Judith, Jerry, Adrian and River Lovenstein
After apprenticing broom making at the Ozark Folk Center, Jerry Lovenstein established his family business in 1978. He is recognized as a Master Artisan by the Arkansas Arts Council and is their recipient of a 2000 Fellowship Award.

The brooms are handmade in the traditional Puritan/Shaker style using authentic century-old tools. They are composed of sustainably grown and hand-harvested sassafras handles with broomcorn sweeps. Many brooms serve as canvases on which Jerry carves Spirit faces on the handles and his wife Judy embroiders the sweeps, adding beauty without sacrificing traditional integrity. The Lovensteins are keeping the handmade tradition alive by passing the craft to son, Adrian, and, in turn, to grandson, River.

A well-crafted broom, like tradition, stands on its own. For information, visit http://www.grassycreekbrooms.com.
