A set of four boxes hold the awards for Pope Francis’ 2018 Laudato Si Startup Challenge

To honor start up companies that play a major role in developing sustainable ways to fight the global climate crisis, Pope Francis has developed the Laudato Si Startup Challenge. Working with the incomparable glass artist, Jack Wax, these boxes made it all the way to Vatican City.

Like all custom pieces, the same commitment, detail, and craftsmanship went into making these boxes - though I may have felt a little more pressure knowing it would pass through the hands of His Holiness.
