The Artisans created over 20 plaques for Councilmember Vincent Gray's Ward 7 Constituent Services Recognition event on January 24th, 2006. We are grateful for his tireless dedication and support of Ward 7 residents, businesses and services - of which we are one! Also, many thanks to Comcast for their funding for these awards!

A close-up of some of the laser engraved cherry awards. They were each personalized using our original design and a custom logo provided my Councilmember Gray. Once engraved, they were color filled with black paint, to increase the contrast of the engraved text. In order to achieve this effect, each plaque was masked and painted through, and the masking was painstakingly removed by hand by Diante M., an AM Artisan. We enjoyed this project!
