Welcome to the Southern Highland Craft Guild
Since 1930, artists from Maryland to Alabama have come together to create a network and market for mountain craftspeople. Today, Guild membership stands at more than 900 artisans selected by a jury for the high quality of design and craftsmanship. The Southern Highlands continues to inspire and lead the craft revival movement.

When I start a new carving, I study the wood for a long time before cutting into it. Achieving a great result requires reading the wood carefully. If you do it properly, it will guide you in bringing the critter inside to life. It takes many hours to finish each sculpture, but it's a trip that makes my pulse race, and keeps me coming back.
