Ceramics is one of the most ancient industries on the planet. As early as 24,000 BC, animal and human figurines were made from clay and other materials then fired in kilns partially dug into the ground. There is a long history of ceramic art in almost all developed cultures and ceramic objects are often the only artistic evidence left from vanished cultures.
Ceramic artists exhibiting at the PURE Autumn Art Fair will include Celia Allen, Barbara Green-Blower, Elia Pagliarino, Stephanie Wright, Jemma Wyllie and Maria Zervudachi.
