Christina Goodman's hand-painted raven faces left in strict profile, and despite the miniature scale carries the flavor of Renaissance portraiture in the sober expression and fine detail. It's one of her contributions to a small collection of handmade jewelry celebrating Baltimore and Maryland icons. The ravens, crabs, white oaks, orioles, black-eyed Susans and Edgar Allan Poes were on view this weekend as thousands of browsers and buyers strolled through the Baltimore Convention Center for the American Craft Council Show, its 38th year in the city.

Every year at the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore, rows and rows of handmade material sit in booths for on-lookers to gaze at and admire. And behind the uniquely crafted jewelry and perfectly glazed ceramic pieces sits an artist, whose work on each piece is extensive. The artists spend hours designing their collections, carving their materials and sewing their pieces together. The show returns to the Baltimore Convention Center this weekend to showcase more 650 craft artists from all over the country.

THERE'S CHAOS in David Paul Bacharach's metalsmith studio. More so than usually. Oh sure, there's the familiar clutter of metal scraps and wood shavings strewn about the floor, art material piled high against the walls and tools scattered around. These days though, there's an added frenzy. It's less than a week before the 25th annual American Craft Council Craft Show, and dozens of pieces of work - from jewelry and intricately woven copper vessels to chairs, console tables and massive sculptures - are awaiting the Cockeysville artist's final inspection before being shipped off to the Baltimore Convention Center.

For 15 consecutive Februarys, the American Craft Council show has brought warmth to Baltimore. During that time, the event has also become an institution.It was a dreary and cold night in 1976 that I recall the first craft show, which was held at the south end (now demolished) of the old Civic Center. As usual, then-Mayor William Donald Schaefer was championing the event as a plus for the city. I was skeptical, but left the exhibition hall considerably poorer and carrying two shopping bags full of purchases.

Because investors want to see growth, much of the talk surrounding Under Armour in the first half of the year focused on areas like women's gear and non-cleat footwear. The company's share of those arenas is still minuscule, its marketing efforts still in nascent stages. But Under Armour knows not to stray too far from the sport -- and the feel -- that helped it grow into a $2 billion a year enterprise. It also knew whose influence it wanted to infuse any new football campaign with: former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

About 50 vendors will be there selling items in a variety of media, including paintings, plush toys, soaps, repurposed clothing and pottery. Michael Bracco, one of the founding members of the Charm City Craft Mafia, which organized the event, said that while he mostly targets 18- to 35-year-olds, he also finds unexpected customers for his Spaghetti Kiss science fiction-themed apparel at the show.

Walking through a giant hall in the Baltimore Convention Center, Susan Johnson and Sherry Mills stopped to admire a bronze-and-steel sculpture with water cascading out of it. "I need this," Mills said. "You may want to come around this side first," Johnson said, nodding at a sticker announcing the water feature's $18,000 price. The sculpture by San Francisco artist Michael Szabo was among the many pricey items at the American Craft Council show this weekend. Others among the 650 crafts people at the event were showing high-end jewelry, paintings, furniture and glassware, with prices reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars.

They may look like simple iron candlesticks, tall and thin. But for interior designer Elizabeth Cross-Beard Marsh, they were more than just a decoration or a lighting accessory. They were an inspiration, for a room of soft beiges and abstract art. "I just fell in love with those candlesticks," says Marsh, one of 11 designers from the Mid-Atlantic whose works - each inspired by a unique piece of craftsmanship - will be on display at the Baltimore Convention Center next weekend as part of the 37th annual American Craft Council Show.
