Carbondale Clay National XIII: Out of the Mold is currently accepting applications. The theme for the Clay National is “Out of the Mold”. The concept of this juried exhibition is to investigate what is happening currently in ceramic art. Slip casting, press molding, or sprigging; plaster molds, bisque molds, or just clay pressed onto an object. These are all techniques requiring molds. How are artists finding new ideas and ways of working through the use of molds? Pottery, sculpture, wall tile, or mix media work will be considered. Carbondale Clay National XIII will be juried by Andrea and John Gill, both internationally recognized ceramic artists.
