In a ground-breaking exhibition, “Shaping Ceramics: From Lucie Rie to Edmund de Waal”, the Jewish Museum London shows the impact on studio pottery in Britain of Jewish artists who fled Nazi Europe. Lucie Rie, Hans Coper, Grete Marks and Ruth Duckworth brought a modernist aesthetic to the craft. The exhibition also shows the work of ceramists who express in one way or another their relation to their Jewish heritage: Dan Arbeid, David Breuer-Weil, David Cohen, Janet Haig, David Jones, Antonia Salmon, Ray Silverman, Jenny Stolzenberg and Edmund de Waal. A  review follows later.

Open until 26 February 2017.
