In order to provide a historical dimension a group of 28 works (including some lent from the British Council Collection) by Michael Cardew, Hans Coper, Bernard Leach and Lucie Rie formed 
an introductory section. The remainder of the exhibition, which totalled altogether 95 objects, showed work by the following artists: Gordon Baldwin, Richard Batterham,
Alison Britton, Elisabeth Fritsch, Walter Keeler, Gillian Lowndes, Jacqueline Poncelet, Sara Radstone, Richard Slee, Martin Smith, Angus Suttie and Janice Tchalenko.

The Crafts Council lent generously from its collection and other pieces were borrowed from private collections and from the artists. The catalogue and poster were
printed in Czechoslovakia using texts and illustrations provided by the Department and Alison Britton  contributed an introductory essay setting the work in the
context of present day British ceramics.
