Yesterday Bonnie and her mother, Bobbie who the trophy is honoring, stopped by and picked up the trophy from me. Both Bonnie and Bobbie loved it and I’m so happy that it worked out that way. Last week Bonnie had some last minute additions to the design, and those bits were her mother’s favorite parts, so she made the right call.
Not only was the finished piece a success with its patrons, but there was an article about Bobbie Rose and the Trophy in the West Chester Daily Local by Tara Lynn Johnson. Bobbie’s story is wonderful and what WGAP and Bonnie are doing to honor her is amazing. (You can see the pre-copper incarnation of the bowl in the article.)
