2019 Finalists Announced!

It is with great excitement that we announced the 41 works selected as our Finalists from 128 entries we received from artists from all over Australia.

The prestigious 2019 Clunes Ceramic Award saw a wonderful array of art prices entered and our judges have again been astonished by the quality of entries. The standard was extremely high and selecting our shortlist this year was difficult. Our judges Chirs Weaver, Neville French and Mary Rasmussen unanimously agreed on 41 works to be exhibited for the award. All the entries were carefully considered in regard to the criteria for excellence; concept and use of materials.
