There’s a call for entry out now for the Craft Council Gallery’s spring show. Deadline for entries is April 26th.
“The Craft Council Gallery invites you to create works reflecting on the theme of BLUE. Explore the range of water’s colour, its reflective qualities and/or the ecology and politics of water. Functional, decorative, conceptual, fine and funky works will be chosen on the basis of excellence in technique, design and use of materials as well as connection to the theme.”
I’ve been waffling back and forth about what to make. Right now, it’s the “ecology” option that’s playing around in my brain. I’ve been thinking of ways to make giant bowls, possibly with pedestals, inspired by sea urchins and jellyfish and tentacley things. Possibly porcelain. Very probably not actually blue in colour, so possibly not fitting in with the rest of the submissions for this particular show, but I’d still like to try my hand at some of these.
