As part of our ongoing Saul Bell Design Award retrospective, we’re devoting today’s post to past winners Eva Martin and Heather Bayless.
In 2006, Eva Martin won the SBDA Grand Prize for her whimsical and fantastic “Carouseling Cufflinks.” The cufflinks are entirely handmade from silver and gold sheet and wire. From the top they look like fairly simple round cufflinks, but looking underneath reveals a carousel. There is a car, train, plane, boat, ship and truck that spin around when the yellow sapphire-studded roofs are turned.
Heather Bayless won first place in the Hollowware Category in 2007 for her piece, “Spore Shaker.”
