South of England Show – Prestigious Prize Winner!

This year’s South of England Show hosts the prestigious Young Craftsman of the Year Award – and the art department has gained a win!  Louis Evans has won a prize for his IB Visual Arts Ceramic piece entitled ‘Mother’. 

The sculpture was hand coiled and developed from a life drawing he created in our 6th form Saturday sessions.  It was heavily influenced by Henry Moore, Surrealism and organic sculptural pieces he saw on our trip to the Cass Sculpture Foundation near Chichester.  The piece was so large it had to be cut in two to fit in our kilns!  He will receive his £75 prize and certificate on Saturday 11th June at 11am.
