We are not always comfortable receiving awards. We work hard at what we do, constantly trying to improve. We were honored and humbled this weekend at The Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen Fine Craft Fair in Wilmington, Delaware to receive a Benchmark Award for Craft Excellence.
We were recognized in the Resolved Design category.
''...the design is resolved
and individual to the craftsman. Good composition is expected. The use
of tension and space enhance overall design. Choice of materials and
methods show innovation and mastery with all elements working together.
Reproduction of traditional work is acceptable. It must be authentic,
able to be documented, and built to the criteria of the medium’s
standards. Resolved design shows artistic excellence.''
We do not work to get awards, but they are a nice reminder of the hard work we put into each piece of furniture and everything we do at Bradford Woodworking.
Many thanks to everybody involved!
