Ceramic Contemporaries is an exciting exhibition that supports
ceramists early in their careers.
It shows work from new makers up to five years after leaving college
and current students (including post-graduates) at institutions
throughout the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. The word
'ceramics' is interpreted in the widest possible sense.
This is an opportunity for emerging makers - whether they be potters
or sculptors -to submit their latest (often their most challenging)
pieces, and for audiences to view the freshest new work in clay.
Previous Ceramic Contemporaries have been very well received, attracting
press and television coverage, and many past exhibitors have now
become prominent in their field.
Previous exhibitors include: Felicity Aylieff, Steve Harrison,
Clare Twomey, Susan Halls, Zoe Whiteside, Hadrian Pigott, Claire
Curneen, Duncan Ayscough, Catrin Howell, Nicholas Arroyave Portela, and Tavs Jorgenson

Speak for Yourself
The Interpreting Ceramics Research Collaboration (ICRC) is working on a project about ceramics makers writing on their own practices, entitled 'Speak for Yourself'. An issue of the journal Interpreting Ceramics will be devoted to this theme, and there is a call for suitable articles on the journal web site at
ICRC/speak for yourself. ICRC are also running a competition with prizes for the best writing by ceramics students, which will be judged by an invited panel and published in the journal.
