Judge’s Tour

The judge’s tour is always a highlight of the Portage Ceramic Awards opening festivities. Ingrid Murphy has, herself, just been shortlisted for an art prize – the British Ceramics Biennial Award. Her extensive knowledge of ceramic traditions as well as new and emerging techniques bring a unique perspective to her selection process, which she will explain as she guides us through the exhibition in conversation with this year’s award winners.

Ingrid Murphy: Augmenting Objects and Interactive Artefacts 

Ingrid introduces her own interactive objects and collaborative projects, and gives a demonstration in 3D Scanning and Augmenting Reality (for technophobes). This is a unique chance to meet this year's Portage judge and gain insights on how new technologies are being used in contemporary ceramics practice.
