Annual Ornament

Each year our juried members vie for the honor of creating the League's Annual Ornament. They submit their work and a selection is made by a specially chosen committee. This tradition began in 1988, and the Annual Ornament has become a must-have holiday treasure.

The League of NH Craftsmen’s annual ornament for 2015 is Sweet Season, a cast and hand-formed pewter maple sugar tree adorned with a sap bucket, made by Kristine Lane and Paulette Werger, both juried in metal. Kristine and Paulette created the ornament to
celebrate New Hampshire’s spring-time tradition of maple sugaring.

Sweet Season ornaments are sold exclusively by the League of NH Craftsmen Fine Craft Galleries, in the League's online store, and at
the Annual League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair, August 1-9, 2015. Each ornament is numbered as one of a limited edition and is signed by the artists. The ornament comes beautifully gift-boxed and sells for $25.
