POTTERS and sculptors are invited to submit entries to the 2018 Stanthorpe Agricultural Show's Pottery and Clay section by Sunday, January 28 for exhibition during the show.

"Prizes include $100 for the Most Outstanding Exhibit, $30 for the Judge's Choice and, for the winner of the Youth Section, the Glenys Fletcher Memorial Prize,” Chief Steward Valerie Insall said.

"Entry fees per item are $1 for adults and 50 cents for children. Entries must be taken to the showgrounds Tea Pavilion on Sunday, January 28 between 10am and 12pm. If this time is not suitable, artists can contact stewards for assistance,” Ms Insall said.

Pottery and Clay judge Robert Cullen, who has over 15 years' experience in the art form, is the current President of the Warwick Potters, and Vice President of Ceramic Arts Queensland. Exhibits can be viewed on Friday between noon and 2pm and visitors can watch pots being made.

The Stanthorpe Pottery Club continues its long-standing sponsorship of the show's Pottery and Clay section. The club offers sculpting, wheel-throwing, glazing and kilns for firing, and holds regular workshops catering to all skill levels.

The workshop and gallery shop are open to the public every Sunday from 10am to 1pm in Eduardo Verri Park on Wallangarra Road, and new members are welcome.

Other sponsors of the 2018 Stanthorpe Agricultural Show's Pottery and Clay section include Pottery Supplies Brisbane, local sculptor Maggie Brockie, St Joseph's School and Market in the Mountains.
