We honor those who use their artistic vision and craftsmanship to make unique creations. Master bladesmith Bill Burke forges various steel alloys to create high-performance Damascus knives that are remarkably strong and beautiful.

Mixed-media artist Ashley Delonas uses her hunting skills to track down antler sheds for her creations. The abandoned crowns from moose, elk and deer find new life in her hands as she builds a story with crystals and stained glass between the tines of bone.
