Clayton Keyes, MFA Candidate in The University of Tulsa School of Art, has been awarded "Juror's Choice" in the First Annual Pottery Northwest UN-WEDGED Ceramic Competition and Art Show.

The exhibition was juried by University of Georgie Professor Emeritus Andy Nasisse.  According to the juror, some of the pieces "were truly inspired and had real power and presence.  It was very hard to isolate on of these pices and way that it was the 'best', but the sculpture that was chosen for the Juror's Award was fresh, alive, very compelling, and could suggest multiple leavels of meaning!  This stratification of ideas, both visually and conceptually, is the path to creaing objects that have transformative power, objects that give the viewer a sustaining experience and that have possibility of becoming univeral"
