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.

Doug Lacher creates his unique lamps, sconces, and sculpture from solid hardwood and from hardwood veneer selected for grain pattern, color tone, and translucence. His original technique and organic, bent wood forms are combined to create finely wrought furnishings that radiate a warm, dramatic glow. In addition he creates turned vessels and clocks from Southern Appalachian hardwoods.
