Henry Rothschild Ceramic Bursary of £5000

Entered 13 June 2014

Deadline for applications is 1 September 2014. 

Applications are now invited for the Henry Rothschild Ceramics Bursary, in partnership with Northumbria University

The Bursary of £5,000 will be awarded to an emerging ceramic artist.

The aim of the award is to give an artist the opportunity to develop their practice in ways in which they would not otherwise have the time or resources to do, enabling them to pursue new creative directions and ways of working.

Artists will be chosen by an independent selection panel and must be UK resident and have graduated or set up their practice for a minimum of 3 years.

The Henry Rothschild Study Centre at the Shipley Art Gallery displays over 200 ceramics from the personal collection of Henry Rothschild, founder of the Primavera gallery in London.

The richness and breadth of this fantastic collection is demonstrated in works by Lucie Rie, Bernard Leach, Ewen Henderson, Gordon Baldwin and Gillian Lowndes. Henry was a passionate supporter of emerging artists whose work he believed in and the ceramics bursary continues in this spirit.
