The Joy of Giving American Crafts

With eye-popping gifts from $5 – $50 – $500+ showcasing the work of both emerging and established artists, An American Craftsman has become a destination for both first-time buyers and seasoned collectors from around the world.

With a previous location on the Upper West Side and current locations at 1375 Sixth Avenue (between 55th and 56th streets) and in Lenox, MA, the shop offers an ever-changing collection of pieces made from wood, clay, fiber, metal, glass, leather and mixed media. Items range from unusual gifts to furniture, sculptures, glass, jewelry and beyond.

An American Craftsman was founded by Richard & Joanna Rothbard as an exhibition space for contemporary American artists in 1980, with its first location opening in Greenwich Village. Richard and Joanna are still the proprietors of the business, and Richard also happens to be the world’s foremost puzzle box maker.
