Frederick artist Cameron Petke, MFA ’10 is known for his wheel-thrown ceramic temple bells as well as handcrafted tableware and interior design pieces. An outstanding artist, he was selected as one of 50 finalists in the ceramics category for the 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Award. He, along with nearly 5,000 others across the country, was nominated earlier this month for the award, which celebrates craftspeople working in their communities.
Here’s where you can help. Online voting from now until Oct. 13 will determine which 10 artists will be featured in Martha Stewart Living magazine and attend a media event with Martha Stewart in New York City in November.
