Applications deadline: April 1st.
🌎 In the latest issue of Studio Potter, Nicolle Hamm explores the routes of ceramic raw materials in an effort to understand the impact of her practice. Randi O’Brien, co-editor of SP: “She has a sincere passion for ceramics and the clay community and pairs those strengths with the knowledge that material routes place a heavy burden on the earth we call home. Her article is a call to look beyond ourselves, summon the talents and strength we inherently carry, and transform our practices into purposeful work.”
✨ Applications are open for the Greenwich House Pottery Residency and Fellowship Program, in New York. The program has existed since at least the early 1960s when Jane Hartsook invited Peter Voulkos to teach and work in the Pottery, but was relaunched in 2015. This is an opportunity for experienced ceramic artists to have the time and resources to experiment and create a new body of work. Applications due: April 1st.
