ARTIST OPPORTUNITIES AND RESIDENCIES

NCECA INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCY PARTNER PROGRAMS

The purpose of NCECA is to promote and improve the ceramic arts through education, research and creative practice. One of the many ways that NCECA supports its members is by providing opportunities to engage in international programs. Intercultural exchange of ideas and methods is critical to evolution of individual artists who through their immersion and experimentation, absorb and sometimes transform influences of other artists and their cultures. Since launching this initiative, NCECA has participated in programs in Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe. NCECA is committed to the idea that global interface will continue to play an important role in our organization’s efforts to sustain and advance a vibrant ceramic art and education community.

Consideration for NCECA International Residency opportunities is open all NCECA members.

Pocosin Arts School of Fine Craft, located in Columbia, NC is hosting its second annual Drinking Vessel & Earring Show Juried by Tom Bartel and Kathleen Browne. Invited artists include Nikki Couppee, Donna D’Aquino, and Jason Bige Burnett. The show opens Friday, February 22 and runs through June 29, 2019 – all works must be for sale, 60% goes to the artist. Artists are responsible for shipping to and from the show.

Functional objects differ from decorative objects through user interaction. With the intent that the object is handled and used, certain aspects of its formal creation are called to attention. Comfort, familiarity, and usability all introduce essential considerations for the functional object. Ware/Wear seeks to gather and celebrate these concerns in the form of cups and earrings, both longstanding objects in human history that have been found in some form in every civilization.

Please submit up to 3 cups, and/or pairs of earrings. Your submission(s) must be fully functional and usable.

In 2016, the LOEWE FOUNDATION launched the international annual LOEWE Craft Prize to showcase and celebrate newness, excellence and artistic merit in modern craftsmanship. Aiming to acknowledge the importance of craft in today’s culture and recognise artisans whose talent, vision and will to innovate will set a standard for the future, LOEWE Creative Director Jonathan Anderson conceived the initiative inspired by LOEWE’s beginnings as a craft cooperative in 1846. ‘Craft is the essence of LOEWE. As a house, we are about craft in the purest sense of the word. That is where our modernity lies, and it will always be relevant,’ Anderson has stated.

British ceramist Jennifer Lee was selected as the winner of the 2018 edition among 30 finalists from close to 2,000 submissions representing over 80 countries on five continents.
