Anthony Bourdain Announces American Craft Council Fellows with The Balvenie

By Roseanne Tabachnik

April 7, 2016

On Monday, Anthony Bourdain named Martin Demaine and his son Erik Demaine as winners of the fourth annual American Craft Council Rare Craft Fellowship Award for their artful computational origami.

The father-son duo from Cambridge, MA was selected for their research of geometric folding algorithms with origami, which is now part of Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) permanent collection.

As fellows, the Demaines receive a two-week-long trip to Scotland, where the duo will spend time apprenticing under a local craftsman at The Balvenie distillery. In addition to their trip, the fellows are granted a $10,000 endowment fund to help pay for materials and the continuation of their craft.

The Demaines will also have the opportunity work with David Stewart, the malt master, and learn about traditional crafts of whiskey making.
