Lincolnshire’s historic DODDINGTON HALL is hosting a Summer of Ceramics, opening in July with exhibitions of contemporary art presented along-side its extraordinary ceramics collection gathered over 300 years. There will be new displays and tours, talks and demonstrations from leading artists, makers and ceramics experts.
The Elizabethan mansion, near the cathedral city of Lincoln, provides the backdrop to this celebration of ceramics in all its forms. The Hall, designed by renowned Elizabethan architect Robert Smythson, was built of bricks from local clay pits.
The festival includes an exhibition of Doddington Hall’s extraordinary collection - including continental and English porcelain alongside the 20th Century British Studio pottery collection of Antony Jarvis with pieces by world-famous ceramicists with Lincolnshire connections including Edmund de Waal and Gordon Baldwin – alongside an exhibition of international and national ceramicists, staged in its The Stable Yard Galleries.
