The awards trophies have been created by Jo Vincent. Designed to reflect the intimate relationship between family businesses and Cumbria. Cumbria is more than a landscape, businesses and communities all contribute to our county to make part of a whole; and the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Jo’s work focuses on her engagement with the Cumbrian landscape, permanent geological formations above and under the ground as well as temporary shifts in the landscape caused by seasons, tides and weather. The awards have been created using a variety of kiln formed glass techniques with many of the pieces spending many days in the kiln due to their irregular thickness and textures created in the glass. Each is unique rather like the lucky family business who receives them.
