Title:Crockery of Dictinction by Crown Lynn, New Zealand
City Gallery Wellington, 2011. A5 booklet. Crown Lynn: Crockery of Distinction addresses the contemporary situation of our best known local ceramic tradition by asking: how do Crown Lynn objects operate now? Drawing on a range of private and publicly held collections, the exhibition considers the company’s vital role in a history of home-grown creativity, international influence and innovative design, and the nature of collecting itself. From select examples of Crown Lynn’s mass produced lines, through to the self-consciously modern designs of some key designers, these objects are considered for their continuing relevance in our cultural history.
