Fresh is a curated survey exhibition of new ceramic work by recent graduates from UK Higher Education programmes. Organised by the British Ceramics Biennial BCB and the National Association of Ceramics in Higher Education (NACHE). 

Graduates (BA, MA) of UK higher education universities and colleges who graduated in 2014 or 2015 are invited to apply for the BCB FRESH 2015 – a prestigious exhibition that celebrates the emerging talent in contemporary British ceramics, in the context of its long history in Stoke-on-Trent.

The acclaimed FRESH show will be one of the main exhibitions at the fourth British Ceramics Biennial, taking place in the Original Spode Fatcory site in Stoke-on-Trent, from 26 September to 8 November 2015.

Our aim is for FRESH to:

  • Promote the high quality work of graduates to a professional and public audience through a combination of visitors to the show, symposium, journal articles and reviews.
  • Represent the range of practice of graduates within the field, which is anticipated to include work from across the ceramic spectrum: studio pottery, tableware and industrial design, figurative and abstract sculpture and installation.
  • Provide an invaluable launch pad for the exhibitors as they embark on their professional careers.
  • Award commendations for three exhibitors demonstrating talent and professional potential in the disciplines of craft, design and fine art.
