I’ve won an award!!!
Before lockdown I submitted a design to a brief set by the Richard Seager Annual Arts and Crafts award. I managed to get through to the final stages of the process where I had to prepare a presentation and talk to a panel of judges about my design.
I created a presentation to present through zoom as well as glass samples and a scale model. It all went really well and the judges asked a lot of interesting questions about the design and technicalities of making the piece.
Luckily a few days later I found out that I’d won the award as well as a commission!
Unfortunately, the commission venue was forced to pull out as a result of funding due to Coronavirus but the awards team have been amazing and are currently looking at other potential locations that I could create a different commission for.
