Collaborative Turning Project
By Carol Hall
In January, our bowl named "27 Animals, 3 Artists" won the coveted 2016 Niche Award for Painted/Colored Wood. This honor is the craft world's equivalent to an Emmy or an Oscar. It is professionally judged, with nearly 2,000 American and Canadian applicants vying to be named the best in their category. This bowl was an early collaboration between myself, Michael Kehs and Dan Greer.
