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.

This year’s ornament is Winter's Waltz (shown in column on right), a pair of ice skates handcrafted in pewter. Inspired by memories of ice skating in winters past, juried League member Walker Boyle used the ancient lost wax method of casting combined with modern metal working techniques to create this one-of-a-kind ornament. “I enjoy creating and bringing my pewter pieces to life. Each piece seems to take on a certain vibration and personality, and that’s what makes it fun,” says Walker.

Winter's Waltz ornaments are sold exclusively by the League of NH Craftsmen Fine Craft Galleries, the League’s online store, at the League headquarters on 49 South Main Street in Concord, and at the Annual League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair, August 5-13, 2017. Each ornament is numbered as one of a limited edition and has the artist's name. The ornament comes beautifully gift-boxed and sells for $28. Winter's Waltz is the League’s 30th Annual Ornament.
