Bravo to Maria White who received the Award of Excellence from the American Craft Council at its recent show in San Francisco for her elegant ceramics.
The ACC–in case you don't know, and you should if you have any interest in design–is a nonprofit educational organization promoting awareness and appreciation of contemporary American crafts. It does so through a wonderful array of programming around the country, as well as a relevant magazine that definitely deserves your subscription.
Maria studied sculpture in Italy and at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine, and her pots have received top placement from the American Ceramic Society
and other craft guilds.
Though she lives in Hollywood, she hasn't lost her honeyed South Carolina twang, making her and her work all the more irresistible.
We've been thrilled to champion Maria's pots and pendants at A+R, and her annual holiday trunk shows are always a great time because she surprises us and her collectors with one-offs.
There are more instore than what's on our site, and we promise to get more online soon enough.
