On first observation my design can be perceived as the back of someones head. The main concept behind the design was to incorporate a strong element of craft so the viewer observing can understand it. The two 'balls of hair' can also be seen as heads for two different individuals who are both involved in craft. The knitting sticks are an object anyone can relate to, they know what they are, they know what they are used for. Two well known elements of craft that are pretty universal so people can relate them to what this award stands for. Blue and green are colors that are recognized as colors of the earth. The blue for water and the green for land.
