All this week, we’ve been giving you the inside scoop on how David Fernandez creates his clay art putters. We’ve been going through each step while telling you a little bit about the Art Fest by the Sea in Jupiter/Juno Beach. This weekend’s art festival, hosted by the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, has become a two-day tradition to kick off spring in South Florida.

David Fernandez is our featured artist for this year’s festival, and his clay art putters are custom-made and beautifully crafted, making for a unique gift or memento for the golf lover in your life. We told you yesterday how you can win: Enter the giveaway by going to the festival and visiting David’s booth. It’s that simple — no purchase necessary to win, but you do have to be present.

We showed you steps one through three over the past few days; today, the final product.

Step # 4: Fire and Glaze

Come to theĀ A1A Between Donald Ross Rd. and Marcinski in Juno Beach this weekend and meet some of the country’s best and brightest artists. With pieces to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets, whether you’re an art collector or art aficionado, there is something for everyone at the #ArtFestbytheSea: live music, food and everything from painting to jewelry in the creative spectrum. Everything is handmade and lovingly created in the U.S. by artists that were carefully chosen from thousands of applications.
