This year I attended the American Craft Council show in SF for the first time and was amazed by the talented artisans showcasing their creative, handmade work of art. There was everything from wool felt bags by Audrey Modern, hand-pleated paper sculptures by Erik and Martin Demaine, fine reclaimed woodworking from Elliot Stith, intricate ceramic porcelain by Jennifer McCurdy, clothing, jewelry, and much much more! Also, this year at the ACC show, there was a special decor exhibition called “Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft.” Six bay area designers created entertaining spaces using a suite of fine craft from the show. From cocktails in the kitchen to an outdoor oasis, the designers vignettes incorporated local artisans work to bring texture, color, and everyday materials into the space.
Below are some of the unique, creative, and handcrafted work showcased at the American Craft Council.
