Cancellation of National Pottery Competition 2021

 

It is with great regret that the Port Hacking Potters Group announces the cancellation of the proposed 2021 National Pottery Competition which was to have been held at the Hazelhurst Arts Centre, Broadhurst Gallery in Gymea in August.

This decision has been made due to the continuing uncertainty as to when the gallery might re-open from the current Covid restrictions in Sydney.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their willingness to support us in these uncertain times and apologize to them for needing to take this decision. We thank the Hazelhurst Arts Centre for their support in working through this decision.

Those who have already sent their entries to us will be contacted shortly.

In 1986 members of Port Hacking Potters arranged to visited her at the Pastoral Gallery outside Canberra.  Just prior to the visit a fire burned down the gallery.  To save disappointment Hiroe, in an act of amazing generosity, went ahead with a demonstration of her much admired techniques.
