Now in its 26th year Pewter Live 2014 was a tremendous success. The variety and quality of entries was outstanding. The Pewter Live Sub-committee Chaired by Richard Parsons put on a spectacular show with the raw element of Tin influencing the design of the displays and catalogue.

There are two competitions: the Student and the Open. The Student competition has three categories each with a brief: Decorative Arts, Interior, Architectural & Furniture and Fashion - the Total Look. This year the Pewter Live sub-committee, chaired by Richard Parsons, devised a brief for the Open competition 2014 which encouraged the entrants to submit their finest piece. The specification was that the entry was an example of their current work. It can be made of mixed material providing that the entry is predominantly made of pewter. There were no restrictions on size or what the object or group of objects might be other than they must not have been entered in previous Pewter Live competitions. This open approach attracted a wide range of entries of superb quality. The entrants were able to keep their individuality and enter designs which will attract commercial buyers as well as the judge’s eye. After careful deliberation the winners and runners up were chosen with the prizes been presented by, designer, John Makepeace OBE on Thursday 22nd May. CLICK here for a full list of the winners.
Pewter Live is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring designers to gain not only a valuable commission but a great deal of publicity. The three day event also had a shop selling pewter ware by leading manufacturers and Craftsmen. For a full catalogue please see the link at the bottom of the page.
