Mollie Staley was a local artist who was one of the founding members of the Henley Art & Crafts Guild. She and her husband Roy were stalwart members of the Guild for many years and following Mollie’s death, an award was set up in her name. This award is presented annually, for the best picture in the Guild Spring Exhibition, and consists of a beautiful kiln-formed Dartington Crystal Glass sculpture designed and created by their daughter, Jane Grant. The sculpture represents an artist’s palette. The mahogany base was made and adapted for the award by another guild member, Hugh Fitzwilliams, as a collaborative piece.
