The South Carolina Ceramic Association has been on hiatus for the last two years due to Covid, but was back as strong as ever at the Jamil Temple in Columbia Sept 30-Oct 1.

The two themes for the show were “Ceramics in the Forest” (for the first year the show was cancelled) and “No Place Like Gnome” for the second year.

Tricia Hardy of Mad Ceramics in Mocksville and three students/customers made a strong showing at the competition.

Linda Whitehouse of Winston-Salem won the Jasmine trophy for best Advanced Hobbyist with her Gnome, also an honorable Mention trophy for a box with hand built flowers and brushstroke design. She also won 3 more blue ribbons.

In the novice division, Jackie Leo of Yadkinville, won five blues & a red (second) Betty Morton also of Yadkinville won two blues.

Tricia Hardy won the Masters with her “No Place Like Gnome” Platter, a blue for her “Ceramics in the Forest” and two reds.

Linda will move up to the Masters category next year. She and Hardy purchased the same piece of bisque to work on for the theme of the show next year “Winter Wonderland”.
