These Are The Very Best Of Australia's Handcrafters and Makers!
TDF Design Awards
Despite its obvious shortcomings, 2020 has been a great year for handmade anything. Everyone is doing it! From sourdough starters to at-home pottery, the boom towards the amateur artisan has taken on new heights. With everyone housebound, who can blame us?
However, the 11 finalists shortlisted in the Handcrafted category of The Design Files + Laminex Design Awards 2020 are far from rookies. These specialists are hugely talented craftspeople ranging from glass blowers to ceramicists, toothpaste sculptors (yep!) to First Nations textile artists. We are beyond proud of the diversity of mediums represented in this list!
Judges Amanda Dziedzic (who makes our INCREDIBLE glass trophies!), textile artist and weaver Elisa Carmichael and creative director of Anchor Ceramics, Bruce Rowe, have the joyous but difficult task ahead of them to crown a winner. Join us for a deeper dive into the nominees!
