The Ceramic Collection of Aberystwyth University is one of the major collections of non-industrial ceramics in Britain. It features over 1700 pieces as evidence of the highest achievements of contemporary British and international ceramics, and is particularly noted for its early 20th century collection of studio pottery. It is supported by an active Ceramic Archive that is available to all.

Some items are also on display at the School of Art. Items are also held in store in both locations. If you would like to see an item in store please contact us to arrange a visit. The Ceramic Archive is based at the School of Art, Aberystwyth University.
