The Jerwood Applied Arts Prize is an annual competition that runs on a six year cycle, encompassing Metal, Jewellery, Ceramics, Glass, Textiles and Furniture disciplines. It is a partnership between the Crafts Council and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, and together each year they run a touring exhibition profiling the work of the six successful makers in the running to receive the £30,000 prize for their outstanding contribution to their craft.

This year it is the turn of the jewellers, so here is a run-down of the candidates…

Yoko Izawa

Nora Fok

Mah Rana

Grainne Morton

Adam Paxon

Susan Cross

Lots of beautiful work to choose from this time around…and as a result, I am undecided who I think might win…but do personally hope Adam Paxon {a former tutor of mine} scoops the prize, as his work really is technically sublime in person!!

– I look forward to the results with eager anticipation…this is one upcoming show to keep your eye on….!!
