I have been working in glass since 1986. I was initially awed by the beauty of stained glass as a living medium which changes throughout the day. I design and craft panels for the window as well as bowls and plates.

Beth Schwartz Studio
I am a mixed media artist with eclectic interests. My studio is part art laboratory, part disaster area. What goes into my experiments? Hand cut collage, altered photographs, acrylic paint, clay, found objects and ink. What comes out the other end? An assortment of boxes, journals, mixed media wall pieces, assemblages, cards and prints. 15% OF MY SALES ARE DONATED TO HEALTH CARE FOR THE HOMELESS.
I make high-fired stoneware pottery for home and kitchen. I use a series of glazes I make myself . The glazes are Turquoise Matt (turquoise to green), Wensu (blue), Tenmoku (dark brown), Moonpax (whitish-orange), Yellow (Salt (yellow), and Shino (orange with carbon areas). Occasionally I have other glazes that I am experimenting with.
My work focuses on easy-to-wear, contemporary designs, using a variety of different materials and geometric shapes. Current work includes coiled wire necklaces with beads that I make from straight wire, pewter and stone necklaces and bracelets, kumihimo woven necklaces, multi-strand necklaces, beaded brick stitch woven earrings, shaped wire earrings, plus a large variety of other earrings. All earrings have sterling silver earwires. I also offer a bead restringing service.

Cathy's Custom Jewelry
I’m a self- taught jewelry artist. I started Cathy’s Custom Jewelry in 2003. My hand crafted designs are made using silver and gemstones. I select stones based on their shape, color and natural beauty which draw me in and encourage my senses. I use a number of different techniques and tools to mold and shape the metals and to create elements for my designs. I also use cast, purchased or reclaimed objects as part of my designs. Those elements help make each piece unique.
I have been a woodcarver and cabinetmaker for nearly 50 years. Largely self-taught, I began relief carving as a hobby in school, and have since combined carving with traditional joinery to produce a variety of tables, desks, cabinets, boxes and mirror frames.

Handweaving By Jane Anthony
Handweaving has been a part of my life since the early 70s. It combines my love of crafts with my background in art history. I became totally absorbed and tantalized by the possibilities that weaving offers during weaving workshops at the Mannings and the Brooklyn Museum Art School. Weaving combines texture, pattern, and color in ways that are not possible in other media. I enjoy the challenge of weaving traditional or modern patterns, often combining them in an individual piece.
Decorative Arts, Mixed Media Arts, Woodworking
I turn acrylic-handled pens and kitchen objects on my lathe. My work combines an eye for traditionally beautiful patterns, contours, and proportions with a bold sense of color. I channel that into creating useful household items that offer a ray of sunshine to our everyday activities. I also stitch temari that will brighten any corner of a room.
