Irish Contemporary Ceramics Exhibition: 21 Sep 2012 – 11 Nov 2012

The Barony Centre will host the first showing in Scotland of the Irish Contemporary Ceramic Awards 2012 exhibition, which will be one of the largest exhibitions of Irish Ceramic Artists outside of Ireland.   We are delighted to continue the long tradition of cultural exchange between our two countries.

John Goode, a ceramic collector for over 30 years, inaugurated the Irish Contemporary Ceramic Awards (ICCA) in 2008. This annual adjudicated exhibition raises the profile and exposure to the wonderful diversity and skill in the medium. The ICCA has established a number of awards for innovation, decoration and distinction and more importantly a new and larger audience for this work. The ICCA are open to anyone working in clay. Mill Cove Gallery also provides awards at Sculpture in Context, national Botanic Gardens, Dublin and the Ceramics Ireland exhibitions.

From transporting water to storing foods to its use in ceremonies and celebrations, humans have relied on potters and their craft.  Pottery, however, does n
