Provincial artist wins award


Urve Manuel, a glass artist working in western Newfoundland, has been awarded the 2016 Atlantic Canada Craft Award for Excellence for Product Design in a ceremony held on Feb. 7 as part of the 39th annual Atlantic Craft Trade Show in Halifax.

The Excellence in Product Design award recognizes a producer who has demonstrated outstanding quality and creativity in the design of a product. Manuel was nominated by the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Inspired by the natural world and island culture, Manuel’s work reflects her environment with kiln-formed glass salmon, trout, codfish and caribou that are shaped to suggest movement. Manuel’s latest work explores paté de verre, a technique used to create delicate one-of-a-kind vessels that look and feel like sugar and are created using a colour palette springing from the sea and the shore.
Recognizing the benefits from tourism and craft partnerships, Manuel established a studio and craft shop in Rocky Harbour in 2014.
