Terryberry to design and create hand-crafted medallion for ArtPrizes’ top winner.
Grand Rapids, MI – September 10, 2010
The Terryberry Company is creating a one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted award for the 2010 grand prize winner of ArtPrize. The 10-ounce award, which will be made from Terryberry’s new 100 percent recycled Harmony Sterling Silver, will be presented to the top winner at ArtPrize’s closing ceremony on October 7, 2010. Terryberry’s custom manufacturing process of the medallion is a multi-step process involving wax molding, hand polishing and an eletronic fusing of a 24K gold finish.
