Call for Entry: Peep Show 2016

Peep hole plugs we mean! Have you visited the Peep Show located inside Skutt Kiln’s booth at NCECA? It’s one of my favorite things seek out during NCECA and 2016 was no different. I cannot wait to see the winners for 2017 in Portland1

Wait. What? You don’t know about the Skutt Peep Show? Check the NCECA Program Guide for information on where the 2017 Skutt Peep Show will be displayed.

At its heart The Peep Show is a brilliant scheme set in motion by Skutt Ceramic Products Inc. to shamelessly promote their kilns while at the same time develop a private collection of the most valuable Peep Hole Plugs on earth for pennies on the dollar. (From Skutt’s website.)

Now is the time to enter!! All Submissions are due no later than January 31, 2017.

How to Enter:

  1. Make a Peep Hole Plug. The Plug must be made of clay, fired and functional. By “Functional” we mean: the plug fits into the peep hole’s 1 1/4 inch opening tapering to ¾ of an inch. The Peep Hole Plug needs to support itself while in the peep hole. Plug part should not be glazed (Underglaze is OK). The part of your plug that sets outside of the kiln maybe glazed.
  2. Take a digital Picture of it. ( preferably on grey paper)
  3. Go to the web site listed below before the January 31st deadline, fill out the form and post each photo.
  4. Check your e-mail in Mid February to see if one of your students pieces is selected as one of the 20 finalists to be displayed at the Skutt Booth at NCECA.
  5. Bring your piece to the show ( Vendor Exhibit Hall) where it may be chosen as a prize winner or

New this year!  Peeps chosen can be shipped to David L. Gamble and he will coordinate shipping them to NCECA.  Any pieces shipped will become part of the permanent collection and traveling Peep Plug Show exhibition that will travel to different venues around the country.

  1. The peeps will be judged this year by Bill Jones editor of Pottery Making Illustrated.

There are CASH PRIZES, too!!

First Place $300
Second Place $200
Third place $100
Honorable Mention (2) $50.

 

Prize winners become part of the permanent collection and traveling Peep Plug Show exhibition.
