The ICS Artist-in-residence program allows artists to work in the context of a different country and culture. The Artist in Residence Programme provides artists with the space to create new works, experiment with innovative ideas and research new and different ways of making. Artists are encouraged to explore all our facilities to open up new possibilities and directions for the contemporary ceramicist. The program is open to all artists who wish to work independently on their own projects. Artists may use the residency to accomplish a specific project or to work in a creative and supportive atmosphere alongside other international ceramic artists. The International Ceramics Studio provides ceramic artists and potters with opportunities to experiment and explore new directions in their work. Resident artists are able to exchange ideas and experiences through presentations and informal discussion.
