Now in its 29th year Pewter Live 2017 was a tremendous success. The variety and quality of entries was outstanding. The Pewter Live Sub-committee Chaired by Laila Zollinger put on a spectacular show with mixed media 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:
Open - Student, Decorative Arts, and Jewellery.
For 2017 the Pewter Live sub-committee devised a brief for the Open competition which asked entrants to produce a pewter item, or range of pewter items, that would compliment a contemporary lifestyle, made of mixed materials, with at least 50% being constructed of pewter. The brief suggested that the other media might be glass, wood, plastic, horn, leather, fabric, another metal, stone or perhaps, paper, or a combination of these materials. The committee was keen to have a range of items including decorative, jewellery or an item for domestic use. After careful deliberation the winners and runners up were chosen with the prizes presented by Nick Crean, Chairman of the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, on Thursday 25th May.
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.
