All Fired Up

We are delighted to announce our new ceramics commission 'All Fired Up' has been awarded to two starter studio makers here at Yorkshire Artspace. Meghan Downs and Hannah Staniforth are already busy with the commission, which is a partnership between Yorkshire Artspace, South Yorkshire Housing Association (SYHA), Museums Sheffield and Potclays Limited. Each artist is required to make two ceramic pieces: one will enter Museums Sheffield permanent collection and be displayed at Millenium Galleries, and one will enter a SYHA residential setting for supported living. The ceramicware will either take the form of functional or decorative pieces and will be made in response to the setting. We are looking forward to the pieces developing and to seeing the completed works.

Our ceramic Starter Studio programme is now open to applications with a closing deadline of 10th April 2017. Find out more here.
