With Keith Brymer Jones, potter & ceramic designer

Join us for an unmissable talk with Keith Brymer Jones, renowned potter and judge on the popular TV series, The Great Pottery Throw Down.

Keith will be sharing his love and experience of working with ceramics and the influence of clay on his life. He reflects:

'I’m delighted to be speaking at the Ashmolean. Throughout my career as a potter I have always been fascinated by the creative endeavours of artists. Ever since having the privilege of being a judge on The Great Pottery Throw Down, I have seen firsthand how clay can be so expressive in colour, form and function. I shall be exploring how and why the medium of clay has been so important to me throughout my life.'

Keith also contributed the foreword to the Ashmolean's recent publication, Around the World in 80 Pots.
