LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Feb. 7, 2017) — Matthew and Karine Maynard, President and Vice President of Maynard Studios Inc. of Lawrenceburg, won five awards for outstanding craftsmanship in an international competition sponsored by the National Ornamental and Miscellaneous Metals Association (NOMMA). The event was open to over 530 member firms throughout the U.S. and over a dozen foreign countries.
The Maynard’s won the Gold award in the Furniture & Accessories- Forged; A Silver in Gates/ Doors- Nonforged; Gold in Art/Sculpture; Gold in Interior Railings- Forged; and earned one of the first two People’s Choice awards for their artistic balustrade interior hand forged railing. These entries were designed and created by the Maynards for private clients and Apiary’s Fine Catering event space in Lexington, Ky.
The presentation was made at a special event in San Antonio, Texas Feb. 5th, 2017 during NOMMA’s annual convention. The Ernest Wiemann Top Job Awards Competition is an annual contest that recognizes outstanding work in the ornamental and miscellaneous metals industry.
To win an award, entrants must submit photos and a description of their work. The material is then publicly displayed in a gallery where NOMMA member firms are given the opportunity to vote. Winning a Top Job award has special meaning, since it represents the “voice of approval” from industry peers.
NOMMA, headquartered in Forest Park, GA, is the trade association for the metals industry. Products produced by NOMMA members range from railings to driveway gates and include sculpture to light structural steel.
