Competition: Open to Art


The deadline to attend the second edition of Open to Art, the International Competition of Ceramic Art and Design, has been extended to July 29, 2016.


Open to Art
Created and promoted by Officine Saffi, Open to Art confirms its status as a tool for enhancing and promoting the use of ceramics in contemporary art and design. The competition also represents an opportunity for reflecting on the latest developments in visual design and technology. Open to Art is a competition open to artists of any age, without thematic constraints and with the only requirement that ceramic has to be the principal material used in the work. You can compete for a choice of two sections: Art Ceramics or Design Ceramics.


An international jury will assess the works submitted, according to criteria of quality, research, originality and contemporaneity of the artwork

Symposium: Alice in Wonderland

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”

– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

The adventure of Alice in Wonderland has been a great inspiration for Guldagergaard. It is therefore with great pleasure that we invite you to a symposium on Guldagergaard based on the famous and charming adventure.


In the last weekend of the symposium, the work will culminate in an event worthy of the adventure – maybe we’ll even have a tea party, who knows? We only know we are looking forward to see you there!
