Calling all Designers: Clay Competition with a Cash Prize

Hope your Monday is off to an amazing start. Before the day gets away from me, I wanted to tell you about a clay competition that I recently found out about that sounds like an amazing opportunity to not only get you some extra exposure but also to make you some extra cashola!

It’s being hosted by Red Clay and it just kicked off last week. The deadline is actually the end of this week, so you’ll have to jump on this opportunity quickly. Here are the details…

Your design. Your story.

Red Clay challenges you to use CLAY to embody the warmth and timeless memories shaped by a GATHERING of those you love most.

The Design Challenge: A GATHERING

At home, you gather your nearest and dearest and a story of fond friendships and familial bonds is crafted. Around the table or by the fireplace, these stories are created and shared, not mass-produced. Similarly, Clay–a simple combination of earth and water–when fired, can be molded into a homes showpiece or family heirloom. An elegant bud vase graces a table with sentimental charm. A serving bowl displays beauty and function. A decorative platter can be the centerpiece of laughter and celebration. Life is too short to be sur- rounded by anything short of beautiful. A beautiful object can be an essential part of your personal history; the design of which should be enduring and the craft, authentic. A Gathering of loved ones not only sustains, but nourishes the life and story of your home and those who live in it.

The Nitty Gritty DETAILS:

There is simple beauty in perfecting the form. Designers may choose to design a ceramic Vase, Bowl or Plate in one of 5 low-fire glazes from our color palette. The Red Clay community will choose 3 winners, one from each form category. Red Clay is excited to announce one additional design will be chosen as an “Editors Choice” piece that will be a juried selection curated by Eric Scollon and Robby Abrams of the UC Berkeley Art Studio. Each winner will be awarded $500 and more importantly build their portfolio through national exposure via blogs, Red Clay ads, newsletters and online publications.

DEADLINE: Submissions are being accepted on Red Clays website from July 11th until July 22nd.

Get all the details and submit your designs on the Red Clay competition page.
