Henry Rothschild Memorial Ceramics Bursary
The 5th and final Henry Rothschild Bursary will be awarded in 2023.
About the bursary
The Henry Rothschild Study Centre at the Shipley Art Gallery displays over 200 ceramics from the personal collection of Henry Rothschild, founder of the Primavera gallery in London.
The richness and breadth of this fantastic collection is demonstrated in works by Lucie Rie, Bernard Leach, Ewen Henderson, Gordon Baldwin and Gillian Lowndes. Henry was a passionate supporter of emerging artists whose work he believed in and the ceramics bursary continues in this spirit.
The 5th Rothschild Bursary will be awarded in 2023 where £5,000 will be awarded to an emerging ceramic artist. The deadline for applications is 30 September 2023, with interviews for those short-listed to take place in November.
The aim of the award is to give an artist the opportunity to develop their practice in ways in which they would not otherwise have the time or resources to do, enabling them to pursue new creative directions and ways of working. The award winner will have two years to complete the work funded by the Bursary.
The 5th Rothschild Bursary will be awarded in 2023. The deadline for applications is 30 September 2023. Apply on the Henry Rothschild website.
The Henry Rothschild Ceramics Bursary is part of a partnership between Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums and Northumbria University.
