LEADING potters will be showcasing a selection of their hand-crafted ceramics this autumn.

The York Ceramics Fair, which takes place in the city’s Museum Gardens, will feature everything from vibrant to serene, minimal to magical and sculptural to utilitarian on November 23 and 24, from 10am to 5pm.

Hundreds of pots from all shapes and sizes will be on sale from 40 leading pottery makers, including Ruth King, RAMP Ceramics and Dylan Bowen.

Jenny Southam explores her love of gardening, alongside her interest in both Staffordshire mantelpiece figures and Etruscan tomb sculptures.

Dylan Bowen captures the energy of how the ceramics are made.

His work is sought after by both leading interior designers and recent collaborations include the interior lighting specialist Porta Romana for their Bohème collection.

Lara Scobie’s ceramics balance composition and form with pattern and bright pops of colour.

Lara’s multiple awards include an Honourable Mention at the International Ceramics Competition Mino in Japan.

Work of York-based Ruth King features subtle tones, resulting from many years of mastering the art of salt glaze technique.

RAMP ceramics is a creative partnership between Alice Hartford and Rupert Johnstone who have a liking for simple, clean forms, which make a good platform for Alice’s decoration.

Yorkshire-based Anna Lambert makes hand-built earthenware ceramics using various techniques, including slab-building and painted slips.

Anna’s ideas reflect an interest in place, exploring narratives relating to farmland, floodwater management, woodlands and the regeneration of orchards.

Running alongside the fair is a discovery programme all about ceramics in collaboration with the Centre of Ceramic Art.

The programme involves hands-on creating, a series of talks and demonstrations featuring techniques from the makers themselves.

This is the second York Ceramics Fair, organised by the Craft Potters Association. Entry is £5 and under 16s free. For more details, visit yorkceramicsfair.com
