I was delighted and honored last week to receive an Award of Merit for the Garden Bench at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft's biannual CraftTexas show. Honestly, I was shocked to have been mentioned at all. If you haven't seen the show yet, I would highly recommend stopping by HCCC to have a look. Some of my personal favorites were two amazing chairs by my friend (and fellow Houston woodworker) Roger Deatherage, my friend (and Award of Merit winner) Katherine Rayroud's mind-boggling paper-cut silhouette, and Gary Schott's tiny, wonderful machines.
