Make Mine Miniature – supporting the charity Adopt A Potter
Celebrating Ceramics featured a special exhibition and competition of contemporary ceramics in miniature.
Exhibiting artists made unique miniatures 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.
Entries were judged, by both the public and the festival’s panel of artists, for technical and aesthetic quality and had to be true to the maker’s style.
Here are the winners from 2019, with just a handful of votes between the three of them:
Simon Griffiths Sculpture first place
Marie Prett second place
Nichola Theakston third place.
Congratulations to all who entered.
All work in the competition was on sale during the festival, with a donation from the sales going to support Adopt A Potter.
