Emerging Artist 2013 People’s Choice Contest

After several rounds of narrowing down, revisiting, heated debate, and in-depth discussion, even fisticuffs, the editors of Ceramics Monthly chose thirteen deserving artists for the 2013 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 BigCeramicStore.com! The winner will receive a $500 gift certificate to be used at www.bigceramicstore.com.

  • It is not possible to chose a “best”, for each is best. It is not possible to choose a “favorite”, for many of these call to my heart and evoke happy response. Were we privy to other criteria, such as artist need, we could make better response in the voting. But the nature of competition as set up in the world is that one takes the winning laurel and the others the disappointment. Thank you for showing us such wonderful work. And to the artists, thank you. Well done all.

  • Starz – to vote, click on the orange bar “Vote for your favorite Emerging Artist here!” A pop-up list appears for your vote.

  • Yes – Its a bit like trying to compare apples with pears. The wonderful zen tea bowl is an excellent example of that form but oh so different from other excellent work.
    These need to be categorised if possible so that judging criteria
    can be more fairly applied.

  • Oh, Lord. Can’t I vote for 4? (Tom, Jim, Kenyon and Sebastian) Each is doing something beautiful, new, interesting and desirable (both to own and to attempt the techniques yourself). Ok, I will try to pick, but at least this way I give my kudos to all of my favorites.

  • Oh this is just not fair – you’ve got three of my very favorite ceramics people on this list. Three! Last year I’d didnt know anyone on the list, and this year I could easily vote for at least 5 of these potters based on what I know of them before I read the bios.

  • My vote goes to Ann Van Hoey.

    Her work reminds me of great directors who are auteur, such as Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock and Pedro Almodovar. Once you have a glimpse of her work, right away you know it’s an Ann Van Hoey. She brought a new form and technique to the ceramic bible.
