Ceramics Ireland Awards

Ceramics Ireland provide several awards each year. They are all independently selected see below for more details

Travel Bursary

The travel bursary is a joint initiative between Scarva Pottery Supplies and Ceramics Ireland. The award is selected by an independent selector (external to the Ceramics Ireland committee). The award is € 500, artists have to write and article on return from their travels for the magazine.

2013 Travel bursary deadline passed in August and we received no applications so the award will not take place this year.

2012 Travel bursary was awarded to Evelina Wojtowicz who features in Issue 30 of the magazine.
