716 China Design Contest
716 China is a locally owned and operated store which sells inventory from the former Buffalo China/Niagara Ceramics factory including their own popular Roaming Buffalo dishes. Buffalo China, originally called Buffalo Pottery, opened in 1901. It was located near the intersection of Bailey and Clinton. Today, the former factory is being redeveloped and is home to the Buffalo Curling Club, Yoga Pants Distillery, Buffalo Filmworks and more.
The Buffalo Pottery Logo from 1901 was a quaint lifelike standing buffalo. We would like to reimagine what the logo would look like today if the factory was still in operation. This “new” logo will be featured on the 10,000 remaining dishes at the factory and be sold as a limited-edition collection.
The winning artist will have their work featured on the front of each piece and their name highlighted on the back. The collection will be sold in our 716 China Store as well as online at 716china.com.
Entries must be received by September 7, 2018. A winner will be chosen by September 14, 2018. The collection will be sold in time for the 2018 holiday season.
