Refracted Commentary: An exhibition of new ceramics from Fine Art Students at Newcastle University



Students from Newcastle Fine Art were invited to devise new work in response to the Shipley’s John Christian Collection of Studio Ceramics. The collection is vast and varies from the historical to the contemporary, introducing the students to a range of ceramic techniques and processes. When creating, students took inspiration from form, movement, texture, colour and contextual narrative of the artwork, approaching the collection with exploration and invention. Originally imagined as a physical exhibition at the Shipley itself with the collection pieces alongside, we hope that viewers enjoy this new online iteration and are intrigued by the many different creations that inspire a relationship between the Shipley collection and the students' own identities.
