    CRAFT IN AMERICA, the Peabody Award-winning documentary series, is an inspirational journey to the artists, objects, techniques, and origins of American craft. NATURE celebrates the beauty, inspiration, and future of the American landscape and challenges viewers to reassess their relationship with the natural world.

    Internationally acclaimed sculptor Patrick Dougherty of North Carolina is committed to environmental issues and his large scale installations stimulate the imagination and invite exploration.

    Woodcarver Michelle Holzapfel uses New England’s hardwoods to create work that honors Mother Nature at her finest, inspiring fanciful creations – sculpted boxes, bowls, and unusual trompe l’oeil pieces.

    Iowa fiber artist Mary Merkel-Hess makes sculptural works with paper, reed, and paint, creating Landscape Reports that import a sense of place and containment.

    Tlingit glass artist Preston Singletary captures the motion and magnificence of wild creatures in molten glass which he then embellishes with symbols and designs from his Tlingit heritage.

    In Shelton, Washington, Catherine Alice Michaelis designs and prints broadsheets and books that are tactile, thoughtful, sensual, and imaginatively folded paper sculptures
