Highlights include several rare examples of Cipedes (now incorporated into Tasikmalaya), once famous for a distinctive, rich red which has not been produced for over fifty years. 130 pieces will be presented during the exhibition with 3 rotations. 34 - 40 pieces will be on show at a time. There will be an extensive catalogue.

Exhibition: Re-discovering Fowey Moor - evoking the spirit of our wild, local landscape Robin Paris

27 Apr to 21 Jun 2019 , Tuesday to Saturday, 10am - 5pm

Renamed 'Bodmin Moor' by the Ordnance Survey in the 1830s, the granite uplands of North Cornwall had previously been known as 'Fowey Moor' or 'Foye Moor' for hundreds of years. Inhabited by our neolithic and bronze age ancestors, farmed and mined for centuries, sculpted by the weather for aeons, the moor brims with atmosphere, myth, tales and memories. This group exhibition, including work by Robin Paris, explores the spirit of place of this inspiring ancient landscape.
