About

About Jennifer Lee: the potter’s space

This exhibition is the first solo presentation of the renowned ceramicist, Jennifer Lee’s work in a UK public gallery since 1994. It includes 40 works made from different periods throughout Lee’s entire career as well as new pots which have been especially made for the exhibition at Kettle’s Yard.

Jennifer Lee is a major presence to have emerged from studio ceramics of the 1970s, whose practitioners dismantled notions of clay as a medium confined to functional forms and domestic environments.
