American Craft Week Showcase 2019
October 2019 marks the Tenth Anniversary of American Craft Week, and this year’s artist contest reflects that milestone. We asked craftspeople to submit photographs of a piece of their work which paid “Homage to the Number 10.” Artists could do this boldly or subtly, and in their submission they needed to explain how the number 10 influenced their piece.
After evaluating the submissions, the ACW National Committee chose the Grand Prize Winner: Charlotte Behrens of Charlotte Arvelle Glass in Mount Carol, IL. Her entry, “Crafting Under a Star-Studded Sky,” featured 10 various tools used by craftspeople, with many markings representing the number 10, and all set under a sky studded with 10 dichroic stars.
