JORGC Design Award
During Contemporania Barcelona High Craftsmanship 2023 I was honoured to receive the JORGC Award for Design. I would like to thank the jurors from JORGC Catalunya, Alex Riu, Sílvia Serra, Gemma López, and Lluís Comín for their vote of confidence in my work. I would also like to thank the Ontario Arts Council and the Government of Ontario for their financial support through grants for this endeavor. And a big thank you to the Contemporania 2023 team for the wonderful experience at the fair and all their support.
A brief write up about the award can be found here in Catalan.
