BARROWFIELD, BRITANNIA, BUCHAN, BELLS: EXPLORING OVER 200 YEARS OF SCOTTISH CERAMICS IN 50 POTS

In Glasgow, the city skyline was once littered with kiln chimneys. Beginning on the banks of the river Clyde with the opening of Delftfield pottery in 1748, and ending with the closure of Govancroft in the 1980s, Scotland has a long history of industrial ceramic production.

These 50 pots tell the story of the throwers, bottom knockers, transferware engravers, firemen, mould makers and decorators who worked the Scottish industrial potteries. They are artefacts that have outlived the buildings in which they were produced, and the people that produced them.

The exhibition will also showcase creative, contemporary responses to Scotland’s pottery heritage, made by City of Glasgow College applied arts students.

The Scottish Pottery society celebrates 50 years with this exhibition.

Maryhill Burgh Halls has wheelchair access, accessible toilets and large print materials.
