Honorable Mention

It is an honor to have been awarded an "Honorable Mention" for my chawan in the Workhouse Clay International 2017 exhibition. Given the incredible quality and diversity of work in this show, as well as knowing the extremely high aesthetics bar that juror Chris Gustin sets, I am very humbled. There were only five awards given (Best in Show, 1st Place, 2nd Place, and two Honorable Mentions), and its such a pleasure to have received one. This is the piece that was awarded, and was the only functional piece of the five...
