Admissions . Contest . Guidelines + Category Descriptions . Craft Category
The Craft Category includes, but is not limited to:
- Craft is a term that is used to describe the family of decorative and functional art, which includes but is not limited to studio pottery, metal work, wood-turning, glass blowing, jewelry, and fiber arts.
- Examples of craft include ceramic bowls and plates, jewelry, rugs, hand woven cloth, glass drinking vessels, and wooden objects made by hand.
- Ceramics represent work that is created from clay, and can include work that is turned, slab-built, coiled, or otherwise constructed. Ceramic work may or may not be fired in a kiln. Ceramic work is frequently object-oriented, but frequently is wall-mounted.
- Examples include plates, bowls and mugs, vases and vessels, and tile and ceramic relief sculpture.
- Glass is an amorphous, non-crystalline solid material that is used to create glass art and studio glass, as well as utilitarian applications like the glass in our homes and cars.
- Glass artisans create work using many techniques, including glass blowing, casting/slumping of molten glass, stained-glass work, cold-processes (like etching and cutting on solid glass), and flame working (manipulation of rods of glass).
Jewelry + Metals
- Jewelry + Metals is a discipline of small-scale work designed for personal adornment or sculptural presentation. Traditional jewelry and metals are created from working with gemstones, precious metals, beads, shells, and plastic. Increasingly, artists working in jewelry and metals are using digital processes to create small-scale works using new materials.
- Examples include necklaces, bracelets, rings, and belts. Many jewelry and metal work incorporates fiber as it relates to wearable art.
