The Young & Beautiful: Michael Cardew, Modern Pots, Colonialism and the Counterculture (Talk) by Tanya Harrod

  • St Ives Arts Club Westcotts Quay TR26 2DZ United Kingdom (map)

Tanya Harrod, author of the award-winning biography of Michael Cardew ‘The Last Sane Man’, talks about one of the most remarkable craftsmen of the 20th century. Cardew was a man of paradox who ended his days a ceramic magus, his pottery at Wenford Bridge, Cornwall an outpost of the counterculture and a haven for disaffected youth.
