CPA Council Elections 2018: Results: 3 New members elected
The three new Council Members of the CPA are Wendy Lawrence, Stephen Parry (studiopottery.co.uk Selected member) and Paul Wearing. Congratulations to all three! Here are their pictures and an extract from their election statements.
Wendy Lawrence says: “Ceramic makers have always had a real sense of community – more so than any other craft medium – as far as I’m aware: clay connects us. It is this ceramics community through the CPA, nationally and internationally that needs to be encouraged, nurtured and celebrated.”
Stephen Parry says: “After the destruction of ceramic education, the CPA more than ever, has a huge role to play in maintaining and promoting a high standard of ceramics in this country. As well as encouraging and helping younger makers start their careers.”
Paul Wearing says: “The CPA is currently well positioned to resource, support and promote studio ceramics within venues and events for showcasing and selling work, the sharing of information and profile raising via print and online publications and partnership working.”
