AWARD CRITERIA

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.
