The Franz Rising Star Project seeks to encourage, support and reward students to work with porcelain, and stimulate a global interest in the creative potential of a next generation of ceramic artists.
Through an annual competition FRANZ Rising Star Project offers 100 scholarships, each of USD$ 1000 to aspiring students worldwide. The winners are further supported in their career development through support and international showcasing.
In partnership with Franz Chen, the project founders, BCB is pleased to be able to support the ambitions of the project by showcasing a selection of recipients of the 2018 awards.
