Celebrating Ceramics at Waterperry Gardens 2020

With the continued restrictions affecting the UK likely to be in force for some time yet this year’s Celebrating Ceramics Festival has been cancelled.

Celebrating Ceramics 2021 will take place from 16-18 July 2021. We hope to see you there!

In the meantime we hope you will visit our online Virtual Ceramics Fair here soon.


Make Mine Miniature

Celebrating Ceramics 2019 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 the public 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.
