Nico Gruzling, Vancouver Community College, Fashion:
Nico is an emerging fashion designer specializing in innovative designs using foremost technologies. Her computer science background (MSc) puts her on the forefront of made-to-measure technology. Her design background and working in industrial design for several years as a designer for a marine engineering firm has given her a perspective that is unique among her peers, allowing her to conceive and implement new design through the application of CAD design, and to incorporate new construction processes borrowed from other fields.
Logan Kenler, Emily Carr University, Ceramics:
Logan explores themes of identity, nostalgia, ritual, and shrine through figurative ceramic vessels informed by traditional and pop-cultural influences.
Francesca Cresciullo, Vancouver Community College, Jewellery Program:
For two years Francesca studied in the Jewellery Art and Design program at Vancouver Community College. For her first year, she was awarded the Artistic Achievement Award 2017 and, for her second year, the Circle Craft Overall Outstanding Achievement Award. During this time, she also received the Emergent Artist Award from the Craft Council BC, and an Honourable Mention for the CJA (Canadian Jewellers Association) 100th Anniversary Design Competition 2018.
In 2003, Circle Craft initiated a student scholarship award program to support new and upcoming craftspeople. This program is part of Circle Craft’s commitment to community outreach programming. For more information, follow Circle Craft on Facebook and Twitter.
