The Shortlist Has Been Selected
Our expert panel has undertaken a huge but hugely enjoyable task when it comes to reviewing the work. They have shortlisted 10 craftsmen from the UK.
Their aim is to shortlist entrants whose work lives and breathes modern craftsmanship. After that, we will be asking you to show your support for the entrant who, in your opinion, best demonstrates the collision of traditional craft and modernity.
Your votes will ultimately help us decide which modern craftsmen receive a share of the Ketel One Legacy prize fund.
Voting will be open until February 18 2013.
You can only vote once so think carefully about who you vote for.
