Intercollegiate Awards, etc.

I am finally posting more pictures from the 2nd Annual Intercollegiate Metals Exhibition. Four Awards were given by Juror Jessica Calderwood (her piece pictured above and below). I love the electroformed edge and beautiful drawing on this piece (entitled "Layout", copper and enamel).
First Place Student Award went to Lauren McAdams for her piece "Transportable Dialogue". Lauren is a graduate student at Arizona State University. Second Place Student Award went to Arnold Martin for his piece,"Tension Structure #8 (Wave Interference)". Arnold attends Wayne State University.
Third Place Student Award went to Kazumi Ito for her piece "The Warmest Place In The World". Kazumi is an undergraduate student at Arizona State University.
Honorable Mention Student Award went to
Kriste Dian McAnally for her piece, "Mind’s Fire". Kriste attends University of North Texas.
Here are images of some of my favorite pieces in the show.
