Call for entry: Medalta International Cup Show

If you've ever met me, you'll know that I speak very highly of the Medalta Artist in Residence program. These are some amazing folks doing great stuff and its so nice to see an internationally recognized residency program so close to my home. So of course I jump at any opportunity to work with them and thus I am beyond excited to announce the first ever Medalta International Cup Show. How thrilling to see an international cup show taking place in Canada.

Show us your mugs (or cups, yunomis, steins, etc) and be a part of Medalta’s first annual International Cup Show!

This show – August 23 to September 28 - is being juried by (yours truly!) Musing About Mud blogger and Canadian ceramic artist, Carole Epp.

The submission deadline is Thursday, May 30 so if you’re interested, have a look at the eligibility requirements, important dates and other information on this page and fill out the handy-dandy form (along with payment). Thanks for your interest and good luck!

Carole Epp is likely best known for her work on Musing About Mud, (www.musingaboutmud.blogspot.com) an online resource of ceramic related content. She is a graduate of the Australian National University, produces two distinct lines of functional and sculptural ceramics, exhibits internationally, and at the end of the day is a mother to two charming young boys.

The exhibition is open to all international artists. Identify yourself as a student to be entered into the right competition. Work can be either functional or sculptural so long as it addresses the idea of “the cup”. Please submit only original work that has been completed in the last two years. All work must use at least 50% fired clay as the primary medium.
Work must not exceed 2 feet in width.
All work must be properly prepared for exhibition, be durable enough to survive shipping and display, and come with exhibition/assemblage instructions if applicable. Medalta reserves the right to reject any work that is not suitably prepared for exhibition or that differs from the original submission.
Medalta reserves the right to use images and photographs of accepted works for the purposes of promotional materials, including postcards, calendars, local media as well as online promotion.
All entries must be for sale, (priced in Canadian Dollars).
