  •         10 commissions available for a fee of £300 inclusive of materials
  •        Apply as soon as possible and by 10th July (5pm) at the latest 
  •        Proposals will be assessed and selected as they arrive    
  •            Objects to be a maximum of 30cm x 30cm        
  •          We are happy to consider existing small works for purchase. 

PPG have ten small commissions available for small sculptural works designed to be handled. These objects will form part of a large engagement project called Wonder Room, which uses the magic of early incarnations of the museum (wunderkammer, or cabinets of curiosity) as the basis for arts workshops and events. The project is designed to inspire something of the wonder of the unknown, the strange magic of objects and to encourage speculation and story-telling for visitors of all ages. Each of these sculptures will be added progressively over the coming months to a purpose-built cabinet in the gallery space, which visitors can explore when they visit.   

We are looking for works of sculpture in any media (or mixed media) which may look functional, decorative or exotic, hand-made or mechanical, fantastical, geological, mysterious or sinister. 

This commission is part of the Monument Project and it is funded by Awards for All. 


Email a short proposal, including sketches/design and photographs (if available), to Kate Sloan at kate@peterpottergallery.org  

Please include a short paragraph about your practice and include a link to any online resources including websites or images of work. 

Please note that proposals will be chosen on merit and the suitability for the project and artists of all backgrounds and stages of their careers are welcome to apply.
