Announcing Winners of 2011 Potters Council Juried Show


Potters Council is thrilled to announce the members chosen to participate in the 2011 Juried Exhibition, “The Shoulders We Stand On”. The show is being held in conjunction with the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) conference.

“The Shoulders We Stand On”
The 2011 Potters Council members show in Tampa, Florida will pay tribute to our roots, the significant influences that shape us and guide our work in clay. We are creative heirs standing on the shoulders of giants. We cannot help but reference and renew their ideas in our own work. These distinctive inspirations become the touchstones of our best original efforts.


Bill Jones was the juror. He is the editor of Pottery Making Illustrated magazine, as well as a practicing ceramic artist. Bill has a broad knowledge of ceramics and wide experience in the field. His exposure to all levels of artists and pottery gives him a uniquely qualified perspective on content and inspiration.
