"Jan Hopkins Often figurative, Hopkin’s sculptural baskets push the envelope using unusual natural materials (such as citrus and cantaloupe peels, and silver-dollar seed pods) seamlessly combined with traditional basket materials (such as waxed linen and cedar bark)."

So, more amazing finds from Ornament Magazine!

Ford/Forlano Art Jewelry:

In the magazine there is this amazing necklace made from this texture above.
Ahh..here it is:

But also, look at these:

And of course appealing to my own heart I came across the hats of Diane Harty. Glen Brown describles them as 'Hats for Literal and Metaphorical Travels'. Check them out!

The Traveler's Hat

How cute are those little luggage pieces?

I was looking through American Craft Magazine (http://www.craftcouncil.org/)
and I really want to go to GoggleWorks (http://www.goggleworks.org/) It looks like an incredible centre for the arts.
I have really been wanting to take a ceramic/pottery class lately and I think once I finish unpacking and decorating my house and things start to level out I will do so. I came across the work of Connie Roberts - http://www.portalsgallery.com/Artists/Roberts/connie.htm
Truly amazing!!

Oh, and the delicious jewelry of Carla Reiter is amazing:

An excellent opportunity for all artsy craft people: http://craftemergency.org/

Lately whenever I head over to the library, I cannot help but pick up an issue of Ornament Magazine. It is really amazing. Check it out: http://www.ornamentmagazine.com/home.html

A few great finds from Ornament Magazine today were:

Kristen Frantzen Orr
These are probably some of the most incredible beads I have ever seen!

And..more yummy beads can be found at Sandbloom Glass

And on to the amazing artists!
I found Angelina DeAntonis of Ocelot Clothing.
What an incredible fiber artist. I really love the lines and circles in these designs. Amazing!

And..in looking for works by Jana Brevick, an incredible metalsmith, I came across this site:
They have an exhibit called '200 rings' - rings by artists all over the world. Amazing!!
Speaking however of Jana Brevick - I could not find a website for her but I was captivated by her robots. I did find this article that talks at length about her though:

"Jana Brevick has been cited in Metalsmith magazine as one of the six most progressive jewelry artists in the United States. She studied fashion and jewelry design before returning to the University of Washington in the 1990s for a degree in metal design. (December 15, 2005)

This is a little image of one of the impressive robots:

And..thats all for now as I have to get back to spinning...but more later.

It has been a while since this blog has been updated. Goodness me!

As I was cleaning up my desk today I found all the brochures for the amazing artists I was able to see while in Baltimore at the American Visionary Art Museum. I went to this event:

Saturday, November 25, 2006: Bazaart: An Artful Shopping Extravaganza
A Holiday Marketplace of original creations by fifty regional artists and craftspeople. Plus, artful demonstrations and hands-on workshops in the Jim Rouse Visionary Center classrooms by some of your all-time favorite visionaries.

There were fantastic artists there and I was really overwhelmed. Here are a few of my favourites:

Marilyn Andrews - http://www.americanpotters.com/gallery.tpl?ID=1161488590487784
This is a fantastic artist, a teapot maker and sculptor. This is one of my favourite pieces:

William Skrips - http://www.wmskrips.com/
I fell instantly in love with the work of this man with its unique folk inspired interest. His pieces were chunky and amazing with so much personality. One of my favourites of his work:

Danamarie Hosler - http://www.greenstarstudio.com/
I loved this girl, first of all because she was cute and commented on my skirt - so you know she is just an artsy soul. But the real highlight of course if her AMAZING illustration work and knitted animals. Here are one of her knits:

Red Prairie Press - http://www.redprairiepress.com/art.php
Lovely paintings and block prints

Tiffany Ownbey - http://www.tiffanyownbey.com/
This artist was really cool and I loved her work! It is papier mache sculpture and really quirky and unique.

So, check out these galleries and artists because they are amazing!

This is amazing!

"Modern master Franc Grom creates and sells eggs that may outshine the 19th-century Russian jeweler’s Easter bling. Shown at work on Wednesday in Vrhnika, Slovenia , Grom uses an electric boring tool to drill approximately 2,500 to 3,500 holes in an eggshell. Inspired by traditional Slovenian designs, he has been known to pierce a shell as many as 17,000 times. Easter eggs were reportedly first decorated in the 13th century. Christian authorities long ago forbade the eating of eggs during the days before the holiday. Eggs laid then took on special significance and came to represent the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, as told in the Bible."
