Since 1990, Niche Magazine has sponsored an annual awards program to "recognize the outstanding creative achievements of American craft artists who produce work for craft galleries and retail stores." The competition is open to craftspeople working in Canada too.

In 2004, the competition was large -- over 1000 entrants in dozens of categories: furniture, turned wood, jewelry, ceramics, etc. This piece was selected as one of five finalists in the furniture category. I was very honoured to be in the company of the other makers selected -- some of whom I studied at college!

Niche Magazine is the major trade publication for craft retailers in the U.S. It provides business tips and profiles craftspeople to gallery owners.
