The Joyce Stewart Vase



Joyce Stewart Vase




The Trustees of the World Orchid Conference decided to honour their late colleague, Joyce Stewart, by creating a new award for the best scientific poster displayed at the 2011 Conference in Singapore.


Joyce was a strong proponent of the poster competitions which allowed a wide range of orchid subjects to be shown in accessible poster form and gave opportunity to students and hitherto unpublished researchers to put their work before the orchid community for review.


The Spathoglottis Joyce Stewart Vase was designed and produced by Larry Mayse of Nature Glassworks.
