The acclaimed FRESH show will be one of the main exhibitions at the sixth British Ceramics Biennial, taking place in Stoke-on-Trent from 7 September to 13 October 2019.

Artists are invited to apply fot the BCB FRESH 2019  - a high profile exhibition that celebrates and promotes the emerging talent in contemporary British Ceramics, in the context of its long history in Stoke-On-Trent.

It showcases the diverse cross-section of ideas and trends currently explored within clay and ceramics practice and offers opportunities for emerging artists to forge new networks both nationally and internationally as they launch their professional careers.’
