The ACC is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2014 American Craft Council Awards, including the induction of seven individuals into its College of Fellows: William Carlson, John Gill, Michael Hurwitz, Jane Lackey, Bruce Metcalf, Judith Schaechter, and Tina Oldknow (Honorary Fellow); the selection of Fleur Bresler for the Aileen Osborn Webb Award for Philanthropy; the selection of The Clay Studio for the Award of Distinction; and the presentation of the 2014 Gold Medal for Consummate Craftsmanship to ceramicist Betty Woodman (COF 1993).

The prestigious American Craft Council Awards are presented biennially to honor those who have demonstrated outstanding artistic achievement, leadership, and service in the field of craft. 

Since 1975, the Council has bestowed the title of Fellow to artists and individuals nominated and elected by their peers. Those elected have demonstrated extraordinary artistic ability and must have worked for 25 years or more in the discipline or career in which they are recognized.

The Aileen Osborn Webb Award for Philanthropy recognizes exceptional contributions to and support of the field of craft, and the Award of Distinction recognizes an organization, institution, corporation, or individual who has made significant contributions to the field over a minimum of 25 years of service.

The Gold Medal for Consummate Craftsmanship, the highest recognition given by the Council, recognizes outstanding artistry while honoring the humanistic and philosophical values exemplified in the career of a previously elected Fellow.
