Wedgwood Honors Young Designers
May 30, 2012,
Winner Claudia Meyer for Juliet
NEW YORK-Tabletop company WWRD last week celebrated the winners of its fourth annual Josiah Wedgwood Design Competition, which recognizes the top talent from America's top design schools to conceptualize and design tabletop inspired by the rich heritage of the Waterford, Wedgwood and Royal Doulton brands.
The Mission of the Josiah Wedgwood Design Award is to foster innovation in tabletop design and provide a forum for America's emerging young designers to apply classroom learning to a commercial endeavor. The theme of this year's competition was "what is old is new" and students from Parsons, The New School For Design in New York; Pratt Institute, School of Art & Design in New York; and Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, R.I. were invited to participate. Students were judged on creativity, presentation and marketability.
