Artist, Craftsman
Award of Distinction Recipient
Presented by The Furniture Society
June 10, 2005

Ms. Mckie's award was presented by her friend and fellow furnituremaker Michael Hurwitz.

Judy McKie's work has achieved icon status in the field of studio furniture. Her universally regarded furniture is found in major museums in the U.S. and abroad where visitors and patrons alike admire this maker's fluid use of animal forms that flow perfectly into furniture pieces.Her equally distinguished work in carved abstract patterns provides an even broader canvas for her tables, chests, and mirrors. Judy's quiet manner is a perfect foil for the strength of her furniture, reflecting the deep well from which her ideas spring.
