Classic Pottery Comes To Corinium Museum

Go potty over pottery at the Corinium Museum this winter and come and feast your eyes on a wide range of family wares.

The Eeles Family Pottery exhibition will be on display at the Park Street museum from November 3rd until January next year, and will showcase a vast collection of pottery dishes, platters, vases, jars, cooking pots, cheese dishes and wine jars.

All the pottery is available to buy, and is decorated individually using a wide range of techniques. It is mainly the Stoneware type, which is primarily made from clay, as well as Porcelain and Raku types. Inspiration for the patterns are mainly drawn from nature, with grasses, leaves, flowers and shells usually illustrated onto the items.

The Eeles family - who are David and Patricia, and their sons Benjamin and Simon - work from a 17th Century coaching inn in west Dorset. In the past fifty years, David and his family have shown their pottery at over two hundred exhibitions across Great Britain.

Anyone wanting further information on the museum and any events going on should contact Jane Bovenizer or Helen Arbon on 01285 655611 or email museums@cotswold.gov.uk to find out more.
