The craft&design Award at Potfest in the Pens 2012

Each year we sponsor Competition Prize at Potfest in the Pens (Penrith), where exhibitors at Potfest are invited to make a special piece to reflect a particular theme. This is regarded as an opportunity for potters to experiment, create an original piece and have fun with clay!

A huge amount of thought, time, work and creativity had been put into this year's entries and it was probably the hardest choice we have ever had to make, just about every entry could have been a winner! The theme of the competition was 'Games and Puzzles' and the piece we eventually decided upon was 'Mouse Trap' by Jean Blood - a surprised but delighted Jean received huge applause from the other potters - and a bottle of champagne from us!

Jean's work will be the front cover feature for the July/August 2013 issue of craft&design; Magazine.
