This opportunity is ONLY open to members of the Northern Potters Association (NPA). Cupola invites submissions which respond to the title of the exhibition 'Vessel'. We are encouraging a broad interpretation of the title. Many people are unaware of the vast range of styles, techniques and inspiration behind contemporary ceramics today. We wish to highlight the vast differences individual potters bring to their work.
