When respected South Australian
artist Gerry Wedd was handed
images of the 32 submissions for the
South Australian Ceramics Award 2010, he
had no idea who had created each work.
"There were no names attached to any of
the slides," he says. "I had to cull the 32-odd
entries down to 24 and when I saw the names
of the artists who had made the pieces, there
were a few surprises."
Wedd, a former finalist in the award whose
work was acquired by the South Australian
Art Gallery, will judge the winner tonight at
the Adelaide Central Gallery.
"I m yet to see any of the entries in the
flesh -- just flat images of them on slides -- so
it s pretty hard to say which one will win.
"There are probably a handful of potential
winners, but I could easily pick a different
one up on Friday and think: Wow! At the
same time, though, a piece I thought would be
up there might work better as a flat image.
"Touch has a lot to do with it. I ll really
have to wait until I can walk around and
handle the work.
"I m drawn to things I wish I had made
myself; I think it fills a gap of some sort."
Wedd teaches the occasional semester
in ceramics at the University of South
Australia and likens judging to assessing a
student s work.
He says choosing a winner will be "a
"There is so much variety in this
competition ... it s a bit like comparing
apples to oranges. There s everything from
Japanese-influenced pottery to a small-scale
installation. Quiet pieces, loud pieces --
there s a huge stylistic variation."
While winning an award such as the SA
Ceramics Award can boost a CV, Wedd says
the real gift is the recognition and exposure
the winning artist will receive.
"The award is very well-respected within
the Australian ceramics community, but by
winning it you make a wide audience aware
of your work.
"You ll end up in a national publication,
which could then lead to an international
"The Art Gallery of South Australia
purchases some pieces from the competition,
so your work would be on show in front of
countless curators -- it s a big deal."
