The 60th CERAMICUS exhibition opening was celebrated on Wednesday evening, 14 November. The exhibition, at Academy Galleries on Queens Wharf from 16 November to 1 December, shows over 150 original clay works created by the Wellington Potters’ Association members including new pieces by guest artist Sam Duckor-Jones. Held together with Splash 2018, the national exhibition of Watercolour New Zealand, the walls display impressive and colourful artworks too.
The Nelson Pottery Supplies Award for Innovation in Ceramics was won by Dani Henke’s piece “Deer?” which impressed the judge with its twist on original and projected artwork.
A big congratulations to Dani. Awesome. :-)
