Congratulations to the winners!
American Craft Week announced the winner, runners up and honourable mentions for the Paying Homage to the Number 10 - a fun competition to celebrate their 10th anniversary. Congratulations to the winner of the grand prize, Charlotte Arvelle from Mount Carroll, Illinois for her beautiful glass work. Her piece, "Crafting Under a Star Studded Sky," cleverly depicts the tools used by artists of the many craft disciplines.
Check out her piece, and see how many tools you can find, and how many 10's you can count!  Take time to see all the other great runners up and honourable mentions on the Showcase website. Congratulations to them all.
