Enjoy the British Ceramics Biennial

Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire

Back for its fourth year in Stoke-on-Trent, the British Ceramics Biennial will feature the best in contemporary ceramic art and craft.

This British Ceramics Biennial (BCB) is featuring over 60 national and international ceramic artists in numerous venues across the world-famous ‘Potteries’. Running from September 26th to November 8th, the festival will draw on the history, heritage and creative edge of Stoke-on-Trent & The Potteries to bring together a range of new exhibitions, installations, activities, and special events, as well as several opportunities to purchase exhibition pieces, one-off and limited edition work.

A programme highlight for 2015 will be a new WW1 commemorative installation, created by artists Steven Dixon and Johnny Magee.  In honour of the fallen men of the North Staffordshire Regiment, 194000 will feature 5,608 flowers incorporating forget-me-nots as a symbol of memory and love - all handcrafted from white bone china, and tagged with individual memory markers. There will also be an opportunity for visitors to the BCB to get involved in the creation and interpretation of the installation.
