Proposal Summary [From the NCC Website]: “Zoë Powell has been exploring local materials, which are rough and richly saturated with iron to create voluminous and elegant forms. She desires support to explore a pristine clay body, porcelain, which she believes may “showcase the inherent grace of my forms, undisturbed by color.” The jurors were equally excited by the forms Powell presented and very curious about the contrast and balance her project will result in as she brings porcelain into conversation with wild clay.”

Selected Artists: Zoë Powell, Erin Paradis, Lynn Wadsworth

Selection Panel: Jeff Schmuki, Armando Ramos, Malcolm Mobutu Smith
