Call For Entries: 2012 Potters Council Juried Show

Recommended Posts

Potters Council 2012 Exhibition: “The Chromatic Edge†Once again, we celebrate the community of our council with a show of members’ work in conjunction with National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts Conference (NCECA) in 2012.


The name of the show is “The Chromatic Edge“.


For the third annual members juried competition, Potters Council is seeking entries with an emphasis on the impact of color. The majority of the composition should be ceramic with the focus on color. Consider the full spectrum.


Techniques and materials may include glazes, washes, oxides, engobes, slips, stains, underglazes, overglazes, colored clays, china paints, inclusions, exclusions, lusters, pre and post firing additions and any variations.


The exhibition will be concurrently shown during NCECA Conference in Seattle in 2012, and will showcase the quality work made by the members of the Potters Council, an international organization with members all over the world.


The Chromatic Edge addresses not the outer bounds of our work, but some of the “edges†that can occur within it. In ceramics, form is often seen as paramount, and the visual surface may often become subordinate. However, no form can excel without surface, and color is one of its most evident properties. The edges and contacts between colors, and between surface and clay - can re-compose a work of art, and change our perception of the most humble of pieces. Color can generate emotion, create meaning single-handedly, or change what we think we understand. Color gives the “edge†to ceramics that use it well.


In this exhibition, we propose to showcase work that uses color in thoughtful, subtle, bold, or innovative ways. We are challenging our members to examine and explore the use of color in their work. It will be visually dramatic, thought-provoking, and bring color in from the periphery of our endeavor right to the center.
