Southern Ceramic Group


Southern Ceramic Group

Annual Exhibition in Chichester 

The Southern Ceramic Group consists of over 170 enthusiastic ceramicists who live and work in the south of England and share a passion for creating in clay.

The members are as diverse as the objects they create. Some have spent a lifetime perfecting their craft while others have come to it only recently, after careers ranging from engineering to medicine to dance and teaching. What they all share is intense creativity. During a year in which they have all been struggling to show their work, they have been locked in their studios busy creating and experimenting.

Now there is an opportunity to see – and buy – the fruits of these labours as they bring their work to the group’s annual exhibition in the beautiful Old Kitchen in the Bishop’s Palace in Chichester: a real, live and in-person exhibition-cum-sale! The work to be exhibited includes both traditional and experimental functional ware as well as sculptural and decorative pieces. You will find brightly coloured tableware, subtle ash glazed vases, stoneware bottles, carved sculptures, painted tiles and framed ceramic art for hanging on walls. The most striking thing about this exhibition is the enormous range of artefacts created from the same materials.
