2018 - Serenna Arensbach

2019 - Nabila Anandira


We are proud to announce this year's winner of the Mudflat Award for Outstanding Student in Ceramic Arts,

Bianca Oppedisano
As Bianca explains:
"At Somerville High School, I studied ceramics and I enjoyed every second of it. It was a great experience. I discovered that I really love making 3-D art and making my drawings realized in real life out of clay was amazing. I mainly did hand building which gave me the freedom to get the exact look I wanted in my work. After high school I’m going to be attending Umass Boston for environmental science with a minor in art."
Congratulations Bianca!  Best of everything at college and -when things open up again- be sure to come by Mudflat to say hello, catch up, and know that you are part of this vibrant clay community.
