We were very pleased to have one of our original designs recognized as a finalist for the 2017 NICHE Awards in the Wood Décor category. This competition was established in 1989 by NICHE magazine to celebrate excellence and innovation in American and Canadian fine craft.
"Nearly 2,000 entries are received each year from professional and student craft artists from across the U.S. and Canada. Each year, a prestigious panel of judges is selected by the editors of NICHE magazine, including gallery owners, guild and museum directors, curators, craft industry experts and arts advocates. After the judging process is complete, and counts are tallied, the top-scoring pieces—5 in each category—become NICHE finalists. Out of these five, the highest-scoring piece in each category wins the NICHE award."
