It is with considerable pleasure that Lopdell House Gallery, in association with the Portage Trust, present the Portage Ceramic Awards 2003. The award is now in its third year and is fast becoming a highlight of the annual arts calendar. This year's judge, Australian ceramicist Julie Bartholomew, is a widely known and esteemed practitioner and academic, who aims to fuse ceramic tradition with new technologies, generating an ever evolving voice to ceramic practice.
