RDS National Crafts Competition

1st Prize RDS Award of Excellence, Karl Harron
There's a good chance I'm going to win New York's Mega Millions this weekend, so I'm shopping around for a private jet (to take me back and forth to Ireland, and maybe a few other places, too) and checking out the recently announced winners of the 2011 RDS National Crafts Competition (so that I can kickstart my new hobby as a collector and decorate my many homes with the latest in Irish art and design). These few bits and pieces will be a good start for my penthouse apartment:
1st Prize Woodturning, Robert O'Connor
2nd Prize Furniture, Fergal Costello
1st Prize Patchwork and Quilting, Elizabeth Ann Fleeton
The RDS National Crafts Competition is one of the Europe’s leading independently adjudicated craft competitions. It's open to all craft workers and designers in Ireland (including students and apprentices), and boasts a prize fund in excess of €28,000 over 20 different categories.

1st Prize Ceramics, Mark Campden
Winner Ceramics Ireland Award, Grainne Watts

1st Prize Printed Textiles, Bernadette Madden
1st Prize Ceramics (Contemporary), Kieran Whitelaw

1st Prize Leatherwork, Una Burke
I'm excited that next year I'll have enough time/money/private jets to attend the RDS National Crafts Competition in person ... wearing these shoes:

1st Prize Lace Category, Marie Cullen
