Lovers' Vaseby Karen Bailor

8.5 high x 4.5 circumference Clay, $45

Like any relationship, love comes with imperfections.... on purpose or not. The Lovers' Vase just shows me potential with the original idea I had for it and, of course, the smear on the lips of the figure on the left. This can be used as a vase or a wine bottle holder.

Efflorescence 2 (Pussy Willow)by Rebecca Clark

11 x 29 Graphite, colored pencil, and watercolor on paper

Both drawings I submitted are incomplete and part of a larger series of flora drawings featuring buds and other early signs of spring. I think the act of making the drawings has taken on a form of healing after these long, dark months of lockdown.

unfinished collageby Christine Cooke

Points of Sailby Ann Farley

24 x 24 Hand-cut paper

I love to play with colors and shapes as I design a new piece of artwork. And it's fun to cut out all the pieces and lay them out. But sometimes I never get around to the last step -- the boring part of lifting the pieces, painstakingly lining them up, and then gluing them all down. That's the case with Points of Sail -- I have all the little pieces in a ziploc, if anyone wants to re-commission this work. =) Contact me for details.

Nerikomi Style Hexagon Chip and Dipby Dianna Frymiare

Set of 4 Tumblersby Dianna Frymiare

4 3/4 x 3 Porcelain, $30

 If you remember, early on when we shut down, the "Daily Dose" featured me in a demo video in my kitchen and I was throwing these tumblers. There was a slight issue with the glaze running and I needed to clean up the bottoms. So, because of the grinding, each of the bottoms are facetted rather than smooth. That makes them not quite perfect, but just as functional.

Mondrian Cagedby David Hegland

23" x 23"x 20" Multimedia

Mondrian Caged is a 20-Sided Regular Icosahedron Inscribed with Orthogonal Rectangles. The length of each rectangle's sides are defined by the Golden Ratio. Each golden rectangle is further divided into smaller squares defined by the golden ratio which in turn define decreasingly smaller golden rectangles. Wooden dowels connected with 3-D printed knuckles define the shape of the outer Icosahedron. The rectangles are Kiln Formed Glass that have been interconnected with polished steel clamps. The colors and repetitive rectangular shapes are suggestive of Piet Mondrian. This piece is unfinished but once completed will be for sale.

Black-eyed Tessellationby Amelia Markosian

14 x 11 Linoprint / unframed, $50

The repeated shape seen in this tessellation is inspired by the artist’s family heritage valuing polish stoneware. The artist drew, carved, applied ink with a brayer, and pressed the paper by hand with a glass baren to create this lino print. The process of inking and pressing had to be repeated six times on each print to complete the tesselation.

Still Life with Floraby Richard Hall

12 x 9 Digital Photography, $80

These two images are part of my experiments with aging flora in still life settings. This image of a small organd zinnia is mixed with a glass support in a textured cloth ground and background with oblique natural light producing a shadow as a significant value in the composition. The glass supports allows also for the stem to be visible in glass and shadow. Sold as matted print.

Purchase

Aging Zinniaby Richard Hall

12 x 9 Digital Photography, $80

In this image of an older small zinia, light is used both as an oblique incident light from the right and in producing a translucent background. The screening is in partial focus and is also illuminated from behind by out of focus vegetation on the other side - giving a variegated color in the background. The foreground zinnia is processed digitally to enhance the graphic quality of the flora.

Boro Loveby Christine Kamon

This quilt uses the Japanese art of mending, called boro. Originally, the quilting technique was applied to extend the life of ragged and tattered clothes and household items by sewing patches in place with a simple running stitch.  This quilt has torn pieces of fabric which are layered without seams like a traditional piece of quilting would have.
