Quite a sobering view. From the huge Minton Factory in Stoke on Trent....to yet another supermarket. How is this progress? All that’s left is the statue that you can just make out in the car park ofColin Minton Campbell which originally stood proudly outside of the Minton offices.
Thankfully there are still some great things happening in Stoke, none more so than the British Ceramics Biennial which continues in an amazing building on the Spode site in Stoke until the 8th November http://www.britishceramicsbiennial.com/
And if you’d like a personal tour of some amazing potteries and meet some great people along the way, you can do no better than contact Jan at Clutter and Fettle https://www.facebook.com/Clutter-Fettle-133009613559424/. What a great way to spend a few days and we guarantee you’ll return with work from some great British artists!
