Neil Brownsword, Grand Prize winner of the International Competition of GICB 2015, sheds light on the displacement of intangible cultural heritage in North Staffordshire’s ceramics industry at this solo exhibition. The exhibition invites viewers to ask questions about the value and relevance of inter-generational skills with a view to raising awareness of increasingly threatened intangible cultural heritage that has supported a local economy for nearly 300 years. This exhibition involves a series of live demonstrations by some of the last artisans of this time who were employed in the ceramics industry in the UK.

One could hardly discuss English culture without discussing ‘afternoon tea culture,’ the subject of this exhibition.
Selected works from the KOCEF collection of livingware ceramics produced by British tableware companies including Wedgewood, Royal Doulton, Aynsley, and Royal Crown Derby are presented.
Both ceramics and the cultural background of tea time, which drove the development of the British ceramics industry, are introduced in diverse ways.
