With over 1,600 objects, embracing all craft disciplines and the most important makers over the last 50 years, the collection is the bedrock of our exhibitions and loans programme across the UK.
We continuously aim to acquire new work to represent contemporary makers and ensure that the collection remains current. We also look after its conservation and aim to share it as widely as possible across the nation with loans and touring exhibitions. Your support as a Ruby Circle patron will enhance the richness and the reach of the collection and help us to pursue these aims.
