Top of the Pots

Our Wall of Pots presents over 1,000 ceramics from across our collection, dating from the Roman period right through to the present day. It celebrates colour in ceramics and is designed to offer a rainbow of pots. Each month we will be voting on our Top Pot in the wall.

Let us know which is your favourite! Visit the gallery and leave a comment card, email us at, or get involved on social media with a Tweet @CoCAYork or @YMT_FionaArt.
