Design Evolution: Highlights from the Keatley Trust Collection

(Wednesday) (Friday)

This display highlights some of the outstanding pieces of decorative art on loan to the Museum from the Keatley Trust. John Keatley founded the Trust in 1968 in order to purchase the best-designed and most finely-crafted ceramics, glass, metalwork, woodwork, furniture and book bindings and subsequently lend these to museums around the UK for the benefit and enjoyment of the public. The collection focusses predominantly on the 20th century which, as John says, represents the period of greatest transformation of the lives of most people, in the history of Britain. This display, celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Trust, includes ceramics by Bernard Moore, Bernard Leach and Sam Haile, glass by Paul Nash, John Hutton and Whitefriars, and metalwork by Robert Welch, Gerald Benney, Rod Kelly and Jane Short.

This display is located on the Mezzanine level of the Museum.
