We entered 4 pieces this year in the El Dorado County Fair. Two were submitted today, June 8, 2016, in the “Crafts” division. One is a 12″ maple salad bowl titled “Planks” due to the raised pattern which resembles wood planks. The second piece is a 3″ black walnut calabash bowl with an Acoma-inspired design on the rim.
On June 9, 2016, two more pieces will be submitted in the Tech and Industrial division. One is a 6″ maple vessel with an Acoma-inspired design on the rim. The other piece is a warped, carved, dyed black walnut graft platter entitled, “From the Earth.” We’ll see how these pieces do in the local fair. Stay tuned!
