Ceramics Craft Forum: In Conversation


“We want to claim back the word ‘craft’!! We are staging a run of ‘in conversations’ with Art Historian Dr. Jonathan Clarkson in our ceramics archive calling upon the history of ceramics research at Cardiff to identify intersections between ceramics and art with our MA’s hopefully running a little like this . . .”

Dr. Natasha Mayo discussing ‘Sloppy Craft’
Dr. Jon Pigott discussing ‘Crafting Technology’
Theo Humpheries discussing ‘Crafting Humour’
Claire Curneen discussing ‘Crafting Narratives’
Dr. Martyn Woodward ‘The Anthropology of Craft

Delighted that these events will be held  in our Special Collections room using material from the Ceramics Collections and Archives.
