After a busy day of adjudication and deliberation, we have determined this year's winner of the MADE Art Prize as Kate Shooter and Ellie Young!
The prize is a solo exhibition for each artist at MADE in 2022, a cash prize to support their practice and a year's curatorial support from the Gallery Team and Anthony Shapland, Artist, Founder and Director of G39.
MADE would like to also thank all entrants to the prize this year, especially the exhibitors whose work contributed to an incredible exhibition.
The exhibition runs until 7.8.21, which leaves time to vote for our first 'People's Prize' winner.

Meet our maker of the month, Harriet of Fallow Deer Ceramics, and her latest range of work "Seashore Collection" currently available through MADE.
This latest collection is inspired by the natural and delicate colours which can be found along the seashore. The matte textures of shells and different hues of blue of the sea have given this collection both a comforting and fresh feel. The mugs in particular are the perfect size for a morning cup of coffee or tea!
Join us via Zoom to find out more about the exhibiting artists and their work. Director, artist and Curator Zoë Gingell will be speaking with the exhibiting artists about their practices and work currently on display.
