Architectural Terracotta (2 Parts)

Synopsis
Slides illustrating the development of terracotta and examining some of the buildings in Britain where it may still be found. Part 1 (1999) focuses on the city of Manchester, with its wealth of terracotta buildings from all periods, and covers how and where terracotta was made, its use by architects in civic and commercial buildings, the involvement of artists in developing ornamentation, critical issues arising from its use, and the eventual decline in its popularity. Part 2 (2000) illustrates a selection of British terracotta buildings from St Stephen’s and All Martyrs Church, Bolton, the first fully constructional terracotta building (1842) to the New Art Gallery, Walsall, opened in February 2000.
