Congratulations to Ceramicist, Daniel Skeffington, who has been awarded the ACT Canberra Potters, Artist Residency, for April/May 2021.
The Artist in Residence program has been a long-running initiative to provide an opportunity for emerging and established artists to explore and further develop their art practice in a wholly supported and nurturing, purpose-designed environment. Artists are encouraged to move beyond their existing art practice to interrogate their existing work or to create a completely new body of work.
Daniel Skeffington intends to use his residency to explore new forms, new glazes and new techniques and he readily admits that it will be challenging to achieve everything he plans to make in the time available.
I made a decision to embrace the challenge said Skeffington. In these questioning social norms times, I’m interested in tolerance. If there were more celebration of our similarities and more embrace of our differences there might be more moments of pleasure.
We look forward to exhibiting Daniels new works completed during his residency.view Artist profile and available works
