Student celebrates ceramic success
Monday 10th of December 2012
Former Batley School of Art degree student, Frances Lee is celebrating being shortlisted as a finalist for the Taiwan Ceramics Biennale 2012.
Frances, 60 from Brighouse graduated from the School of Art, part of Kirklees College, in July 2012 with a BA (Honours) Top-up degree in Applied Arts. As part of their final year, students on the degree course are required to enter an exhibition or a competition, Frances chose the biennale, an international competition for ceramicists organised by the Yingge Ceramics Museum.
The biennale aims to introduce the people of Taiwan to the international contemporary ceramic art and allow international artists to learn more about Taiwanese ceramic art culture.
A collection of Frances’s ceramic plates were selected from the exhibition and she was invited to Taiwan in the summer to see her work on display.
Mark Clough, applied arts award leader said, “I’m very proud of Frances. It’s not every day a Kirklees student achieves at an international level. The finalists were wined, dined, banqueted and generally treated like stars. I wish Frances all the best in the future, I’m sure she will continue her success.”
