The AWARD panel  have selected ten artists to present new work which spans the spectrum from material to object to idea, With large scale installation and intimate displays audiences can anticipate that they will be impressed, intrigued and delighted by the work on show. The collective work of this years group of artists stands testament to the abiding interest in clay as a medium for making and exploring ideas and contributes to the continuing rise of public interest in ceramics.
