Darci Shea Bogdan
When I was a little girl I lived aboard a sailboat and traveled up and down Central and South America with my family. Through my travels I was inspired by the culture, history, folklore, colors, and the stunning beauty of the nautical world. I would collect shells and sea glass that I would use to create earrings and necklaces and I would sell them to other sailors while we passed I each other in port.
I make earrings, pins and necklaces out of recycled, invented, and found objects. Each piece is unique, fun, easy to wear, and original.I spent three years reading German and French literature at Somerville College, Oxford, England. I spent three more years encouraging women of many cultures to teach men and women of their cultures to use and sell Max Factor makeup and skin care.

Sunday Tirio Designs
I started making things out of leather in 2015 as a creative outlet and as gifts for friends. I make things for people that prefer to buy unique hand-crafted bags over something mass produced in a factory on an assembly line abroad. My designs strike a balance between beauty, simplicity and versatility. They are made for years of hard use, a lifetime if cared for, and every element can be repaired and replaced.

I founded CARTERA in 2012, and it is a fast-growing company based in Sunnyvale, CA. The leather bags are charming and functional, designed to help transition from work to leisure.
I was lucky in that everyone in the school I attended K-8 took both shop and art. This taught me a love of making things using a both of hands and brain. Working with leather as a creative endeavor began at an early age for me, starting in high school. I started doing leatherwork professionally after college and have been at it since 1979.

Not East and Not West
"My work is influenced by Jazz. Miles, Coltrane, Dizzy, Evans, Brubeck and, as Count Basie used to refer to him, "Oscar Pete." I love listening to the old guys tell their stories and talk about their struggles. Listening to Jazz Profiles on NPR, it's like hanging out with them late at night. The music is alive, always changing. They push space.
Along the regular school, I went to City Art School in Ukraine where I grew up (Now everyone knows what Ukraine is!) It was a product of the Soviet era: almost free, 3-4 days a week after school.

Frederico Garcia Lorca was a significant influence as was the artist Paul Klee.

Jeff Owen Artworks
My sculptures combine the past and the present.
I have a deep affinity toward the materials I work with, a wonderful sense of emotion, feelings, and dreams for what the material was once used for and now what it will become in my hands. These feelings direct me on my path.
My processes emerge with patterns. Taking one piece of steel; adding to it, deleting from it, constantly discovering the metal’s unique appeal.
Rick Waltonsmith’s sculptures feel as though they have grown organically in their site. Like wind-twisted coastal trees, sea creatures, or the pattern of wind in grass, Waltonsmith captures an elemental energy and conveys it into form. His sculptures are shaped in Corten steel or bronze bars as an outline to make a non-representational shape; he then suspends “tesserae” – rough polished stainless steel, bronze and brass objects - around the linear form.

Wood Turning Obsession
Yes wood turning is an obsession with me. Every morning I walk out to my shop and am just as exited as to what I am about to create as I was many years ago when I started wood turning. I have been a wood worker for 30 years doing cabinets, furniture and anything else I could think of out of wood.
Hudson River Inlay
The creation of an exclusive Hudson River Inlay begins first with a rough sketch by the artist. The next step is to capture the essence of the subject with just a few subtle lines that convey its motion and vitality. The result is a final line drawing that serves as a blueprint for each individual piece of art.
The advent of technology has created wonderful advantages in providing access to the “information highway”. Kindle gives us an opportunity to read texts anytime, anywhere. But, as is the case with any “progress”, there will be casualties along the way. The beautiful hardback books with colorful embossing and cloth or leather bindings are now relegated to the dusty shelves of thrift stores or are dumped into landfills. My art form is one of transformation and appreciation.
He is one of our international featured artists, he is traveling from Arrazola, in Oaxaca, Mexico to be with us and share his craft: The Alebrijes.
Alebrijes are wooden figures that are carved from a tree called Copal, the copal, at the beginning of the carving process is very soft. After the inicial shape is done, the piece is let out to dry for months, during that time, the alebrije cracks and loses weight. With a very detailed process the cracks are fixed and then the artist can do fine-tune carving and lastly, a very intricate painting that takes years to learn.
An alebrije on average takes from 6 to 18 months from start to finish.
If you ever go to Oaxaca, ask your tour guide to take to Arrazola or Tilcajete. Those are the world capitals of the alebrijes.
