The SNAG IMPACT Awards selection committee has named Arthur Hash as one of the inaugural award recipients. This initiative celebrates and supports artists making extraordinary contributions to the ever-evolving field of jewelry and metalsmithing. These awards are presented to two practitioners whose hand-crafted work has demonstrated notable impact in the areas of socially responsible practice, sustainability, technical innovation, and/or creative innovation.

Here are some of the highlights that the nominator shared about Arthur Hash’s contributions to the field:

“Arthur Hash has been practicing at the edge of craft and technology since 2005. Starting long before digital drawing software and digital output hardware were widely embraced. Hash has seamlessly found opportunities to integrate the digital into both traditional handmaking processes and as well as test the boundaries and potential of modern technologies. His true impact is in his embrace and practice of the open-source social movement, which rejects secrecy and centralized control of creative work in favor of decentralization, transparency, and unrestricted sharing of information.

…he has made exemplary contributions to the field of jewelry and metalwork through his philosophy of radical candor. Using social media platforms and his website Arthur has documented countless processes, shown technical software and hardware tests and experiments, shared his insights and advice, and built a following of digital-curious craftspeople and artists from all disciplines. Hash’s true impact is in his embrace and practice of the open-source social movement, which rejects secrecy and centralized control of creative work in favor of decentralization, transparency, and unrestricted sharing of information.”
