Three awards are offered each year; ‘The Valentine Clays Peers Award’ (best maker at the show), which went to Michel Cohen from France. The second is for ‘The Student Award’ sponsored by Art in Clay and was won by Alex McCarthy (University of Wales Institute Cardiff). The third award sponsored by www.studiopottery.co.uk went to Barry Guppy. The bi-annual award is ‘The Mick Casson Award’ This award is donated by Steve Harrison and Ben Casson. It’s a tankard made by Steve in a wooden presentation box crafted by Ben. All awards are presented when the show closes on Saturday (5.30pmish) and all are welcome to attend.
