Designers & Makers of The ARTA Awards

Thomas Lyte are delighted to have been commissioned to create the trophy and awards for the Asian Restaurant & Takeaway Awards (ARTA) 2018. Rewarding excellence, craft, and great taste, the ARTA Awards are a nationwide celebration of British Asian Cuisine and the individuals involved in its creation.

Crafted in Sterling Silver with a solid gold bowl and flame and 24 carat gold buttons the main award stands 16” tall with the individual awards standing at 14”. A blend of 3D printing and traditional craft methods, including casting, spinning, chasing, plating and polishing, were used by 11 of our staff over 100 combined working hours to realise this spectacular piece.

The 2018 Gala Evening took place on the 30th of September at the InterContinental Hotel at The O2 London, with Curry Palace in Cottenham rising above the other worthy regional nominees to take the main award.
