This fun and thought-provoking exhibition had something for all the family to enjoy. Sensational Clay was an exhibition of ceramics to stimulate the senses by Herefordshire based potter Jon Williams.

The works had all been inspired by the five senses, and all had a secret to discover, from tiny hand-held items to huge one-metre wide pots! Visitors had the opportunity to explore the pieces to find out more – They were able to lift lids to discover hidden treasures, shake ‘musical pots’ to make some noise or try to guess the smells coming from the scented vessels!

The show was very well received with hundreds of visitors leaving favourable comments. A hand-full took the time to blog about their visit:
