The aim of the ceramic commissions project, part of the wider Whitegold and Austell Project is to bring public engagement to visually deprived areas of the town to build pride and confidence in our built environment.
Established and emerging artists from all parts of the world have been invited to respond to 4 public art installations briefs to be installed in St Austell town centre. A shortlist of artists were invited to St Austell for a tour of the region’s clay country before submitting a statement of intent that draws on the culture of the St Austell area. The jury made up of local residents and business owners selected the artists from the shortlist as final winners to develop their proposal for completion in time for the 2020 Whitegold Festival.
The final artists are – David Mach, Sandy Brown, Jenny Beavan, Marion Brandis and Susan Elliot.
