Every year we hold a contest. Last year artisans were given 10lbs of Artisan Concrete Mix, and this is what we got. This year we added a layer of complexity, artisans were given 10lbs of mix and a colored cord from The Color Cord Company. All of the pieces we received this year were worthy of merit. We will share these entries, along with descriptions and the stories of the artisans that made them, over the course of the coming months.
The winner of this contest receives a free ticket to EPIC, our annual gathering of concrete artisans. Judging is held at Haven, and a winner is chosen, or at least that was the plan....
This year the Haven Mavens chose a pendant from Jeff Girard of the Concrete Countertop Institute.
Jeff was followed closely by another pendant from our very own Philip Ferreira in second place.
Third place was hotly contested, and that is where we have a problem. Jeff and Philip were not qualified for the ticket to EPIC, and we still need to decide who will get the ticket. That is where you come in, you get to help us decide who is worthy. Here are the 5 pieces that were too close to call for third place. Leave a comment in the comments section with the number of the entry you believe should be the winner (one vote per person). We will announce a winner on Monday, August 3rd.
#1. The Octopus
#3. Rustic Modern
#4. One if by Sea
#5. Sculptural Pendant
We had a great time collaborating with The Color Cord Company. Great people with a great product. Their site is worth a visit.
