Smithsonian Craft Show Review

I attended the Smithsonian Craft Show for the first time this year. It was a gorgeous venue (The National Building Museum) and a wonderful show. I loved getting to walk amongst some of the greatest crafters in America, seeing their work first hand and talking to them. Crafters by definition want people to use their work and are generally people friendly. Here were some of my favorites:

Jennifer Heller Zurick: Willow Bark Baskets

Robert Briscoe: Functional Stoneware

Stephen Merritt: Potterywww.merrittvessel.com

Lara Moore: Furniture, Wall Art, etc.

There were more favorites but I didn't get their cards. Look up the Craft Show for a complete list!
