Fire + Earth: Stephen Cox RA

For the final installment of an image a day from Fire + Earth, we offer you some majestic majolica by Royal Academician Stephen Cox. Stephen’s explorations in the medium came about owing to his interest in the three treatises of Cipriano Piccolpasso on renaissance lead glaze pottery. These works have never been exhibited before, and we’re exceptionally honoured to present them.

Fire + Earth will be on view at Aardvark Books, Brampton Bryan SY7 0DH, from 8-23 April.
