Competition 2024

Make Mine Miniature

Once again the special Make Mine Miniature competition of contemporary ceramics in miniature will take place this year, sponsored by Sixtowns Gin.

Exhibiting artists will make a unique miniature piece which is a true representation of their work to fit inside a Cone Box (7.6 cm by 7.6cm by 15.2cm). Cones are used to monitor ceramic firings to gauge the temperature inside the kiln to ensure a successful firing.

The miniature version of work by exhibitors will be displayed within Waterperry House during the show (until around 2pm on Sunday).

Last year's winners were Ellen Rijsdorp Keramiek, Leonie Rutter Art and Chiu-i Wu Ceramics.
