10:00 am - 6:00 pm
The Bridge Pottery Collective (BPC) was established in 2011 as a home for pottery equipment, including a lustre kiln that was bequeathed by Margery Clinton [1932-2004] to her friend, and founding member of the collective, Alison Robinson. In 2011, the BPC opened in St Margaret’s House.
Through Alison, the BPC have been awarded Heritage Lottery Funding for their project ‘Scottish Lustre, Keeping the Flame Alive’; which so far has seen the reinstatement of Marjory’s Lustre Kiln and the start of a project to catalogue and digitalise Margery’s glaze notes and samples. The project is a partnership between the Bridge Pottery Collective & Edinburgh Palette (who run St Margaret’s House).
The three concurrent exhibitions are:
● Margery Clinton | A Retrospective.
● Chasing Rainbows | The Story of Lustre featuring work by contemporary lustre potters.
● Scottish Studio Pottery | celebrating the diversity of work made by Potters and Ceramic Artists working in South East Scotland.
The Exhibitions will open on Saturday 11th October and run until Sunday 2nd November in the impressive Galleries at St Margaret’s House. Open Monday to Friday 2pm-6pm and
All welcome. Admission free.
