Lynn has been working in clay for quite awhile but lately has been having a yen for fiber. The logical transition was to press fiber into clay. She discovered that weavings and crochet and lace make wonderful impressions in the clay surface. Now she has a whole new range of textures to explore!

Along with having a previous showroom on 5th Avenue in New York City, Kay’s work has appeared in Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset Magazine, Cheers, The Crafts Report, American Craft, The LA Times, the SF Chronicle and other well known publications. She was interviewed for SF radio station KCBS after being invited to create a Christmas tree ornament for the Clinton White House in 1996. Her work has been collected by many celebrities including Kelley Preston and John Travolta and Sandra Bullock. She was featured on HGTV “That’s Clever” television show in 2005.
Marilyn loves embroidery and the warm feel of beautiful wool fabrics. She still makes her signature pillows, ornaments and pincushions but has expanded to include albums with embroidered covers. Her creative stitchery enhances the album covers with pretty fabric-print pages that are hard to resist. It is hard to pick just one!
Glenda is a city girl who fell in love with wonderful country spaces. When she is not canning and making jelly, you can find her in the studio trying out different art supplies. Fabric dying and weaving have consumed her free time this year. After teaching art for many years, she is adding sparkle to her life finding out just exactly who she wants to be “when she grows up!”
I am really excited to share this new wing water basin. It holds just enough water for the birds to enjoy after the sprinklers have gone on and then dries out by afternoon so there is no mosquito larvae problem. It is also "stepable" meaning, you can use it for a garden stepping stone. This will certainly be a feature of HEAVEN AND NATURE SING, our Holiday Gift Open House. Opening weekend is November 5-7. We're open from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Robin is a lucky girl...she has a charming, patient, supportive husband, two fat, wiggly pugs (you cannot have a bad day when surrounded by pugs), a doting mother who taught her that she could do anything she sets her mind to, and she gets to do something she loves for a living! She loves to make things- it all starts with jewelry, but sometimes a brooch idea becomes a wall piece, sometimes earring ideas make better lamps so she has expanded her horizons. You could say she makes ornamentation for the body and home. Robin alsohas the pleasure of being a member of Eclectics, the artists co-op...could life be any sweeter?
Mah Jongg and vintage tiles are fascinate Linda because of their wonderful tactile feel and chunky fun appearance. She started making other items from Mah Jongg tiles, one-of-a kind necklaces and pins. She expanded to using dice and gaming chips in my designs as well. Recently I have been experiementing with small decorative vintage Christmas trees.

The more creative she is, the more creative she becomes. Ann has discovered that when she allows herself the time to create and to do the things she loves, it is all she wishes to do. It is fun to see the potential for artwork in found objects. Ann loves to reinvent and recycle license plates and finds great joy in putting new words and phrases together a sign together for a twist that sure to make someone happy.
