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.

My wife, the quilter, says I quilt with wood. My woodturnings, "pieced" from precise cuts of hardwoods, have a geometric "quilt block" appearance, with the pattern running through the entire piece's thickness. Interest in creating my own blanks, instead of using one piece of solid wood, began when I assisted a workshop on polychromatic segmented woodturning. The technique still endlessly fascinates me.
