Welcome to the Ken Stradling Collection

We aim to promote good design by providing inspiration and information using Ken Stradling’s personal collection of 20th and 21st century ceramics, glass and furniture. Although the gallery is currently closed we are not. We are simply delivering our programme differently due to Covid-19 restrictions.

In response to the Covid-19 restricitions, we are creating an ongoing series of exhibitions to be viewed from the pavement and online. We are using the front windows of our gallery at 48 Park Row, Bristol, so that the exhibitions can be viewed day or night, anytime from outside. No appointment needed!

Our latest brightly coloured window exhibition Making Joy: Fire and Ice, features hand-blown and moulded glass from the 1950s-1970s as well as contemporary makers. Open 15th December – 28th February 2021 .

We are also developing exhibitions online. Our current online exhibition is Loved Designs   presenting a selection of pieces selected from their own homes by Friends of the Collection. For more about our shows and discussion and resources on design in Bristol go to the Stradling Collection blog.  You can also view 60 selected pieces from the Collection on this website.
