Great American Artisans Project
A Great American Artisan is someone who has created artworks that, in theory, could be used for a practical purpose, but are often viewed as art. Over a period of more than twenty years, I've traveled the United States in search of people who're not just artists, but artisans at the top of their craft, often well known to others in their field. Many were found by reference of others in the same field.
The names on the left are creators of fine instruments, leathers goods, furniture and more - many of which will surprise and educate you with previously unknown facets of our America. All of whom bring their unique artist's talent to their craft.
