Pewter Live 2016
The Pewterers’ Company’s annual showcase for artistic and craft talent was in full swing as the Clerk arrived to represent the Guild of Entrepreneurs at the Livery Reception on May 25th at Pewterers’ Hall. Surveying the exquisite array of entries and exhibits together with the Masters and Clerks of numerous other Guilds and Livery Companies, the versatility of the material and the artistry of the entrants was as impressive as ever.
The Clerk particularly admired a tactile pair of ‘Celebratory Tumblers’ which constituted Alice Stevens’s (FdA Silversmithing and Jewellery, Truro College) entry into the Student Competition – Decorative Arts category, and a three-piece cruet set with spoons entitled ‘Pass The Salt’ in the Open category by Trish Woods.
The winners of each of the categories will be announced on Thursday 26th May, and more information can be found at http://www.pewterers.org.uk/pewter_live/pewterlive2016.html
