About Bennett Awards & Studio
Bennett Collectibles is a part of the Bennett Awards family. Bennett Awards is a family business that is managed by the husband and wife team of Bob and Alice Bennett. The Bennett family has been in the awards and fine art business for over 40 years. Bennett Awards started as an adjunct operation of the Bennett family’s fine art gallery, Bennett Gallery, but, over the years, has evolved into a standalone business that provides unique, high-quality, handcrafted awards to customers across the globe. Unlike vanilla award companies and trophy shops, Bennett Awards’ fine art heritage can be seen in all of the stunning awards we create.
We didn’t start off as a traditional trophy shop, but rather a nationally-recognized sculpture studio and network of fine art galleries. This heritage is reflected in the quality, craftsmanship and design of all our awards. Unlike mass-produced plaques and trophies, our sculpture awards are handcrafted by a talented team of artisans. Our unique awards are true works of art that your recipients will proudly display for many years to come.
About Ashley Bennett-Stoddard
Ashley Bennett-Stoddard’s handcrafted pendants reflect her strong heritage in a variety of art forms and mediums. She is the daughter of the late, world-renowned sculptor Bob Bennett. Growing up in the Placerville home of her father, Ashley was exposed to art throughout her childhood. While at home, she apprenticed for her father, learning all aspects of sculpting, from initial design and modeling all the way through the casting process.
After high school, she attended The Academy of Art in San Francisco, further refining her sculpting skills while also developing a passion for painting. Ashley’s pendants are handmade “mini sculptures” that reflect her artistic lineage and the continuing evolution of her craft.
Each and every one of her pendants are are based on concepts that have significant meaning to Ashley, whether it be her commitment to a non-profit cause, raising awareness of a social issue, fostering personal growth and fulfillment, or reflecting on the beauty of nature and our planet. Ashley is also an accomplished painter, and her work can be found in public and private collections around the world.
“I am inspired by God, nature, community, and philanthropy. It is an amazing feeling to see people wearing my creations and making them their own. I feel blessed everyday to be able to create and do what I love.“
Keith Shannon, aka Keefer, an Air Force Brat of Irish decent, was born in Japan and presently lives in Truckee, California. Keefer creates a myriad of whimsical sculpted works, including his Reindeer Christmas Collection, the Noah’s Ark Collection, Moose Family, Goofballs, and more. His pieces are sculpted out of clay, then molded and reproduced in California out of 100% lead-free pewter. Each piece is hand finished by the artist, then stamped. Keefer’s attention to detail is remarkable. His characters bring out the child in everyone!
