Reichardt, 57, whose studio is in Chiswick, will be designing an art car for the event in Stoke-on-Trent, which is the headline exhibition of the international ceramics festival. 

The artists is well known for her large-scale public works with a social commentary, including her critically-acclaimed mural in South Acton "Tree of Life". 

Alun Graves, Chair of the BCB Award selection panel and Senior Curator, Ceramics and Glass 1900 – now at the V&A said: "The selection for BCB Award 2023 reflects the extraordinary breadth and diversity of contemporary ceramic practice. 

"Ambitious proposals have come from artists from across generations, presenting an array of different approaches and tackling a range of themes of relevance to today. 

"Exploring issues including the environment, well-being, rave culture, and the post-industrial landscape, and taking the form of ceramic sculpture, installation, and even a mosaiced car, the works promise to be both provocative and celebratory." 

Her piece for the exhibition will be an art car made with a 1969 Ford Zephyr donated by DJ Fatboy Slim using ceramic tiles to tell the story of Stoke's rave culture. 

Reichardt was one of the ten selected artists out of 180 entrants by a panel of leading contemporary professionals. 

The ten entrants will display their pieces at the event, with one of them being awarded £10,000 for excellence, innovation and creative ambition.
