Dr Christopher McHugh studied archaeology at the universities of Durham (BA, 1998) and Cambridge (MPhil, 2000). In 2015, he was awarded a PhD in Ceramics from the University of Sunderland.
Christopher’s practice-led ceramics research explores the relationship between artistic and archaeological methodologies, often focusing on archives, museum collections and communities. He publishes and exhibits internationally, and his work has recently been shown as part of the RUA Annual Show (2021), Ceramics Ireland’s Triennial (2020) and the British Ceramics Biennial (2019). His work is held in public collections in Ireland (Irish State Art Collection) and Japan (Seto Art Museum).
