The jury found the image submitted mysterious and enigmatic. It raised a great discussion between the Jury that resulted in their being agreement that it would hopefully inspire future generations to work with this beautiful material and be brave to do many different things. The composition of materials was handled in a sophisticated manner with great skill.

The Amber Prize
Kairi Sirendi, Estonia.
Sponsored by the International Amber Association 1 kg of amber.
A direct honesty in the carving of the faces with a rough sculptural quality. The piece demonstrates an intuitive and sensitive handling of this special media.
 
The Silver Prize
Miron Kutarba, Poland.
Sponsored by KGHM Polska Miedź SA 1 kg of silver.
This prize provided an alternative perspective for the competition.
A well observed, witty and almost kitsch design inspired by a study of everyday popcorn with amber as the kernel of the idea.
