Since 2008, I’ve had the pleasure and honor of fabricating the “Solstice Award”; for the Science Fiction Writer’s of America Nebula Awards. For these awards I customize a Nymphalidae: cymothoe beckeri butterfly perched atop a sundial, and have a plaque engraved noting the recipient and year. This award is for individuals who have had a significant impact on the science fiction or fantasy landscape, and is intended for those who have consistently made a major positive difference within the speculative fiction field. Some recipients have been Sir Terry Pratchett and Carl Sagan. As a sculptor, I never really thought I’d design an award and it’s been a real treat to be part of such a unique one for a noteworthy accomplishment.
