Pale and Perfect
Ceramics from the Queensland Art Gallery Collection
Oct 2010 -
This exhibition of post-World War Two Australian ceramics focuses on works with subtle and refined glazes. This period saw the emergence of the studio-pottery tradition inspired by the work of British potter Bernard Leach and Japanese potter Shōji Hamada. This Anglo–Japanese collaboration spread to Australia through the medium of Leach's revered text A Potter's Book (1940).
