The Potter at Somerset Rural Life Museum

Description

Decorative and functional ceramics have been produced in Somerset for hundreds of years. In England, during the 17th and 18th centuries, some of the greatest examples of slipware ceramics were produced. This popular decorative technique was widely used, prior to the introduction of enamel. Hand thrown earthenware pottery was decorated with coloured slip (liquid clay) and then glazed. Slipware ceramics may seem rustic, but their creation requires great skill. It is highly collectable.‘The Art of the Potter’ explores how slipware developed in Somerset from the late 1600s onward.
