Also at CAL

As well as the exhibitors and talks, we have a few other attractions at CAL this year

There’s our traditional book and tool shop with a specially curated selection of ceramics focused books, so you can actually see them in the flesh and choose them based on what’s inside.
You’ll also find Ceramic Review’s big screen masterclasses by the catering area.

Make Space

with Potclays and London Potters
This is your chance to get stuck in and do some making yourself. Get your hands dirty and your mind active by helping to sculpt a collection of objects (people, creatures, buildings, real or imagined, anything you want) that will form an evolving installation over the course of Ceramic Art London.
We’re hugely grateful to Potclays for donating more than a ton of clay and to London Potters for hosting. After the event all the clay will be going to London Potters to be reclaimed and reused.

Potclays is a fourth generation family company with 90 years history in Stoke-on-Trent making top quality clay and we’re very grateful to them for providing all the clay for this project.

London Potters is a voluntary organisation formed in 1986 to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences of all those involved with an interest in ceramics. We are a London based society (but not restricted to London) offering memberships to both professional and non-professional potters and ceramicists and on a non-selected basis.

FiredUp4 was born from a passionate belief in the transformative power of creativity, and that making with clay has invaluable therapeutic benefits for the young.
FiredUp4 raises funds in partnership with OnSide, to place clay into the hands of hundreds of young people, providing studios, equipment, and training within the Network of Youth Zones across the UK. These Youth Zones are dynamic independent charities committed to supporting young people to discover their passion and their purpose.
British Ceramics Biennial Recast Project
For Ceramic Art London 2024, British Ceramics Biennial (BCB) are excited to share the Recast programme.

The Recast programme combines creativity, addiction recovery and clay. It’s a collaboration between BCB and Stoke Recovery Service that’s been running since 2017.

Our current cohort of Recast project recovery artists have been working to make new pieces for display. Alongside the wonderful ceramic work will be photographs and quotes from participants, drawings and sketches from our new project, Clay Talk, and the specially commissioned Recast 2023 Film by Thomas Payton-Greene.

Visitors to the Recast stand will have the opportunity to find out more through conversation with the recovery artists, BCB associate artists and staff from BCB and SRS.
