Artists in Cornwall have come together to create work exclusively for our new exhibition, ‘Rooted’, inspired by the history and atmosphere of the china clay works.

The exhibition is on display in the Roger Preston Gallery, and also around the grounds, from 22 October to 20 December.

The ceramics-focused exhibition includes a mixture of sculptures and vessels (both hand-built and thrown), collaborations between ceramicists and jewellers, sound, film, and painting and photography inspired by the industrial site.

Some pieces will also be available to purchase. 

A dedicated Instagram page (@rooted.cornwall) houses a selection of the artists’ current work, to allow those interested to follow the process.

Entry to the exhibition is included within normal museum admission.
