“Bowls, cups and plates speak to friends, family and the sharing of experiences.  These vessels contain nourishment and the memories of shared meals and stories. The human hand connects to these objects, making them personal and intimate. To touch and be touched is very human and very clay.
” -
-CJ Niehaus

 

Celebrating its 10-year anniversary, t
he LEAP Award was established in 2007 in honor of Contemporary Craft Director of Exhibitions Kate Lydon’s 20-years of service. The program recognizes exceptional emerging talent in the contemporary craft field and provides opportunities for early career artists to bring their artwork to the consumer market.

The yearlong retail program features, markets, and sells the work of one winner, who also receives a $1000 prize, and six finalists.
