Deadline extended into January!

2010 Cone Box Show retrospective

Thanks to everyone for their patience.  We’ve been experiencing some technical glitches with online entry and payment methods, which has kept us from getting the word out about the show.  We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to enter, so we have decided to extend the deadline to January 19th (suggested US Postmark date), with the absolute deadline for work to be here at Bracker’s Good Earth Clays on January 24th.  Please help us  spread the word!

The 2018 Cone Box Show Juror will be Pete Pinnell!

We are extremely thrilled to announce that Pete Pinnell will be the Juror of the 2018 Cone Box Show!  Pinnell is a potter, a writer, a professor, a speaker and an historian.  He has exhibited his own work internationally and has been a juror of multiple shows across the country.  Pinnell has written for Ceramics: Art & Perception, Ceramics Monthly, Clay Times, and Purple Sand (A Taiwanese Ceramics Journal).  He has given several presentations at NCECA, all of which have been among the most popular at that year’s conference and continue to be the most watched videos on the NCECA YouTube Channel.

The Cone Box Show Entry form will be available in early October.  Be sure to check back soon!
