I'm Honored & Thrilled !

To once again be awarded one of the Top Traditional Artisans in America, from the Early American Life Magazine. WOW! This will be my 7th consecutive year to receive this honor!

Here is a little bit about the Directory :
The Directory of Traditional American Crafts is an honor bestowed on a handful of artisans who work in traditional media, styles, and crafts, an award that singles out their work as the best now produced in America today. Each year a jury of museum curators, collectors, and other authorities selects the work of the top traditional crafters working in America to be honors and listed in the Directory, which appears in Early American Life magazine.
In addition to being an honor for the artists, the Directory is also a buying guide. It presents to you a selection of the best historically informed handwork in America today. The Directory will help you select the best furniture, pottery, ironwork, decorative objects, and more for period-correct decorating, collecting, or movie-making." (quote from Early American Life)
