Trophy for BDA Brick Awards
Maria Gasparian Studio has been commissioned by the UK Brick Development Association (BDA) to design and make trophies for the annual BDA Brick Awards for the last three years running, which celebrate the best brick architecture in the UK and worldwide.
Designed and made by Maria Gasparian, the trophies embody the creative possibilities of brick as a material.
Their design expresses the durability, longevity and aesthetics associated with bricks, while the dimensions and weight of the trophies correspond to brick dimensions.
The geometry of the pieces are based on the idea that brick can be read on both a micro and macro scale, with the base of the trophy representing a house: a structure made out of brick.
Each year the trophies are glazed in the colour of the theme of the year.
