Piece of my Peace Pottery
My business name, Piece of my Peace Pottery, truly expresses my joy of working with clay. There is something very soothing about feeling the clay under my fingers and responding to my touch. I like that I can share my peace through my creations. I have always loved art, but it was only as my children grew older that I was truly able to pursue ceramics. Most of my instruction has been through the Indianapolis Art Center where I now teach both adult and teen classes. I have been in many area shows including Broadripple Art Fair, Penrod, and Talbot, as well as some regional shows for the last 15 years. My work can be found at Art IN Hand Gallery in Zionsville, IN.

Jackie Ayres Designs / Dyetology
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 we use natural fibers- natural fibers are breathable, durable, and feel better wearing them. We use fabrics that feel so good on your body, you won’t want to take them off! In addition, we use permanent, professional grade dyes, chemicals, and detergents for durability and longevity of the item. Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind.
Pompano Beach, FL
Paula’s work is meticulously handcrafted with small brushes in order to get the fine detail unusual in most Batik. The Batik process is a craft originating in the 13th century in Java. It is a wax resist technique which involves working with natural fibers such as cotton or silk, fabric dyes and beeswax.
Felted By Design
My one-of-a-kind hand-felted artwork (handbags, hats, jewelry, scarves, vessels, & wall art) is created with ancient wet felting techniques using fiber, soap, water, & my hands.
High quality textiles and one of a kind patterns are used for every hand crafted handbag. Decorative hardware in the latest styles, trends and colors accent each piece.
Sterling Heights, MI
My love for fabric is reflected in my work. I’m known for combining prints, textures, and colors to create a piece that is original, whimsical, and functional. Even the thread and buttons are complement the overall look.
From the bricks in the doorstops to the fabric on the pillows, I repurpose materials using techniques from a century ago. My studio is zero waste – even pieces of thread are reused to ensure the least amount of impact to the environment.
Since 1985, Richard Bond has been creating unique works of art using glass as the medium for his artistic expression. The photographs on this web site represent a sampling of his work. Each piece is an original work of art, designed and handcrafted by the artist himself. The images are sandblasted into coloured glass, clear glass, or a combination of both, using hand cut or liquid resist to control the sandblast. The colors in the work are the original colors of the glass; they have not been painted or stained onto the glass and are thus permanent and will not fade.
Inspired by the Canadian landscape, the artist seeks to reveal the raw beauty and organic energy of the natural environment through his artwork.
Over many years Richard has developed an extensive client list and his art works may be found in government, corporate, and private collections around the world. In the spring of 2010 Richard was honored when he was chosen by the Government of Canada to create art works for presentation as gifts to the world leaders attending the G-20 Summit in Toronto.

Pat Reed Originals
The body of my work describes physical and implied borders as well as the juxtaposition of textures and space. Mythological themes, archetypal symbolism, and visual narratives are often developed as a byproduct of the play of edges or emerging suggestions from the light and dark values. The contours of the sculptural glass figures and heads are often defined by both positive and negative forms. Paintings often incorporate collage technique of layers of fabric and paper that are added, sometimes subtracted and manipulated (deconstructed), then reapplied to reconstruct surfaces that help to imbue the concept with a sense of metamorphosis/ transformation through layering. The reprocessing and mixing of media informs the direction in which the work develops. Varied art forms have inspired my work, created humbly from the heart.
Lisa Robin Jewelry
Created in sterling silver or 14k gold plated sterling, I feature natural gemstones in my own designs. Pieces are cast and most gemstones are bezel set. I also use leather, and gemstone beads.
ELM Jewelry Designs
My work is all steampunk inspired. I deconstruct old watches, re-purpose antique found objects, re-use old leather and other items that I might find in my treasure hunting. The items I find are usually old and rusty; I file and clean all the keys and metal pieces I come across. The antique jewelry I find to re-use I prefer to be broken already, it’s not only more of a challenge for myself, but I’m also not breaking apart something that has survived over 50 years.
Techniques include metal smithing, lost wax casting, and fold form. Materials include silver, brass, copper, and various semi-precious stones.
Shelby Township, MI

Wendy Witchner Jewelry
Handcrafted wire wrapped jewelry, one-of-a-kind or limited pieces. Artisan Wendy Witchner travels across America with her faithful four-footed companion Allie, and along the way she finds new and challenging designs to create and add to her ever-evolving jewelry repertoire.
All the pieces of jewelry I create are my original design and handmade by me, using the skills and techniques I have developed over these 13 years of wire working. I prefer to make the wire flow and look natural, rather than kinked and manipulated looking. My designs are elegant and convey a lot of energy with many spirals, squiggles, colors, and long gentle bends. The only tools I use,other than my hands, are flush-cutters, needle nose pliers, wooden mandrels, hammers and an anvil. At every show I make items specialized to customer’s size or color preference, which puts my skills out on display and really conveys to the patrons that everything in my booth is original and handmade by me.

Diane Ackers LLC
I’m a contemporary artist who creates expressive art that consists of nature and nonobjective work. Inspired by nature and the human spirit, I combine an intuitive style of painting with techniques us.
I use acrylic paints and mediums to build layers and a variety of techniques to create visual interest including scumbling, glazing, scraping, etc. before applying several final layers of varnish.
I create abstracted landscapes from real places with multiple layers of acrylic over textured surfaces.the layers are applied as a mix of glazes and thick paint to create a soft dreamlike quality.
I am spellbound by the watercolor medium and desire to capture the splendor of various destinations throughout Ohio utilizing its translucent, vibrant and mystical powers.
SB Whitehead Fine Art
I’ve worked for many years as a freelance illustrator, accepting assignments from the top magazines, newspapers, publishers and other specialized clients from all over the United States, but I’ve always harbored a love of painting. Until recently, I just painted for my own pleasure, but I decided in 2011 to offer many of these private works for sale. My work can now be seen at juried art exhibitions, art fairs and other festival events where I make new friends, gain new collectors and have great conversations about all things art.
