2015 Artist Finalists
Community Vote for Final Selection
ARTiculture is excited to present the following list of 15 finalists for the 2015 pilot program. Our jury selected these artists’ proposals based on a variety of factors. Now, it’s up to the community to decide which 8 artists will be supported financially this season.
Please review the list of candidates, then follow the Vote button below to cast your ballots. You may vote once per day until July 8—so be sure to visit again and vote for other favorites.
In the finalist group, there are two sections:
- Finalists with a proposal to make 25 pieces (only half the shareholders will receive a piece from each winning artist)
- Finalists with a proposal to make 50 pieces (every shareholder will receive a piece from these artists).
You can vote in both sections for each ballot you cast. There will be four winners from each category.

Roughly 9 inches tall and fully functional as flower vases.
