Calling all pottery lovers! The Hepworth Wakefeld marks 100 years since the gallery’s collection was first established with a series of wonderful exhibitions. One of those, The Art of the Potter: Ceramics and Sculpture from 1930 to Now, celebrates the medium of ceramics and showcases its sculptural potential.

The show is also a celebration of the hard work of the gallery team who continue to work on growing the collection, through donations, gifts and fundraising activities.

The Art of the Potter: Ceramics and Sculpture from 1930 to Now includes a range of work by notable ceramic artists, including a number of new art objects such as the multi-piece of work by Gwyn Hanssen Pigott, 2012, a large moon jar by Akiko Hirari from 2020 and Asymmetric Vessel made by Magdalene Odundo. The last piece will be displayed at the gallery for the very first time since its appearance at the 2022 Venice Biennale.
