Join us to celebrate the opening of ‘Lisa Hammond: Future Perfect**’ at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset**

Featuring Lisa Hammond MBE, Florian Gadsby, Francis Lloyd-Jones and Darren Ellis

Inviting a dialogue between mentor and apprentice, the exhibition presents works by potter Lisa Hammond MBE and three of her former students to explore the passing of knowledge between makers. For the past 28 years Hammond has championed the revival of studio pottery in the UK alongside her own practice, driven by a commitment to share her expertise and skills with the next generation of potters.

‘Future Perfect’ is an important celebration of Hammond’s practice and her significant contribution to studio pottery and the pursuit of ceramic skills. Presented alongside Hammond, the works of her three apprentices each demonstrate their distinct practices, whilst expressing narratives driven by connections with material, process, and experimentation. Together, they question our perception towards the functional and reflect the importance of rediscovering tradition; offering a glimpse towards the future of making to come.

‘Lisa Hammond: Future Perfect’ will run at Make, Hauser & Wirth Somerset until 2 April 2022. Find out more about the exhibition here.

This event takes place 6 – 8 pm at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset, 13 High Street, Bruton, Somerset BA10 0AB.
