Beautiful objects, fascinating stories
There are over 2,000 objects in the Stradling Collection including studio and commercial ceramics, glass, sculpture, furniture, industrial design as well as works of art. It is widely recognised as being of national significance and is a real gem in the South West. It is also eclectic and fun and most people who visit enjoy a few “Oooh – we had one of those!” moments.
The Collection holds many stories about its objects, the makers, 48 Park Row and Bristol’s place in the history of craft and design, all vividly brought to life by our Curator, Tanya Martin (pictured).
An architect and ceramicist herself, Tanya’s fascinating tours of the Collection are a real journey through the alchemy and magic of craft and design.
