Austell Ceramic

Bringing a creative spirit to St Austell

One of the aims of Austell Ceramic and the Whitegold Project is to reimagine visually deprived areas St Austell and surrounding area in order to build pride and confidence in our common public spaces.

Working with local groups, established and emerging artists from Cornwall, from Stoke-on-Trent and from all parts of the world have been invited to research and develop permanent and temporary public art installations and projects that respond to St Austell and environs as a unique place.

Projects include setting up workshops, making sculptures, crafting mosaics & tiles, making architectural ceramic planters & green walls, fabricating new benches, putting together radio shows and more. Projects like these will not only improve visual amenity but, by getting people to take ownership of their public spaces, demonstrate the amazing potential for unleashed creativity to make a difference to our lives.

Artists who are making works for the public realm with Whitegold include:

PC Projects| David Mach | Marion Brandis | Matt Davis | Sandy Brown | Cleo Mussi | Susan Elliott | Jenny Beavan | Simon Bayliss | Studio HOT.Mess | Paul Jackson | Georgia Gendall | Robin Sullivan | Tana West
