A sampling of local artisans and their offerings in the “Artist Row” include:
Country At Heart Designs, from Renton, creates beautiful, handmade, reversible fabric place mats with a large variety of themes such as floral, garden, wine, nautical, nature, and many more. Also available are potholders, wine bottle gift bags, wall hangings, and cloth napkins in a large assortment of colors. Everything is machine washable and all fabrics are prewashed first to prevent any shrinking or puckering when washed! Hand painted wood and metal items are another creation from Country At Heart Designs. You will find bird houses, watering cans (some vintage), planters and so much more.
Ferndale’s Bear Arts Studio highlights sandblasted and etched glassware which gives the original designs a three-dimensional character. Each piece of glass is individually sand carved by hand; this process produces a lasting design that is dishwasher-safe. Come and choose a wonderful piece for everyday use or special occasions.
Richard Jahn, from Kent, specializes in painting local landscape scenes from around the Puget Sound area. His artwork at the show will be available in both prints and original paintings. The effervescent, vivid art has an atmospheric and energetic quality that will be a dynamic spotlight in your home.
Oregon’s Clay Art Studio has been creating whimsical art with clay for over 30 years. Her one-of-a-kind art pieces are perfect for accessorizing yourself and your home. From whimsical to elegant, each piece is made by hand. The booth will showcase a unique and ever-changing line of jewelry, home decor, wine and table-top accessories and much more.
