John Paxie second-year Masters student in ceramics at Otago Polytechnic School of Art who has had a work accepted for the Mino competition this year. Anyone else out there?
Corrina Hoseason (recent Unitec graduate) who has been accepted into the European Ceramic Work Centre (EKWC) in Den Bosch, Netherlands for a ‘Young Participants’ residency. To qualify one has to be graduated from an academic course in ceramics over the past two years and prepared to stay for three months to develop work with the assistance of their expert technical staff and unsurpassed facilities. With an alumni list including names such as Tony Crag, Anish Kapoor and Antony Gormley as well as most of the top level European and American ceramists, there is no telling who might occupy the next-door studio.
Lauren Winstone who graduated with MFA (hons) from Elam last year with a submission in ceramic (!) and who has recently returned from Guldagergaard Ceramic Centre in Denmark where she has been attending one of their ‘Recent Graduates’ sessions, held during the European winter, working alongside other recent graduates from art schools in Europe and the USA. This residency programme encourages visits by curators and museum personnel from several areas of Europe to the final exhibition as well as setting up the graduates with an international network.
