The University of Wales, Aberystwyth, Ceramic
Archive was deposited in the Library in May 1997 per Moira Vincentelli,
School of Art, Buarth Mawr, Aberystwyth.

The Craft Potters Association archive was
initiated in the early 1970s by Robert Fournier, a CPA member, with the
aim of collecting documents which would maintain a record of the origins,
organisation, activities and development of the Association. By 1988,
the CPA archive had grown into a substantial body of material which needed
a more permanent and larger location, and its holdings were offered and
accepted by the University of Wales Ceramic Archive, based at the School
of Art, Aberystwyth.

The archive contains material showing how
the Craft Potters Association was formed between 1956 and 1957 with the
help of the Rural Industries Bureau. In 1958, the Association was registered
as a Provident Society and as such was, and is, still organised and run
by its members. The Minutes of Council and Annual General Meetings are
included from the 1950s to the present time. There is also material showing
the range of CPA activities, the most important being exhibition and educational

Also included are details of exhibitions
held at the CPA shop, London, since 1960 and at other larger venues. Price
lists and correspondence relating to solo and group exhibitions are also
to be found, together with documents and correspondence concerning the
selection process for membership of the CPA. Financial records and accounts
are also included. Material relating to educational activities includes
information sheets on individual potters’ talks, workshops, potters camps,
festivals and film festivals. There is a wealth of material which documents
the organisation of these events by CPA members. The CPA papers also provide
a unique record of the development and evolution of the Association.

Other material relating to a wider field
of ceramics production and activities was also collected: journals and
magazines; publicity material for exhibitions from museums, libraries,
galleries, educational establishments and shops; publications from auction
rooms; catalogues from pottery supplies; information about individual
potters and potteries, miscellaneous cuttings and other relevant material. In
addition photographs were collected, many of which relate to CPA events. These
have been transferred to the Department of Pictures and Maps (199800201-199800211). Audio
Visual Aids received as part of the archive have been transferred to The
Sound and Moving Image Collection (VM5674, CM6863, CM6864, FS-UWACA 1-10).
