sally gierke potteryMy work is rooted in utilitarian and decorative pottery. I am interested in working with various clays, such as earthenware, porcelain, and stoneware. The surfaces are embellished with textures, carved designs, stamped impressions, colored slips, altered and slab attachments, and wax resist.
Scotts Fine ArtI work alone in every aspect of my process in studio. This includes in part the initial capture, RAW image conversion, post work and preparation for my own printing process. I feel producing my own work from start to finish affords me the opportunity to be very precise in the digital darkroom, a level of control I never felt I had in the chemical darkroom. The basic concept of the dodge and burn process I still very much use today in the digital process.

The techniques we use to create contemporary yet wearable pieces are: Soldering, hand-hammering, high-polishing, chasing, repoussé, oxidizing.
Martha Sperry DesignsInspired by nature I often capture an image in watercolor and then paint it in oils in the studio. Painting saturated colors in full sunlight allows me to extend the life of a particular moment in time.
Copper Horse WoodworksI use the finest woods in my works, making one piece at a time. No two have ever been the same. I sand each down to 320 grit or better. I use a host of finishes to make the work unique. I hand rub each with 000 steel wool and wax. Finely each is dated & hand singed.
Dale CantrellAll of my windchimes and mobiles are made from natural materials. I use natural stone that I cut and hand polish. Examples of stone used are agate, jasper and obsidian. Examples of woods used are Zebrawood from Africa, Spalted Maple from Ohio, Sapele from South America.

Ivy WoodroseThe framework for each piece of jewelry is fabricated from sterling silver rectangle wire and sheet. The inlaid images are textured fine silver. Over the images, colored epoxy resin is applied one color at a time using a needle tipped syringe. Each color is cured in a hot box for two hours. Once all the color is applied and cured a clear resin fills the frame.
Twisted Tree GalleryMy tree sculptures are aluminum and copper wire. I use wood and slate as bases, frames and contrasting elements. The trees are all hand twisted. My woodwork is made of many species. many found in the woods and sawmills.
