Plates to go on show

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Lopdell House Gallery is bring­ing back the an­nual Crown Lynn de­sign com­pe­ti­tion to ex­hibit home­grown ce­ramic de­signs.

The com­pe­ti­tion is a chance for de­sign­ers to see their work turned into ce­ramic table­ware.

Dur­ing The Portage Ce­ramic Awards at Silo Park there will be a ‘plate sta­tion’ set up where vis­i­tors can cre­ate their own ce­ramic plate de­signs and have them dis­played along the in­ner walls of a silo.

Fi­nal­ists will be short­listed by a judg­ing panel, which in­cludes de­sign his­to­rian Michael Smythe and the fi­nal win­ners se­lected by three times Crown Lynn com­pe­ti­tion win­ner turned Crown Lynn de­signer Mark Clev­er­ley.

The two win­ning de­signs will be an­noun- ced on Novem­ber 21 via the Lopdell House Gallery web­site and Face­book with each win­ner re­ceiv­ing a limited edi­tion set of ce­ramic plates bear­ing their de­sign.

De­sign tem­plates are also avail­able at lopdell. org.nz and at Master­works Gallery and The Poi Room as a take home flyer.

The com­pe­ti­tion runs from Fri­day to Novem­ber 10.
