Quietus is a major solo exhibition from internationally-acclaimed ceramicist Julian Stair, exploring the containment of the human body after death.

The show features a specially-commissioned collection of funerary vessels interpreting the symbolism of various rituals across the world and throughout history, from cinerary jars to life-sized sarcophagi.

The exhibition will later be touring to Winchester Cathedral.
