We have some exciting news to share…
Twenty-one of the UK’s most talented recent ceramics graduates have been selected for Fresh, one of the flagship exhibitions in the British Ceramics Biennial festival. Fresh celebrates and gives a critical platform for the new wave of makers, artists and designers working in clay as they begin their creative careers.
From ceramic tiles inspired by Pakistani truck art to a Delftware collection reflecting on transgender issues, work by these artists brings together the full ceramics spectrum: studio pottery, tableware, industrial design, figurative and abstract sculpture and installation.
Work by the Fresh exhibitors will be on show in The China Hall of the original Spode Factory Site, the hub of the BCB festival. On 3 October during the BCB 2019 AWARDS night, two Fresh exhibitors will be awarded a one-month residency opportunity with Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Centre, Denmark and with BCB Studio in Stoke-on-Trent.
Congratulations to Alice Walton, Benjamin Kew, Chloe Bell, Ngah Tho Ng (Debbie), Elizabeth Degenszejn, Emily Stapleton-Jefferis, Eunjung Suh, Gina Baum, Ho Jung Kim, Ho Lai, Laura Plant, Lisa Allan, Loh Lik Kian, Luke Fuller, Nehal Aamir, Pam Su, Rose Schmits, Steven Edwards, Steven Sales, Tim Martin and Toni De-Jesus.
