The craft&design Newcomer Award at bctf 2009

Daniel Kavanagh

craft&design; Newcomer Award Winner at the British Craft Trade Fair 2009

Vessel with Bronze handles, Earthenware Ceramics by Daniel Kavanagh

When judging for our craft&design; Newcomer Award at BCTF, we look for lots of things which collectively point to a successful future for the maker. Skill and craftsmanship in design and making are important of course, but so is presentation at the show, sensible pricing, a knowledge of the market and how the products fit into it, business skills and a plan for the future.

Daniel Kavanagh�s work really caught our eye for being professional, mature and particularly skilful; the classical lines of his ceramic pieces combined with his innovative use of bronze, create work which speaks of quality and craftsmanship. Daniel will receive 12 months marketing and promotional support from craft&design; to the value of �3,000.
