The Portage Ceramic Awards 2012

Post  Ev on Thu 1 Nov - 8:20

The Exhibition is being held at The Cloud at Downtown Auckland this year due to renovations at Lopdell House. What a stunning venue, filled with sunlight with the harbour glistening in the background.
In amongst the crap there was some beautiful pottery.
One of my favourites was Rick Rudd's Ten Green Bottles Smile
Check out the Arts Dairy link for photos from opening night -

I took photos with my phone camera and they didn't come out too bad. Here are some of the pieces that took my eye.
Fran Maguire - hahaa if you looked at this installation too long it made you dizzy Wink
This won a merit award.

Melissa Ford - I found this very attractive as I pick up bits of ceramic from beaches myself Smile

Duncan Shearer - these were just beautiful!

Sangsool Shim & Keumsun Lee - this was absolutely stunning!!!

Chris Weaver - a master craftsman indeed!

Nadine Spalter - These kept drawing me back to them. Such an awesome colour!

Kate McClean - This was so adorable and won a merit award. There was also a Time Capsule in the same style that couldn't be opened for at least 50 years Very Happy
