Cardiff School of Art and Design Ceramics Students Host Auction of Internationally Renowned Artists’ Work

​17/02/2017

Ceramic students at Cardiff School of Art and Design are hosting an auction of contemporary art from 5pm on Tuesday 21st February to raise money for their summer show.

Artists, ceramicists and art fans are invited to Cardiff School of Art and Design in Llandaff to network with fellow art fans, observe the special collection and purchase one-of-a-kind artworks.

Artworks up for auction on the night have been donated generously by internationally renowned ceramicists from across the UK.

The collection includes pieces from the judges and contestants of The Great Pottery Throw Down BBC TV series.

Works by the Walter Keeler, Kate Malone and Keith Brymer Jones and a signed book by Edmund de Waal will also be up for auction on the night.

The artists featured at the auction have also supported the students in their learning, as well as their donations. Students have visited artist Walter Keeler at his home in Monmouthshire and attended a demonstration where he donated a piece for the auction.

They have also worked with artist Jeremy Steward at Wobage Workshops in Herefordshire and the students have completed work experience placements with several of the artists, including Jen Hamilton and Winchcombe Pottery in Gloucestershire.

The auction will help raise money for CSAD's annual summer degree show held in May and funds raised will cover the costs of holding the event and producing professional catalogues, all whilst giving the graduates an insight into the world of ceramic art.

The summer event will be a culmination of the Ceramics students' degree work and an opportunity for them to showcase their talent to family, friends, professionals and the public.

Charlotte Manser, one of the event organisers said: "We are excited to host this unique event at Cardiff School of Art and Design. The collection of artworks available provides a rare opportunity to view and purchase a wide variety of exquisite handmade artefacts.

"Join us for what is will be an exciting one-off event and help celebrate and support the work of our students and renowned ceramicists from the art world."
