Last month Saks Fifth Avenue hosted a holiday artisanal showcase focusing on the artistry and craftsmanship found in its luxury home department’s product assortment.

Designer Jay Strongwater; Mackenzie-Childs CEO Norina Coursey; and Lillian August’s President and CEO Dan Weiss and Senior Designer Thom Bellucci appeared in interactive demonstrations in tandem with master craftsman exhibitions from Joy to the World, Radko, Baccarat, Herend, Rizzoli, Mrs. John L. Strong and Glass Eye. Guests enjoyed live chair painting, ornament molding, metal techniques and handpainting of china.

“Saks Fifth Avenue’s home department is rich with handcrafted products perfect for holiday decorating and gift-giving,” said Eric Jennings, vice president and fashion director, men’s and home. “We’re thrilled to provide customers with the opportunity to enjoy the breadth of Saks’ artisanal assortment firsthand.”
