Ceramics in the City, now in its sixth year, will feature an exciting range of work by 45 selected ceramicists in the Geffrye's dynamic modern extension. A variety of styles and techniques will be seen in work ranging from functional domestic objects, such as tableware and lamps, to purely decorative pieces.

This year, the museum will open until 8pm on Friday 21st of September to mark the exhibition's opening day, offering visitors a chance to meet the makers and eat supper in the restaurant. Throughout the three-day show, visitors will have the opportunity not just to browse and buy, but also to talk to the ceramicists and watch free demonstrations. Special craft activities will be run to entertain children throughout Saturday and Sunday.

Exhibitors will include well-established names returning to the Geffrye and some new talents, selected by a panel of judges comprising Marina Vaizey, former art critic for The Times; Karen Bunting, ceramicist and Christine Lalumia, Deputy Director of the Geffrye Museum.

Ceramics in the City has been organised by the Geffrye Museum and ceramicist Karen Bunting, and supported by Mazorca Projects.
