“Made” an exhibition for the one-of-a-kind and the unexpected works made by Northwest hands. Alluring, distinctive and exquisite products, never-before-seen, with just the right dose of imperfection to suggest a human element in the creative process.

“This is the time of year, before the gift-giving season, the gallery digs a bit deeper into the subject of the handmade, with a reverence for artisans who are producing exclusive objects, artisans who have made craft cool and luxurious.”

Featuring harp maker Duane Bolster, basket maker Carol Bolster, wood worker Mike Brown, calligrapher Penelope Culbertson, glass maker Christine Downs, paper crane maker Peggy Evans, quilt maker Cherry Jones Harris, maker of pottery Suzy Holland and mixed media maker JoAnn Pari-Mueller.

Welcoming pine needle artisan Martha Denham and wood turner Tom Willing.

Introducing metalsmith Nikki Hall and potter Marcia Hudson.

“Every design by metalsmith Nikki Hatt starts with an original idea, sketched out to create an exquisite handmade piece of jewelry. Smithing is one of the oldest metalworking occupations. Shaping metal by forging with a hammer is the archetypical component of smithing. Handmade jewelry is literally just that, made by the “hands” of the artisan or maker. The pieces are soldered, sawed, carved and shaped without the use of mass produced manufacturing machinery.” 

Grace note:

“My daughter had a lot of nice things to say about your gallery and I look forward to being a part of it. I am happy to curate what I send to the theme of your store. Here is a little bit about me: I teach metal smithing. I have been making jewelry for about 12 years. I hand craft every piece. Each piece is one of a kind. I use high quality materials and craftsmanship.”  NH
