The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery is a unique venue, ideally located in Stoke-on-Trent's City Centre is home to the collection of Staffordshire ceramics, a World War II Spitfire, decorative arts and natural history. Its Fine Art collection lies in the early 20th century British art production, works by local artists. The collection has largely grown through donations and some works have been purchased by the gallery itself or with assistance from the Arts Council, The Friends of The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery and the Contemporary Art Society.  Through The Contemporary Art Society Special Collection Scheme the museum has been able to acquire works that challenge traditional divisions between art and craft, collecting works by Grayson Perry, Gavin Turk and Jacqui Poncelet.
