FOREWORD I’m honoured to be introducing the 2016 biennial North Queensland Ceramic Awards, which has been developed and delivered by the North Queensland Potters Association Inc. (NQPA) in collaboration with Pinnacles Gallery, Townsville City Council. After a brief hiatus, it is heart-warming to see the return of this important exhibition. The North Queensland Ceramic Awards have a rich history and indeed this is the first instalment of the Awards since the major curated exhibition Diversity in Clay (Pinnacles Gallery, 2013) provided an insight into the importance of this muchloved Townsville event. Ceramic competitions have been organised by the NQPA since 1973, and works acquired from these competitions form the major part of the City of Townsville Art Collection’s impressive ceramic sub-collection. Knowing these works intimately, I am left in little doubt that the city’s ceramic holdings place it amongst

the best public ceramic collections in the country, in no small part due to the breadth of works acquired from this competition over the years. With the establishment of Perc Tucker Regional Gallery in 1981, the community has been provided with regular access to these works via rotational Vault and Showcase exhibitions, and major curated shows such as Diversity in Clay. The 2016 biennial North Queensland Ceramic Awards marks the 40th ceramic competition held in Townsville, just four short years after NQPA marked its own 40th Anniversary. Throughout these 40 exhibitions, the intent has remained the same; to increase public exposure to a high standard of pottery from around the nation. Not only has the competition been successful in attracting entries from wellknown potters showing their current work, but it has also tried to provide a showcase for emerging ceramic artists.

Further, it has allowed NQPA and the broader Townsville community to engage with respected artists and arts administrators in the ceramic arts field who have been invited to undertake the unenviable task of judging a winning work. This year’s judge, Mr Damon Moon, is a renowned ceramicist and Creative Director of the innovative Ceramics Studio at JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design, and his participation certainly continues this proud tradition of securing esteemed judges.

Of course, the competition would not be possible without our sponsors; thanks must go to Scott Brickworks, Loloma Jewellers, Fourex Clothing, and the Rainford Family for their support, and particularly to major sponsor Townsville City Council. This 2016 competition has seen the major prize on offer rise to $10,000, a move which has certainly resulted in record numbers of entries, all of which were of a very high quality and made the task of selecting finalists very difficult.

I wish to thank all of those who have contributed to delivering the 2016 biennial North Queensland Ceramic Awards, particularly those members of the NQPA and staff of Pinnacles Gallery, Townsville City Council who have worked towards attracting and processing entries, designing this beautiful publication and installing the exhibition.

Finally, I wish to thank all of the artists who have taken an interest in the competition and given their time to create a work and submit an entry. My congratulations to those who were selected for display in this fine exhibition, which I trust will bring much joy to the people of Townsville. Wendy Bainbridge President North Queensland Potters Association Inc.
