Potteries Museum and Art Gallery Presents Minerals Make Mountains

The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery presents Minerals Make Mountains on view through 3 Jul 2011.

Victorian artist and thinker John Ruskin may not have got it totally correct when he said that “Mountains are the beginning and the end of all natural scenery”. In a sense there is no beginning and end to mountains as they are a part of the endless rock cycle that is driven by the dynamic Earth.

Mixing art and nature from the permanent collections of the Museum, this exhibition illustrates the various stages of the cycle that turns rocks into the minerals that make mountains.
