SCULPTURAL

Gary Justis
Although Justis works in all forms of sculpture, he primarily uses aluminum in both non-functional and functional, but not traditional, objects. Justis often creates sculptures containing moving parts, small motors and blinking lights...

David Paul Bacharach
When I work, I want my objects to express not solely an artistic presence, but also a craftsmanlike hands-on approach to materials. I use easily recognized forms executed in series and approached from divergent stylistic directions to create distinct emotional as well as visual reactions

Suzanne Amendolara
... I want to create works that have a sense of beauty, fantasy and femininity, that might exist in an idealized world...

Ray Katz
My sculpture incorporates ideas of transcendent movement from one plane or state of existence to another through the experience of the passage of time in space

Darlys Ewoldt
In my work, the vessel is an object of containment, protection, or shelter. The mystique and secrets of the interior spaces inspire introspection, evoking images held in memory or encountered in reality


ARCHITECTUAL / ORNAMENTAL

Jack Brubaker
We live in an age of spiritless and impersonal mass-produced goods. My goal is to make beautiful things that will bring pleasure to their owners.


FUNCTIONAL

Roberta Elliot / Velvet Hammer Studio
My creations represent original designs and personal interpretations of traditional forms and techniques. Many of their elements reflect shapes visible in the wooded areas that surround our home.

Harlan Butt
Harlan Butt, the 2002 Master Metalsmith, has exhibited his enamelwork both nationally and internationally for over twenty-five years

Michael & Maureen Banner
Amazing silversmiths. Known for teapots of incredible beauty.

Joseph Brandom
When creating a metal piece I try to keep in mind that a work of art is not only to look at, but also to experience as fully as possible through all of the senses. I incorporate different textures...

Lisa Slovis
...incorporating movement and function in these pieces, the participant is enticed to interact with them on a more intimate and tactile level. The viewer can have fun with the pieces by touching, playing, and manipulating the arrangement of parts

Boris Bally
Recycled street signs transformed into tables, chairs, bowls - even cabinets and jewelry

Cynthia Eid
I love the evolutionary transformation - through hammering, persuasion, and struggle - from a flat sheet of metal towards an object of unity and fluidity...

Kristen Alexandra
The construction of my work is organic, never rigid or mechanical. Uninflected geometry allows little room for personal touch

David Paul Bacharach
When I work, I want my objects to express not solely an artistic presence, but also a craftsmanlike hands-on approach to materials. I use easily recognized forms executed in series and approached from divergent stylistic directions to create distinct emotional as well as visual reactions

David M Bowman
My sense of form and composition comes from close and long study of natural forms, architecture from all periods, and the compositions of the masters of painting.


FURNITURE

Richard Bennett
His familiarity with stone, steel, and wood is reflected in the grace with which he mixes them, and in the ease with which he moves back and forth between art and furniture, blurring the lines at will….

Boris Bally
Recycled street signs transformed into tables, chairs, bowls - even cabinets and jewelry


Paul Freundt
An accomplished sculptor outside of Atlanta, Paul fabricates timeless designs from steel, aluminum and bronze.

Peter Handler
Bright anodized aluminum, playful design, precise construction and vibrant upholstery combine to make furniture that makes a statement unlike any other!

LITURGICAL & JUDAICA
