I very nearly forgot to blog about this years Hambleton Community Awards! I’ve been making these awards for a few years now and they’ve transformed in that time to become increasingly abstract. It’s pretty rare that I get asked to make things that are more decorative than functional. It’s become an opportunity to showcase skills that I don’t really use as much.
Over the last few months I’ve been working on a set of 11 awards for the community awards ceremony which was last night. Working on something which is a list on a piece of paper is different to the reality of seeing the winners collecting their plates.
A couple of weeks ago you might have spotted me in the Darlington and Stockton times. I’ve been working on a not so top secret project the last few weeks creating awards plates for Hambleton Council’s community awards ceremony.
