Mary Burnley: Fine jewelry has become a mainstay in the Gallery, and Mary Burnley’s beautiful metalic jewelry is very popular. Copper jewelry shaped as leaves, peapods, and other forms from nature are both eye-catching and graceful. It is little wonder that her one-of-a-kind pieces sell so well.
Mary BurnleyBen Hammond: Ben's functional ceramic art uses full earthtones in the creation of distinctive pitchers, bowls, and other useful pieces. His works show strength and a love of the texture that only rich clay can give.
Ben HammondBob Jones: Bob is known for his turned wood pieces that are functional yet extremely beautiful. His pens, fashioned from a variety of woods, make popular gifts. His style is traditional and blends well with the variety of containers he also creates. The woods he works with are beautifully grained.
Bob JonesSebastian Moh: Sebastian creates delicate mugs, teacups and bowls from porcelain. His work has the look and feel of fine china. The light shines through the porcelain in an amazing way. Sebastian is a remarkable craftsman.
Sebastian MohNathan Newby: Nathan makes exquisite glassware - both blown and kiln-worked. The pastel colors bring out the beauty of his designs. His pendants, blown balls, vases, and more have been very popular and have often been purchased as gifts.
