The next Members’ Exhibition of the Australian Ceramics Association will be held from April 28 to May 2, 2010. It will be held in Gulgong, New South Wales, and will be called “340 grams”. That mysterious title will be explained in a moment.
The unusual title of the 2010 exhibition, “340 grams”, is taken from the weight of a normal issue of The Journal of Australian Ceramics. The challenge is to use 340 grams of wet clay to make a bowl or a sculpture.
You can find an on-line entry form here or contact the The Australian Ceramics Association (by phone on 1300 720 124 or by email at email@example.com) and they will post or email you one.
Members can submit one or two works — just remember that each completed work must weigh less than 340 grams. TACA will charge 20 per cent commission on sales. Entries close February 15, 2010.
Welcome to the Robert Gordon Australia blog, which we aim to make a focus point of information, education and discussion about ceramics, design, issues and innovations.
This blog will be about all levels of the industry in which we operate and the market in which our readers are interested. If it’s news, we want to let you know about it. If there is a voice with something important to say, we are happy to share it. If there’s a good story to be told from the present or the past, we want to tell it.
Of course, we’d like to spend some time talking about us as well, providing an insight into the day-to-day life of a large commercial pottery. Playing with mud is the best bit, but it’s all fun and exciting to us and we’d love to share it with anyone interested.
Most importantly, we want to swap thoughts with you, our clients, friends and colleagues in the wonderful world of ceramics. So please drop by the blog often and leave a comment asking a question, offering an opinion or just saying hi.
