Browse and buy beautiful pottery at the Geffrye Museum next weekend, as part of the London Design Festival.

Ceramics in the City is an annual showcase of the best of British potters, both leading names and rising stars.

As the above images show, there’s a real variety on display at the Geffrye, from classic tablewear to delicate decorative pieces to rough earthy stonewear. Prices start from just £10 for mugs and smaller objects to several hundred pounds for a large scale work.

The ceramics are on display in the Geffrye's contemporary gallery, and admission is free. As well as browsing and buying, you’ll also get the chance to meet the makers, and watch free demonstrations. (Nothing cooler than buying a new piece from the guy who made it.)

Ceramics in the City is at the Geffrye Museum 136 Kingsland Road, Shoreditch, London E2, from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 September, between 10am and 5pm (opens at noon on Sunday). Admission is free. Nearest station is Hoxton on the Overground. Visit www.geffrye-museum.org.uk for more information.
