The North Shore’s impressive ceramic tradition is highlighted in a fascinating survey exhibition at Northart that explores the local studio pottery movement from its beginnings in early 1950s, through the enormously productive 1970s – during which potters could barely keep up with the popular demand for domestic ware – to the present day as ceramics enjoys a resurgence.

Original pieces by Barry Brickell and Ian Firth, founding members of the North Shore Potters Society, the first of its kind when it was formed in 1951, feature alongside works by other prominent potters through the periods such as Graeme Storm, Merilyn Wiseman, Peter Collis, Peter Shearer and Campbell Hegan.

Those with a keen interest in ceramics can meet a number of the potters and hear about how the craft has developed at a floor talk on Sunday 23 April.

The exhibition opens with an event at 5pm on Sunday 9 April, then runs daily until 3 May, except for the Easter public holidays and Anzac Day.
