The judges' statement (Steve Ogden) said: The high standard and range of work shortlisted has made the judging process a challenging and extremely rewarding task and all entries should be congratulated. The additional notes and answers to the questions supplied by each maker really added to the process by providing a window into their journey both as a maker and creative individual towards their current craft practice. There is a real sense of practical experience and constant experimentation within the work with makers seeking new approaches to the medium, decoration and form. The crafts seem to generate within its practitioners creative and practical risk takers which can be seen in both the practical outcomes and their narratives.
