The exhibition ‘There’s Many a Slip Twixed Cup and Lip’, held between
8th January and 14th February 2016 took its cue from the Alison Britton
Exhibition of the same name and explored the capacity of ceramic
material and process to affect interpretation of the humble vessel form.
As a collective, the show bore testimony to the poignancy of the vessel as both thematic and functional object. With work
taken from each year on the undergraduate programme demonstrating
initial exploration of form and technique by students just three months
into the course amidst the more honed skill base of recent graduates.
