The 2019 Waiclay National Ceramics Award exhibition presents exciting ceramic pieces from all over New Zealand.

Waiclay was established in 2001 with the first National Ceramic Conference, now held annually, in the Waikato. Alongside this convention an exhibition of selected works, held at Waikato Museum, showcases the current work of ceramic artists throughout New Zealand.

Over the years this exhibition has developed national renown, with ceramic artists participating each year for a Premier Award of $3,000, Merit Awards, and the Bruce Dehnert Residency Travel Award of $1000.

This year's guest selector is Kasumi Ueba, from Japan, who boasts an international reputation, and whose work will be featured in a related ArtsPost exhibition, Taste of Japan, 1 November-2 December.

Waikato Museum is proud to support the 2019 Waiclay National Ceramics Award, and to promote excellence in claywork.
