Our work Vitrify 2013
The Alcorso Foundation congratulate Vitrify’s 2013 winner Angela Valamanesh and finalists
The Alcorso Foundation’s national ceramic award, Vitrify
The Vitrify Alcorso Ceramic Award is a $10,000 annual prize for ceramic art. Established in 2011, the award is open to artists nationally and is non-acquisitive.
Four artists are selected from the entries received to develop work for a group exhibition of ceramic art at a commercial gallery. From these four artists, one is selected to receive the prize money. Selection of finalists and the judging of the award is made by a panel of expert judges.
Vitrify is presented by the Alcorso Foundation, a not-for profit cultural organisation with its home in Tasmania.
Vitrify 2013 was hosted by the Bett Gallery, North Hobart.
Judges for the 2013 award, David Handley, founding director of Sculpture by the Sea; Peter Timms, author, arts editor and curator, and highly respected ceramist Neville French selected this year’s four finalists Janetta Kerr-Grant, Keiko Matsui, Jane Sawyer, and Angela Valamanesh.
