2017 Recipient

Steven Pollock

Furniture Design

To pursue a career anchored in creativity and design, Steven Pollock dropped his briefcase 15 years ago and picked up an unconventional material: concrete. Using self-taught techniques, Steven finishes the cast concrete and incorporates other materials to create minimalist pieces, which leave very little room for forgiveness; each piece must be perfect and no detail goes unnoticed. Mirroring the environment around him and drawing on the relationship between humanity and its interaction with nature, Steven's work utilizes BC's homegrown materials and is often inspired by local architecture. In his own words, "Working with concrete is a commitment. It's a material that retains the ugly and the beautiful." Steven's award-winning bold and distinctive designs are easily recognizable and make a unique contribution to BC's cultural and creative economy.
