2012 Emerging Ceramic Artist People’s Choice Contest: Voting Has Closed – Winner Announcement: May 16!

After several rounds of narrowing down, revisiting, heated debate, and in-depth discussion, the editors of Ceramics Monthly chose fourteen deserving artists for the 2012 Emerging Artists issue. And today, I am presenting them to you. All of these talented artists have been pursuing a career in studio ceramics for ten years or less, and their work stands at the forefront of what is to come in our field.

 

Now it’s your turn to have a say by casting your vote in the “Emerging Artist People’s Choice Contest,” graciously sponsored by Bailey Pottery Equipment & Ceramic Supplies! The winner will receive a $500 gift certificate to be used at www.baileypottery.com.

 

So check out the artists and their work below and cast your vote through the link at the bottom of this page (or on the individual artist’s pages)! The voting will be open through Wednesday, May 9 and we’ll announce the winner on Wednesday, May 16.

    Christopher Melia is my favorite. He has done his research and hard work to accomplish his deliciously smooth surfaces. I know what hard work all the preparation for such firings has taken and his work is tops.

    Chandra Dubose makes the most usable and whimsical pottery. Her forms and designs are unique. They make me smile while I’m ooohing and aaaahing.
