This exhibition explores how slipware ceramics developed in the county from the late 1600s onward.

Decorative and functional ceramics have been produced in Somerset for hundreds of years.

In England, during the 17th and 18th centuries, some of the greatest examples of slipware ceramics were produced. This popular decorative technique was widely used, prior to the introduction of enamel.

The exhibition includes Donyatt pottery, made in South Somerset, alongside Elton Ware and Fishley Holland Ware made in Clevedon and Wesuma Ware from Weston-super-Mare.
