Carolina Designer Craftsmen: this past weekend

We are home and very pleased with this past weekends event in Raleigh at the Carolina Designer Craftsmen 40th annual Fine craft and Design show. Lisa Oakely awarded us with the Cedar Creek Gallery Award of Excellence. Every year the Cedar Creek Gallery presents this award to a CDC Guild member. Last year the award went to Sandra McEwen.
Here is the description of the award:
"Sid and Pat Oakley started Cedar Creek Pottery and Gallery in 1968 on what used to be an old tobacco field. Today their daughter Lisa continues their legacy. The Gallery has evolved into one of the largest collections of fine crafts on the East coast featuring the work of over 200 of America's most accomplished craftsmen, including many of our CDCG exhibitors, whose work is on display and sold year round. The Award of Excellence is the mark of excellent work deserving of special recognition."

We are very honored to be presented this award by Lisa from Cedar Creek Gallery.

Back in the beginning of the summer we delivered some pieces there for their Art of the State exhibition. To see the two blog posts that we did about their wonderful gallery, go here, and here.
