Organised in collaboration with Fen Ditton Gallery and with the support of Amanda Game.    


Slipware was first launched at our Oxford gallery in 2021 and was re-imagined, with some new additions, for the beautiful spaces at Fen Ditton Gallery.  


‘As somebody with strong links to both galleries, and a keen interest in modern ceramics, it felt exciting to show the exhibition in Fen Ditton near museums such as the Fitzwilliam which has outstanding collections in the area and a strong commitment to contemporary ceramics.’ 

Amanda Game 


 ‘We are delighted to have this opportunity to show these wonderful works by 3 generations of artists to our many, Cambridge-based supporters and to build on our occasional connection to Fen Ditton through Amanda.   We enjoy Fen Ditton’s commitment to many different forms of contemporary work and their focus, through the work of Gallery Manager, Hannah Munby, on building links to the next generation of collectors.   We look forward to bringing some fine ceramics to this new setting’.
