Castle Douglas potter Hannah McAndrew has just been voted the Silver Award winner in the Ceramics section of the craft&design Magazine’s National Selected Awards 2009.
Angie and Paul Boyer at craft&design Magazine say “Since the beginning of this year, visitors to the craft&design website have been voting for the Makers of their choice in our 2009 craft&design Selected Awards. The Public Vote has been a unique chance for everyone everywhere to vote for their favourite Makers. We set up these Awards not only to celebrate our 25th anniversary year, but to also promote the superb creative talent that we have in Britain and Ireland.In fact, voting was so enthusiastic in the final few days that our website was exceptionally busy and a small number of people contacted us to say that they were experiencing some minor problems in placing their votes. But we responded to them quickly and ensured that their votes were registered and that all voting throughout has been fair and valid.
Hannah whose very personal and contemporary take on traditional slipware has earned her this merit is thrilled with her award and is grateful to all the members of the public who voted for her.
Hannah has been working on a special dinner setting which will go on display at the McGill Duncan Gallery in Castle Douglas in their exhibition “An Artists’ Lunch and a Feast of Pots” which opens Sunday 6th September. It is the first time Hannah has exhibited with the gallery and she has been quite taken with the notion of creating a place setting for one diner especially for the show.
Hannah will be exhibiting her range of slip decorated tableware at Ceramics in the City in London (18 - 20 September) which returns to the Geffrey Museum. Showing work by 50 selected ceramicists, a mixture of both well-known and emerging talents will be on display. An array of styles, techniques, colour and texture will be shown in domestic objects ranging from functional tableware and lamps to purely aesthetic or quirky one-off pieces.
