Congratulations to the finalists and winners of the 2010 Saul Bell Design Awards. Here are the fabulous pieces that took the top honors in the PMC category. To the top right you’ll see the first place winner from Wendy Wallin-Malinow. Below and to the left is the second place winner from Angela Baduel-Crispin. I’m fascinated by how entirely different the two top winners are from each other this year. Especially when viewed along with the three finalists, this collection is a testament to the incredible versatility of metal clay. Check out all the winners and finalists in all categories here. It really is a beautiful collection.
Each of these talented artists has developed a rich web presence. Wendy’s site is a riot of color and personality that reflects perfectly on her work. Angela’s site is bi-lingual with a blog that’s rich in technical information and design inspiration, reflecting on her nurturing role of teacher and mentor to so many in our metal community.
Great work, ladies! I can’t wait to see what you come up with next.
