ARTIST: Bobbie Austin

TITLE: Dove Whistle

MEDIUM: Clay

” I grew up making these whistles in rural North Carolina. All you need is a small lump of dirt, add some water to it to make a clay and you can make your own toy! 70 years later, I still think it’s magical! You can see a video of how I make them on the IFGT Youtube channel. The Art of Making Whistles: https://youtu.be/l596uvgDvOM

ARTIST: Sanaz Haghanin

TITLE: Wood Block Tissue Paper

MEDIUM: Paper

SIZE: 12 in X 30 in

PRICE: $ 30 – $40

“I cut the wood with a jigsaw. Then I roll an oil based etching ink onto the wood. I apply the tissue paper to the wood and lightly burnish. I like to hang the printed paper on the wall with spacers in between the wall and the paper. When mounted on the wall this way they will move with the slightest breeze.”

JoAnn Jancik Stained Glass

ARTIST: JoAnn Jancik
TITLE: Tall Agate Lamp
MEDIUM: Agate, Stained Glass
SIZE: 8 in X 8 in X 41 in
PRICE: $4,200.00

“I merge my love of stained glass and natural stone in these illuminated lamps. First I look at the stone, then I pair its various pieces of glass. Once I determine the size I then build the structure, soldering reinforcements throughout the skeleton to support the weight. Then I solder the elements together to form a panel and mount it onto the frame. I add the LED lighting to illuminate it. When I turn on the switch and the beauty of the agate shows through – it’s just magical!”

Jerry Maxey Vase

ARTIST: Jerry Maxey
TITLE: Tall Vase
MEDIUM: Rattan, Seagrass & Wood
SIZE: 13 in. X 17 in
PRICE: $500.00

“First I get the wood for the top and bottom. I turn it on a lathe and then once I get both pieces milled, I attach rattan spokes to form it into a cage. It takes me about 2 hours to do this. I used some old pecan wood that I found for the top and bottom of this vase. Then I just sit down and take the dyed seagrass and start weaving the grass through the rattan spokes. The patterns depend on how much of a color I have on hand and the overall size and shape of the piece. It took me 22 hours to weave this piece. When I’m finished weaving, I rub the whole piece with tung oil and it’s done!”

Hand Drum, Elk Skin

ARTIST: Guillermo Martinez
TITLE: Hand Drum
MEDIUM: Elk Hide & Hard Maple Laminate
SIZE:      18 in.
PRICE:   $200.00

“I make the drum with utmost care. I cut the lacing by hand so they are long and even. I lay the hide flat, smooth it out, cut to an appropriate size, punch the holes then stretch it over the frame. Then I begin the lacing. Sometimes while lacing I will sing, sometimes I will just hear the quiet. I make offerings of food and tobacco to Spirit.”

Nathan Favors-Manzanita Bowl

ARTIST: Nathan Favors
TITLE: Manzanita Bowl
MEDIUM: Manzanita Wood
SIZE: 16 in X 16 in
PRICE: $1250.00

“I start out with a piece of wood, study the shape, form and grain. Each piece of wood has to be air dried- the time it takes to dry tightens the grain and gives the wood its’ strength. Then I turn it by hand on a lathe to round it out. I like to retain as much of the natural edge as I can but each piece is different. Then I sand it with different grades of sand paper to get it smooth. These large bowls take a lot of muscle. Finally I finished it with 6 coats of oil. All together it takes 13 different steps to make a bowl.”
