"Celebrating the Creative Spirit of America"
The magnificent National Building Museum is the setting for the Smithsonian Craft Show.
Widely regarded as the country's most prestigious juried show and sale of fine American Craft, the 2012 Smithsonian Craft Show celebrates its 30th Anniversary. Ceramics, glass, embroidery, beadwork, leather, woodwork, furniture, mixed media… if it’s considered a craft, it will be represented among the 120 hand-picked artists. Eco-artist Erwin Timmers was selected to exhibit at this year's show - one of the 120 from the field of 1300 artist applicants.
Erwin Timmers has been working on some new sculptural forms made from cast recycled glass. His work is informed with both wit and beauty, and his glass artwork celebrates the richness of shape, texture and translucency of glass.Be sure to see Erwin's bold new colors and forms being created from recycled material - as featured in the Washington Post's Magazine article that came out this summer.
