The Portage Ceramic Awards 2008

Post  TimCaulton on Sun Sep 28, 2008 12:29 am

It's that time again with the Portage Ceramic Awards for 2008 coming up very shortly. Opening night is the 9th October invite only, and general opening 10th Oct - 7th Dec.

The exhibition will be at Lopdell House Gallery, Auckland.

If you can you should get a copy of the booklet that's produced each year. Photo's of the pots, an essay or two, and bio's of the potters/artists.

The only thing missing is the critical reviews that used to be written for these sorts of things....

I went to the opening of the Portage Ceramics Awards last night. It was really well worth going to. There was music, dancing, food, tons of people, wine, and ceramics up at the Lopdell House Gallery. The pizza was free flowing hot out of the ovens, Fairy people walked through the crowd with tray upon tray of food. The speeches were kept to a minimum and the prize giving was quickly over, and then it was follow the drummer boys up to the gallery, receive a free copy of the catalogue, and then quickly find the pots you liked and make your way to the counter. The essays in the catalogue are interesting and touch on some of the topics I have been complaining about with regard to critical reviews etc. So go and have a look at the pots, you have until early December.
