Gold Medal for Consummate Craftsmanship
Joyce J. Scott (Baltimore, Maryland)
Every two years, one Fellow is recognized as a Gold Medalist, an award for a lifetime of achievements. It is the highest award given by the Council. Gold Medal awardees represent the extraordinary among a field of elite craftspeople. The significance cannot be overstated, and the value of material related to the individuals has proportional importance to the preservation and scholarship of American craft. Awardees are nominated by the College of Fellows and selected by the American Craft Council board of trustees.
