During the mid-twentieth century ceramics and sculpture developed mostly independently of one another, with perhaps one key exception. A shared departure from the smooth forms of the inter-war period to a celebration of rough, irregular surfaces united the two otherwise contending disciplines at this time.

Jeffrey Jones (Reader in Ceramics, Cardiff School of Art & Design), who curated the exhibition A Rough Equivalent: Sculpture and Pottery in the Post-War Period, discusses the shared changes of aesthetic, taking as a starting point the views of important critics and makers of the time such as David Sylvester, Bernard Leach and Herbert Read.
