Julian Cross ( 1968 intake ) gets an award

"I am pleased to say that the bas relief work that was commissioned by the Worshipful Company of Marketors was a piece of work that I entered into the annual Goldsmiths' Craft & Design Council competition and it has won awards. I received a Gold award and also a Council Special Award which is only awarded at the discretion of the Judges when they believe a work merits the distinction. I was also nominated for the Cartier Award, the "oscar" of the evening awards ceremony held at Goldsmiths' Hall in the city of London on March 5th. Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive in helping me to achieve this recognition."
