Sheffield is home to a thriving community of ceramicists and ceramic artists creating a remarkable breadth of work, from desirable domestic objects to ambitious larger scale sculptural pieces.

Curated by local potter Penny Withers, Shaped from the Earth celebrates the diversity of handmade ceramics produced in the city. The exhibition brings together work by a host of talented local makers, including Antonia Salmon, Brian Holland, Emilie Taylor, Norman Cherry, Hanne Westegaard and more.

The exhibition forms part of The Year of Making, a major city-wide initiative celebrating Sheffield’s international reputation for innovation and excellence in making.
