A menagerie of creatures in clay

A ZOO in Todmorden..?

Creatures from the wild - monkeys, elephants, camels, frogs and fishes sit alongside domestic dogs, cats, bulls, pigs and chickens, but this menagerie, however, is made entirely of clay!

For those who haven’t seen it, artists from the Northern Potters Association were asked by Rosemary Holcroft, curator of the Water Street Gallery, Todmorden, to respond to the title “All Creatures Great and Small”.

It is an exhibition of spectacular works by established professional ceramicists alongside the work of gifted amateurs and emerging young talent. All of the work is for sale and the exhibition runs until July 1 (Wednesday to Sunday).
