The craft&design Prize at Potfest in the Pens 2013

Ian Roberts with craft&design editor Angie Boyer

craft&design were delighted to once again sponsor the competition at Potfest in the Pens at the beginning of August. The idea is that the potters are given a theme for the competition ahead of the event and they make a piece which goes on display at the show. This year they were all asked to make a clock - to reflect the passing of time, with craft&design celebrating our 30 years and Potfest seeing its 20th birthday.

Ian Roberts makes clocks from clay, that's exactly what he does - so he knew he had to come up with something rather special for the competition. And he did just that - Ian's 'me dad's dad's clock' was so tall that it literally stood head and shoulders above all the other pieces. It was a popular winner for this year's prize!

Ian's work will be the front cover feature of our July/August 2014 issue, meanwhile, here's a taster of the work he does - none of it quite so large or elaborate as the piece that won though!
