From the Editor
We also hope you’ll join us in celebrating a group of remarkable people who have dedicated their time, attention, and extraordinary talent to craft. Once every two years, American Craft tells the stories of the recipients of the American Craft Council Awards, which are given to craft artists, scholars, curators, and advocates by their peers. This year, awards are being given to 20 people—about double the usual number—because the awards committee, made up of professionals in craft, simply wanted to honor more people. Among them are six recipients of the Gold Medal for Consummate Craftsmanship and eight new inductees to the College of Fellows, including Tip Toland, whose work appears on the cover of this issue.
Our wish is that we all can gather with our loved ones this fall, and that we can find comfort and joy in the many connections—both tangible and intangible—that craft offers.
