3D Design and Craft graduates Lin Cheung and Phoebe Cummings have been shortlisted for The Woman’s Hour Craft Prize.
The competition aims to find and celebrate the most innovative and exciting craft practitioner or designer-maker resident in the UK today.
The prize is organised in partnership with the Crafts Council and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), and was launched to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Woman’s Hour. The prize will reward originality and excellence in concept, design and process and will seek to recognise a craft practitioner or designer-maker who is an outstanding artist and who has significantly contributed to craft practice in the last five years. An overall winner will be chosen and awarded a prize of £10,000.
Lin Cheung is an artist and designer who explores jewellery both materially and conceptually. She designed the medals for the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
Phoebe Cummings creates temporary sculptures and installations from raw clay. She was the winner of the British Ceramics Biennial Award in 2011.
