Ceramics

Fred and Susan Borthwick

Fred and I have been involved in ceramics for over 30 years. Our current studio was built in 2003 on 15 acres outside of Carroll, Ohio. Fred has a Master of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics and Sculpture from The University of Notre Dame. I have a Master of Arts degree in Art Education from The Ohio State University and currently teach art at a local high school. Both of us majored in Ceramics and graduated from Columbus College of Art and Design with Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees. Ceramics has been a major part of our lives and has included teaching, selling and exhibiting our work throughout Ohio. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to produce both functional and decorative items for your home and gardens. – Susan Borthwick

Michael Schael

I realized early on that I was not the sort for working a 9 to 5 job.  I needed to work with my hands. I attended university originally planning to study to landscape architecture /ornamental horticulture.  After 2 years, a shift occurred and I began to use my hands in a very different way. Rather than switch schools, I switched my major and eventually received a Masters in  Rehabilitation Counseling, specializing in working with the deaf. For the next 5 years I worked as a counselor and interpreter.

Yet I still needed to play in the mud.

After several years of playing at potting, I decided to really give it a go. I voyaged to Europe hoping to support myself during my trip. Six years later and returning to the States,  I had become a journeyman potter. All told, I had worked in over a dozen different workshops in 4 countries; for periods of a several weeks to 8 months

Paddy and Greg Skwira

Unlike most art, pottery is meant to be touched. That makes the surface of a pot an intriguing place to play and experiment. Carving, slip trailing and handmade stamps make that suface a record of decisions, experiments, whimsy, experience and accident that are unique to each pot.

When you use a well made pot you should feel some of the energy that went into its creation. The gestures of the potter’s hand, captured in the fired clay, make that particular pot unlike any other. That human connection is something no machine-made pot, however well designed, can provide. And in a world ever more mechanized and impersonal, this human connection seems increasingly important

We focus on pieces used for cooking, serving, eating, drinking and entertaining — the communal experience of sharing food, drink and time with friends and family. We want our pots to enhance your home and the time you share with the people who are important to you.

Rebecca Rea

From the beginning the foundation of ceramics is amazing to me. Being able to transform a ball of clay out of the earth, into a solid functional form is an incredible feeling. This process is where the lofty ideas in my mind become substantial, beautiful works of art. 

I am a functional potter. Everything is meant to be used, to hold something precious, or even become a home for something living. It is designed to sooth the mind and dazzle the eye. To fill the world with color that never fades. The subtle edges and fluent glaze lines provide an enjoyable flowing serenity. Each piece has a fragile durability that will span time if cared for just right.

Sumiko Takada

Sumiko Takada has been working with clay for over 15 years. She has studied in Japan with Yasunori Nishio and Jun Terada both in Komaki, Aichi and in the United States at Worthington Community Center and Columbus College of Art & Design.

Sumiko creates her functional work with stoneware that is fired to cone 6 in oxidation. Her inlaid pieces are painstakingly crafted by hand: first carving the designs on the ware, then filling them with colored slip, and finally cleaning up the excess slips. She also uses slip decorations and various glazes of her own formula in her work.

Wet & needle felting. Layers of loose wool fibers, wet with warm soapy water are rolled to shrink into a piece of fabric.

Kelley Skillin

My love for fabric is reflected in my work. I can sit for hours choosing the textures, colors, and prints that go into each piece. Even the thread is chosen to complement the overall look. I do all of the pattern making, designs, cutting, and sewing. From the bricks in the doorstops to the fabric on the pillows, I upcycle and transform materials using techniques from a century ago. The raw edge applique adds character to each piece and mimics how fabric would have frayed before glues and stabilizers were used.

All of my pillows and doorstops are made using high quality vintage and new upholstery fabrics, with bits of upcycled apparel and quilting fabrics for facial features. Buttons are sourced from around the world and made from A variety of materials, including coconut shells, abalone, metals, and wood. I particularly enjoy working with prints and frequently use fabrics with different aesthetics (e.g., a futuristic print with a vintage brocade) to blend ​into a new style all my own.

Debi Dwyer

Debi Dwyer, a native of New Hampshire, left the chilly north for the sunny shores of Florida, and the natural surroundings of the area greatly influenced her desire to become a stained glass artist, capturing the beauty in her original designs.  What started as a hobby while she was otherwise engaged raising her two sons, has evolved into a fulltime lifestyle.

Some of Debi’s favorite themes are fantasy fairies, dragonflies and butterflies, where the choices of her glass and jewels make her art stand out and earn her commissions as well as purchases at the shows themselves.  Her love of the ocean is depicted frequently in original pieces of artwork that catch the eye and impress the observer with her wonderful flowing lines and authentic captivation of the nature she is surrounded by wherever she has chosen to roost.  Also breathtaking are the amazing lamps that she creates, using some of the most expensive glass at hand to turn these projects into true works of art.

Richard Bond

Original artwork created by sandblasting pieces of multicolored and/or clear glass, using hand cut and/or liquid resist to control the sandblast.

My art is an expression of my love for nature and my fascination for the patterns and design forms revealed in the natural environment. From representational to completely abstract, and frequently a melding of both, my work seeks to reveal an organic energy found in the natural environment. Glass is a critical component to this expression; its innate, organic, flowing movement, energy and color are sympathetic to this goal.

Do you struggle to find jewelry that expresses your inner personality without overdoing it in the workplace?

Marilyn Cook

By using the technique of metal-smith hand fabrication (soldering, etc.), sterling silver sheet, wire, precious and semi-precious gems and natural stones evolve into individually designed jewelry art.

Marilyn Richey

Each piece of my antique costume jewelry contains a vintage Victorian antique button, dating from 1880 – 1910, which was selected based on its artistic beauty, authentic materials, and age.  Every antique button has a history and story to it.  Many of the buttons are pictures from opera scenes, fairy tales, and mythology or city settings. The buttons are made from authentic materials such as brass, Mother of Pearl, glass, silver-lustered glass, steel, pewter, silver, enamel, ivory, and bone.  The methods used to make these buttons were cloisonné, champlevé, stamping, molding, and casting, and were tinted, gilded, painted, and engraved.  These unique antique buttons become the centerpiece of the Victorian jewelry and are hand-set in a sterling silver clasp with lock.

The design of each unique handmade jewelry, from our Victorian necklaces to our fabulous vintage bracelets, starts with the button‘s characteristics; color, size and pattern or picture and, based on those characteristics, is beaded with gemstones (onyx, agate, quartz, turquoise, jasper, jade, moonstone, coral, or opal) and/or fresh water pearls.  The custom jewelry piece is handcrafted for the discriminating, sophisticated buyer who is searching for a special, collectible, work of art that can
be worn.

Jay Ashrafi

Javad Ashrafi studied architecture at the National University of Tehran and received a master’s degree in 1978. He then came to Columbus, Ohio in 1985 to attend The Ohio State University and graduated with another master’s degree, this time in city planning. Since 1988 Ashrafi has worked as a planner/architect at various architectural firms in Columbus Ohio. His focus is on the artistic aspects of architecture, architectural rendering, building models, interior design, sculpture and painting.

In recent years, Ashrafi began showing his architecturally inspired art throughout the country. His work incorporates a variety of materials including copper, aluminum, paper, gold foil, wire mesh, wood and various recycled materials, namely auto parts. These materials are collaborated over sand based backgrounds on canvas and transparent layers of paint are applied to the work in many stages.

His “Cityscape” artwork was the winner of the Ohio Arts Council Community Partnership Program award in the summer of 2012 and is installed at PNC Bank’s Columbus Corporate Offices.

Ashrafi also has a passion for Persian classical music—he teaches in Columbus and has lectured to music students at universities across Ohio. Since 1988 he has performed at concerts in Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Indianapolis. Ashrafi was the recipient of the Ohio Arts Council Grant for Apprenticeship for five years.

Rosemary Crisci

My inability to find a beautiful and special note card to write “Thank You” notes prompted me to design and paint my own. My love of nature inspired the florals. (And life has inspired the rest.) Since I started painting the note cards, I have expanded my line of floral designs to include contemporary designs, Christmas cards, glassware, and hand-painted boxes, as well as Oils on Canvas.

My Oils come in a variety of sizes. The depth and intensity of color is achieved by layering various hues, tints, and shades of color.

Each canvas is prepared. Next, the underpainting is done. When the canvas is dry, I use various techniques to apply paint and texture. Again, when the canvas is dry, I start painting and glazing techniques. This process is repeated several times, until I feel the piece is finished.

Translation of my unique photographic vision from camera to canvas and print.

Janeen Hobby

My interest in photography began with the study of nature. The beauty, grandeur, and complexity of life on this planet are my subjects. From the grand vistas of the Rocky Mountains to the rocky coastline of Maine, I have been enthralled by the majesty of nature. But I am as captivated by a small detail as I am by a sweeping landscape. Indeed, you may see in some of my images an interest in exploring the patterns nature makes in an abstract way, from a close-up of the bark of a Rainbow Eucalyptus tree in south Florida, to a reflection of the Everett Covered Bridge and autumn leaves in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

But my love for photography extends also to humanity and what it has created. In addition to traveling the United States, I have spent time in Asia and the Middle East—from China, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Laos, to Yemen and Dubai. On these journeys I aim to capture the essence of a place, which can occur in the smile of a novice monk on the Tibetan Plateau; or in the art and architecture of an ancient civilization, such as when the Cambodian jungle overtakes the Angkor complex, or when the sun warms the top of a 400-year old “skyscraper” in Sana’a, Yemen.

My most recent body of work comes from Ohio, where I live and work. In revisiting familiar places to photograph them, I always discover something new. I have been exploring close-ups and abstractions lately, including the bark of a London Plane tree in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, the steel curves and shapes of the Peter B. Lewis building designed by Frank Gehry on Case Western Reserve’s campus, and the brightly colored glow of Christmas lights at Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens in Akron. It’s the magic of “writing with light” that I continue to explore.

Dyetology is a line of unique, hand-dyed accessories using natural fibers (Cotton, Linen, Rayon, Bamboo, Silk). Natural fibers take the dye amazingly well and as a result, the colors are rich and vibrant. Quality is important to me that is another reason why I use natural fibers- natural fibers are breathable, durable, and feel better on! In addition, I use permanent, professional grade dyes, chemicals, and detergents for durability and longevity of the item. Each piece is unique and one-of-a- kind.

Why Hand-Dyed? Why Hand-Made? 
There’s alot of “stuff” out there to buy. We have many “ready” made items in our lives to chose from. I want to create unique, wearable art pieces that make everyone who puts them on feel special. Hand-dying guarantees a unique outcome everytime- no two pieces will be the same. I want your Dyetology item to be something you will cherish and keep in your closet for many years to come. Each item has been thoughtfully and carefully made by me in Columbus, Ohio.

Michael West

I use storm damaged trees from my local area to make artistic and utilitarian bowls, treenware or kitchen utensils including spoons, spatulas, rolling pins, bread knives, and cutting boards.

Pam Greulich

My passion for wood working and art started with remodeling projects for my home and welding unique furnishings. After many years of working in the public sector, I decided to take the bold leap and bring my passion to you.

Stix + Steel is about fusing the beauty of live edge wood with reclaimed metal and steel. It’s my way of giving back to nature by beautifying nature’s wood and transforming it into functional home and office furnishings. Each design is hand crafted, unique and authentic. Rustic, yet contemporary, each piece is custom made highlighting the beauty of kiln dried wood or reclaimed oak barrels with the simplicity of metal.

Robert Linn

Using domestic and sustainable exotic hardwoods, I hand cut, sand, and finish Asian Zen sculptures, rustic Appalachian bow saws, and contemporary keepsake boxes.

Thomas Stahl

Segmented wood bowls made from 37-700+ pcs of domestic & exotic woods. All pieces designed to be used for food – all have a high gloss food safe finish. All signed and numbered by artist.

Stahl Bowls was founded in 2005 in Fairfield, OH as an outgrowth of a 40 + yr. hobby of clock and furniture making.  The segmented bowls were a happy accident resulting from a clock spindle supplier going out of business.  The need to have 4 walnut spindles for a large Eli Terry clock resulted in early attempts at using a long neglected wood lathe.  While researching on the Internet a small 13 piece “segmented” bowl pattern was discovered and tried.  A new passion was born and now over 2,600 bowls later a fine crafts business is flourishing.  “Stahl Bowls” have spread around the world with pieces in Italy, Germany, England, Japan,  Australia, China, Sweden, India , Peru, and Canada.

Tom and his wife sell to the public at 12-14 Fine Arts and Craft shows each year – mostly in the Mid-Atlantic states.
