Richard Lamb: The Everyday Life Collector
A project by Max Lamb and Apartamento.
Richard Lamb has been collecting British studio pottery and 20th Century ceramics for nearly 15 years purely as a hobby. His collection has slowly accumulated during weekly visits to car-boot sales, flea markets, charity shops and the occasional antiques market. The exhibition will present a curated selection of studio pottery pieces from Cornwall and London created during the 1960s through to the early 1990s. The studio potteries represented in the exhibition include Troika, Tremaen, Leaper, Carn, Tintagel, Tremar and Celtic from Cornwall, Briglin Pottery from London, and Bernard Rooke from Suffolk. In addition there will also be a collection of objects hand carved and turned from Serpentine, a stone found only on the Lizard peninsula in South West Cornwall.
