"New Business of the Year:

New and creative business is critical to the growth and sustainability of our small regional towns. Our recipient of the New Business of the Year Award holds a very strong artisan spirit, a love of his family tradition, and at the same time, the courage to take a new path.  The beauty of using raw, sustainable materials and minimizing environmental impact is deeply appreciated by our community residents and visitors, and represents the brand of Vermont. The New Business of the Year comes from three generations of inspiration in raw materials, including clay, glass and now wood, drawing upon simplicity and natural curves. We're proud to award the New Business of the Year to Andrew Pearce Bowls."
