Crafting Excellence

Culture Cycle - Caitlin

by Caitlin Thomas


I believe that when thinking about an award for excellence in craft, you are forced to start thinking more creatively than usual. I wanted to represent a craft image without it looking messy or understated.

I researched ideas on what craft means to me and came up with a lot of ideas including jewellery, sewing and sculpting. From here I realised that an image of handmade jewellery is the direction I wanted to go in.

My logo is a representation of beads and a handmade bracelet. I like this idea because for me it symbolises different cultures coming together and uniting as one continuous cycle.

The coming together of different cultures is what can make the world more peaceful.
