  • Thanks for the heads up Jeff! Appreciated. :]

  • sounds superfun. i’m assuming this is open to entries from all over the world? there was nothing specified on the entry form.

    • We have a focus on local and Canadian talent, but since 2003 we have been showcasing a strong contingent of international artists. The last show had artists of varying disciplines from every corner of the planet. Apply now. Thanks Jeff!

Since 2001 Korean artist Yeesookyung has taken these porcelain fragments, creating beautiful, imperfect sculptures by fusing them with gold leaf in the Japanese tradition of kintsugi.
