Art Exhibition opening at Wedgwood

A new art exhibition will be officially opening at our museum soon.

The show features work from eight Staffordshire University students and is inspired by designs from Wedgwood’s iconic pottery of the 20th century.



Student Fiona Cox, 20, has produced tiles and jewellery boxes.

She said: “My tiles took around three weeks to decorate, but I am very excited to be able to have them on display.

“It’s such a big museum and such a prestigious company.

“It will be nice too to see what they public think as the ones who come here are interested in ceramics so they have their own idea of what they like and don’t like.”



Sarah Betts, 29, has created jewellery featuring real ceramic pieces.

She said: “Some of the pieces have been made with real Wedgwood pieces, which I smashed up and then set into frames to make pins.


“Their grounds are littered with ceramics and because they are planting at the moment I managed to salvage them.“The other pieces are made using found ceramics which I actually found at the Staffordshire University site.

“It’s nice to look at the pieces and think about its history. People have used these, chosen them and loved them in the past.”


The exhibition will run at the Wedgwood Museum in Barlaston until June 2014.
