SHAPED BY HAND
1957-2009 NZ Potters Inc
The Museum of Wellington gets fired up this autumn with the opening of its new
feature exhibition Shaped By Hand –1957-2009 NZ Potters Inc. on the 4th of
March.
This major retrospective profiles the dynamic New Zealand ceramic scene and
presents works from 50 national exhibitions held by New Zealand Potters Inc.
With a diverse range of works on display, visitors will see stunning examples of
ceramic styles and will be given an insight into how New Zealand pottery has
developed over the years.
Museum of Wellington Director Brett Mason says ‘this exhibition is a way of
telling the story of the development of pottery from a social history viewpoint as
well as an aesthetic one.’
On-site demonstrations by acclaimed potters, every Wednesday and Saturday
throughout the exhibition, will give visitors the chance to learn the different
processes and techniques used to create these beautiful works of art.
Kids can also design, create and glaze their own ceramic pieces in Sunday
workshops throughout April and May and a ‘Raku Firing’ on Saturday 4 April will
provide the public with the opportunity to purchase and fire up their own work of
art.
With tangible objects and audio-visual displays - including ‘The Incredible
Shapeshifter’ a short ‘claymation’ film by local artist Alejandro Davila - this
exhibition will appeal to all ages.

SHAPED BY HAND –1957-2009 NZ Potters Inc
Open 4 March to 28 June
