Rookwood to Create 2012 World Choir Games Trophies

The Rookwood Pottery Co. has been chosen to produce the Champions Trophies for the 2012 World Choir Games in July. Rookwood selected a design for the awards by Eunha Chung, Art Academy of Cincinnati student and former science teacher. Chung’s creation was chosen from a pool of submissions from students at the Art Academy and the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning at the University of Cincinnati. Rookwood is awarding Chung $1,000 for the 14-in. design—an elegant, bud-shaped cup adorned with a musical staff.

The Rookwood-produced trophies will be awarded to the Champion of the World Choir Games, known as the “Olympics of choral music,” in each of 23 musical categories. The champion is the gold-medal winning choir in The Champions Competition with the highest score in its genre from a panel of seven international judges.

“Eunha’s design captures the essence of the World Choir Games message—that music is a universal language—and combines it with the unique dynamics of clay,” said Martin Wade, chairman, Rookwood Pottery. “It is positive, inspiring and energetic, reflecting the games’ purpose of fostering an international community. We are so privileged to create the awards that the participants will carry home.”

Chung, a visual communications design student in her senior year, was born and raised in Seoul, Korea, and moved to Cincinnati in 2006. A former high school science teacher, she has long been interested in the intersection of science and art, and is scheduled to graduate from the Art Academy in 2012.
