Spinning and engraving may be carried out by other craftsmen, and must be indicated in the description of how the piece was created. All slides will be retained for the archives and publicity. Winners will be required to send black & white photographs for publicity.
Please support our Suppliers who have generously donated prizes to this competition.
A diverse, professional panel including Jeannine Falino, Carolyn and Peter Lynch Curator of Decorative Arts and Sculpture, Arts of the Americas, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and SAS Artisan members Michael Banner and Pauline Warg, will comprise the jury. Each piece will be judged on its design and demonstration of the entrant's creativity and mastery of technique.
