Deadline for design submissions: 24 February

Mill Cove Galleries and Irish Ceramics are providing 10 artists with the opportunity to create unique ceramic works. Each artist will be commissioned to create 20-40 ceramic pieces. The amount of pieces will be decided by the galleries – minimum 10 and maximum 40 at the first stage. The maximum commission is €1,350 for 40 pieces.

Conditions of the Commission
This commission is open to anyone working in clay in Ireland (north or south).
The work must be original and of a high standard, both in presentation and content. Work that is below gallery standard in quality, finish and presentation cannot be acquired by the gallery.
Commissions should not have been previously exhibited and will be exclusive to the galleries for the period of the commission. Commissioned work that is exhibited in other venues in Ireland will forfeit your commission. The copyright will remain with the artist.
