Challenging preconceptions of ceramic practice with a diverse mix of modern and contemporary sculptures, installations and objects.

Works by modern masters such as Pablo Picasso, Edmund de Waal and Betty Woodman are shown alongside special commissions by contemporary Welsh artists Lowri Davies, Adam Buick and Claire Curneen. A documentary captures the creation of the new works.

Installations by Phoebe Cummings, Clare Twomey and Keith Harrison add to the six-gallery show. While Cummings presents a decorative sci-fi world on raw clay, Twomey asks visitors to walk across her art work in order to destroy it.
