Here are a few of the artists you will be able to meet this weekend:
The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Linda M. Cain. In the picture above, you will see daisy porcelain earrings, which have periwinkle petals with a yellow center against a soft yellow-green background. They are made of porcelain clay which is slab rolled out very thin and cut. Linda very carefully stamps the flower image into the clay, finishes it with glazes and fires it in her kiln. You can learn more about this artist HERE.
Next, we would like to introduce to you Randi Hodge. Randi’s company, Pie and Pop Culture, was inspired by her two children and the silly nicknames she gave them. All of her designs are inspired by her love for couture items and all things girly. When her daughter began dance class, that’s when her obsession with tutu’s was born! You can see more of her gorgeous collections HERE.
The final artist we are going to introduce to you today is Klaus Schuler. Klaus’ early union with lakes, rivers and fishing were to become the focus of his art. After receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art and Graphic Design from the University of Alabama, (Roll Tide), Klaus joined the Boeing Company at Kennedy Space Center in Florida where he illustrated many projects for the Space Program. Klaus left the industry to become a full-time fine artist in 1993. It wasn’t long before his subjects included scenes from the Bahamas and the Florida Keys. You can see more beautiful pieces of artwork from this artist HERE.
You will be able to meet the crafters mentioned above along with 100 other fantastic fine crafters from around the country.
