Trudie Alfred (1922–2010) was a well-known Sydney potter and teacher with a great passion for ceramics. She struggled financially to sustain a ceramic practice in her early years as a potter and so, to assist others in a similar position, she left a generous bequest to The Australian Ceramics Association. Trudie specified that the funds be used to support the work of students preparing to embark on a career in the field of ceramics.
