Artisan of the Year 2009 – John Quinn

The Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Artisan Guild has named John  Quinn of Stoneware Etc. as ARTISAN OF THE YEAR. John is eminently worthy of this honor. He is a true folk artist who’s creations are museum quality, and we consider him to be a local treasure.

John’s work spans decades. Each piece is unique and “inhabits” special qualities that evoke humor and joy from adults and children alike. John will be the feature artist at Winter Fair and throughout the 2009 year.
