Artist Listing

Michael West

Wooden utilitarian bowls, from tree to table. I start with the log from storm damaged trees or trees that need to be removed, saw the log into wood blanks, rough turn them, coat them in a wax and allow them to dry for at least two years, then bring them back out and finish them to sell to customers for years of enjoyment as heirlooms. I also make treenware or wooden kitchen utensil,s to go along with the bowls. These items include spoons, spatulas, flipper, rolling pins and cutting boards all treated with a walnut oil with is food safe.

Theresa Mayer

I make glass beads, each bead is individually made in a process known as Lampworking. Rods of glass are heated over a flame until the glass reaches a molten stage. The glass is then wrapped around a stainless steel mandrel and layered to create the desired design. The bead is removed from the flame, placed in a klin and annealed, then slowly cooled to prevent cracking. When the bead is completely cooled it is removed from the mandrel and cleaned.
