The League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s 2023 Annual Ornament, Through the Thicket, was created by League wood artist Kevin Turgeon. “I was inspired by an image with an optical illusion that gave a wooden sculpture the appearance of being turned at an angle,” says craftsman Kevin Turgeon,”and it got me thinking of ways that I could actually make the angle a reality.” Kevin Turgeon lives in Franklin, NH, and this is his first Annual Ornament created for the League.
Our 2023 ornament stands 4″ tall, is 1 1/2″ long and 7/8″ wide.
Every 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 is the League’s 36th Annual Ornament.
Each ornament is numbered as one of a limited edition and comes beautifully gift-boxed. The ornament is a thoughtful keepsake to mark any special occasion, milestone, or holiday. Each of these wooden ornaments uses seven species of wood and is hand finished and inscribed by the artist.
