Handmade in America

Here are some photos of the July 4th Exhibit, the show was nice and came many people. I met wonderful upcoming artist that I will keep a eye on them, and some well know artist as well.

I appeared in many photos because my lovely husband was in charge of the camera and he just likes to take photos of me :s I didn't post all of the photos I thought you may get tired of seeing my face.

So, here is my with my bowl, the bunnies bowl it has a fancy name because my husband is the one who name almost every pot I made, he has the amazing gift of writing, he loves words, play with words and create beautiful stories with those words. Every pot that he name becomes a piece of poetry, if it were for me the bowl will just be white bunnies with him is "Blue Spring Fulgent", much nicer, don't you think? The bowl has so much meaning with him, he put in words feelings, and I found that amazing!!!

This is a wood sculpture made by Candance Knapp, its name is "Sisters of the Holly Flower", it is a set of 3 girls/flowers all made of wood, it is a beautiful piece, I will buy it inmediately if I had the money, just $1800, not so bad if we think that she is quite famous. I have seen her pieces in many places around Florida in solo and group exhibitions. Also the red bird mobile, is another of her creations. 


And this wall belong to Linda Pieroth from Apollo Beach, Florida, she works with mosaics. She makes this beautiful images cutting little pieces of glass, adding beads and many things like that. Just beautiful, I like them all, but if I have to choose, I will take the cardinal and the moth, ok, just the cardinal, no, the moth. Her pieces are some what affordable between $300 and $400. If I sold my bowl I will buy one of these. 

Dan Balk Studio, he is the owner and the artist of the Singing Stone Gallery, he made amazing jewelry, beyond pretty and so unique, I am not a person who wear jewelry, just a pair of simple earrings are enough for me, but I can admire the process the art in each of his creations, if I had the money I will buy some for my mom, she loves jewelry and is not shy about wearing big pieces.

Me again :)

Again the bowl and I posing with my adorado Briancito !!!

The wonderful painting of a rooster by Lynn Rattray tittle "The Senator". I was wondering if she painted it because the show was in Ybor City and there are many chickens and rooster around here, the city of Ybor protect them and therefore they walk freely on the streets. We were looking at the painting and then we heard them, just outside the gallery a couple of them walking around,

 We went outside to try to take a better photo of them. They walked pretty fast, could get any close up.

It was a lovely evening, I meet some new artist and had a good time, after that we went back home and had a nice dinner with my lovely husband. Yesterday I found out that the Tampa Tribune newspaper wrote an  article about the exhibit, here is the link if you want to read it:

Theme of Singing Stone exhibit is all-american
