This time we want to share with you a glimpse of our selection of boxes that are now available on our website!
Handmade, unique boxes always make great gifts for women, who need to have a place to store jewelry, treasures, mementos etc. They are also lovely art pieces to look at.
Fathers will enjoy some of these boxes for storing their watches, jewelry or keepsakes, and appreciate the fine craftsmanship! And yes, Father’s Day is tomorrow!
Please take a look or come to ArtQuest to see more!
It has been a very quiet June so far. Some say it already feels like August but we have been busy with opening all the boxes that keep coming. Our artists always make us astonished at their creativity and talent. We are happy to share with you the glimpses of what is happening here.
Beautiful organic jewelry from Chicago born artist Leah Sturgis.
New Lazy Susan Turntables from Sticks
Mullanium birds just flew in!
And last but not least! Absolutely stunning glass ikebana from Karen Donleavy Studio.
On April 20 we made an exciting trip to Washington IL to meet with the ceramic artist Sandra McKenzie. She is a wonderful person and a very accomplished artist. In her cute little workshop we found a variety of ceramic creations, including functional vases, casseroles, bowls or keepsakes with adorable decorations showing different kinds of animals, vegetables and flowers. All is very unique and quirky. We enjoyed our time at McKenzie Studio very much and wanted to share these moments with you.
Please come to ArtQuest in Hinsdale to see many of these adorable items in real.
Shari Dixon is a firm believer that women want to feel beautiful, feminine and strong all at once, her motifs incorporate natural elements and mixed media such as pressed flowers, leaves, herbs, snakeskin, serape blanket and feathers, immortalizing their fragile lives by sealing them in a poly resin, preserving the form and adding a spectacular glazing effect.
BRACELETS LOCKETS NECKLACES
These elements then become a handmade design combined with curious and daring color choices in a multitude
of natural stones, fresh water pearls and interesting fibers.
The results are whimsical and extremely unique designs of personal adornment.
It’s February, the weather is as it is at this time of the year in Chicago
and that never makes us happy.
As always we anxiously look forward to Spring. Anna has been finding a new stuff
here and there…and we can’t wait one more second to show you.
Anna is in Philadelphia on the art show http://www.pmacraftshow.org/artists
Can’t stand a wait what other unique pieces she’s going to find there!
