“Thou shalt not make any graven image…” This quotation was found amongst papers left by William “Quaker” Pegg, a young ceramic artist who specialised in flower painting at the Derby China Works.
George Drury examines the contradictory behaviour of Pegg, who produced work of exceptional quality that is now displayed in local and national galleries and is avidly collected. In 1800 he gave up his career, suffering 12 years of hardship to follow his Quaker convictions before returning to the factory. Come and discover more about this exceptional Derbeian - his personality, his powerful religious convictions and the special qualities of his work.
Cost : £6
