Michael Eden: Wedgwood and Wouldn’t
@ The Bowes MuseumBook Now
27 May 2017 - 17 September 2017
Viewable all day during Bowes Museum opening hours
This exhibition celebrates the Wedgwoodn’t Vases by the contemporary artist Michael Eden. His designs are loosely based on early Wedgwood Vases, chosen because Josiah Wedgwood was at the forefront of the first Industrial Revolution. In order to create his fashionable and desirable pottery, Wedgwood transformed both the ways that ceramics were made and the materials they were made from.
Eden is at the forefront of a new industrial revolution using 3D printing to create objects that were previously impossible to manufacture with conventional ceramic techniques.
