Here at Interiors Addict we’re big fans of Etsy, and with Jen signing on as a judge of the Etsy Design Awards 2015, well it’s safe to say we’ve become even more obsessed!
So with the 54 finalists now announced, we thought we’d give you the opportunity to win the work of one of our favourite designers, Mariza Bray of Mari Bray. As one of the 12 designers showcased in the Home & Living category, her nominated product is the limited edition Vases with Gold Wings.
Consisting of two little vases, the faces are hand painted in pastel pink and grey, with carved eyes and mouths and a vintage floral ceramic decal. Both vases also have wings painted in pure gold. However, the best part is the vases can be personalised with you and your partner’s face. Now how cute is that?!
As well as having the opportunity to win Mariza Bray’s work, you can also vote for her or any of the other finalists in the Community Choice category. Voting is open until 20 August.
This is the second year of the Etsy Design Awards, which celebrates the people and talent that make Etsy a destination for creativity and original design. The finalists, selected from hundreds of exceptional entries across Australia and New Zealand, span five categories: Art, Illustration & Papergoods; Home & Lifestyle; Fashion & Accessories; New Talent; and Business As Unusual.
Etsy’s panel of high-profile design experts, including our very own Jen, Inside Out’s editor‐in‐chief Claire Bradley, National Gallery of Victoria senior curator Ewan McEoin, and Etsy’s managing director Australia and Asia, Helen Souness, now face the tough task of selecting a winner in each category. This year’s winners will be treated to a host of prizes designed to help them grow their businesses and profile. The New Talent and Community Choice winners will also receive a once‐in‐a‐lifetime trip to Etsy’s headquarters in Brooklyn, New York.
