Elizabeth Krome - Gold Boat - 1st Place, 3-D Art
6 x 9.5 x 7.5
"The clean lines of Krome's Gold Boat emphasize this vessel's essential form. Every part of this vessel is well-considered, from the base's interaction to the table to the proportion of the cavity and handles. The repeating yet varying spherical arches are incredibly satisfying, creating a strong sense of unity and rhythm, further strengthening the piece's overall aesthetic. The brilliant design and superb craftsmanship of Gold Boat result in a vessel that surpasses merely function and stands firmly as a beautiful work of art."
This award is sponsored by Josephine Thorpe. The award is named in memory of Chris McCann, a local artist who created many of the pieces in Josie's sculpture garden. This year the award also memorializes blacksmith and glass blower Wade Brooks, an original member of the Art Speaks on the Bay Juried Art Show committee.
