The simplicity of the result belies the work involved. They do not look as though they have been worked on. They are intrinsically about the material in its honest form.

The award will be given to a ceramic artist who shows initiative working in clay. The work must be fresh and unique, demonstrating an understanding of ceramic processes and techniques and using them in a new and dynamic way, or by taking a traditional process or style and presenting it in a contemporary manner. We are looking for a maker who is taking clay in a new and exciting direction.
