Young Masters presents Jo Taylor, Lucille Lewin and Tessa Eastman at The Arts Club
The Arts Club hosts Young Masters ceramicists Jo Taylor, Lucille Lewin and Tessa Eastman. In conversation with the Crafts Council’s Daniella Wells and collector and curator Preston Fitzgerald, these three contemporary makers discuss their practices and offer an insight into their processes of making.
The discussion will be recorded as a podcast by After Nyne Magazine, the official media partner of Young Masters.
In 2009, Cynthia Corbett launched the Young Masters Art Prize, a not-for-profit initiative that gives a platform to both emerging and established artists who pay homage to the skill and innovation of the Old Masters and art of the past. The 2014 edition saw the launch of the first Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize for artists working in ceramics. Participating artists show an exceptional command of the medium of ceramics alongside an awareness of the heritage of ceramic craft. For the first time in 2017, the Young Masters Emerging Woman Art Prize was launched to profile and reward emerging female artists.
The second edition of the Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize took place in 2017. An esteemed panel of judges, including Janice Blackburn, former Curator of Arts and Crafts at Sotheby’s, collector and curator Preston Fitzgerald, collector and philanthropist Maylis Grand and the Crafts Council’s Daniella Wells, awarded Lucille Lewin as the 2017 winner.
This event runs alongside a specially curated Young Masters ceramics exhibition at The Cynthia Corbett Gallery.
