Nicole Diem: Raku Clay
I am an art teacher at Century High School in Carroll County MD,
and have been teaching students the aesthetics, craft and history of art for the past 22 years.
My passion is creating in clay.
I am a sculptor and ceramicist who creates unique ware for decoration, as well as, functional use.
In 2003 I began a journey in clay that would alter my way of creating pottery.
I worked with master potter Ken Hankins at Shiloh Pottery where I explored various throwing, glazing and firing processes.
Even after 15 years of exploration in pottery I realize that this art is one that requires finesse with finicky finishes.
Although, I love creating functional ware, my desire is to master the art of Raku.
Raku firing is like Christmas morning, each time I unveil a piece of pottery
it is like revealing a magical gem that possesses a rainbow of iridescence and colors so lustrous that they truly become an art of their own.
Each piece is uniquely different whether, infused in color or strikingly black and white.
Not only is the pottery magical to view but, the process is unique and just as mesmerizing.
Contrasting black fine lines of horse hair or peacock feathers burned onto on stark white
or stained ware sets my artwork apart from many others."

Kim Marlor: Seaglass
"It all started while I volunteered to help with some killer whale research. 
Lunchtime was spent on the beach so I could keep a watch out for passing whales.  Rubbing my hands on the pebble beach
exposed the wet pieces of seaglass just below the surface.  This 'looking' quickly became a passion that I've enjoyed for over 20 years. 
And when you gather enough pieces of seaglass, you can't help wanting to do "something" with it...so jewelry,
ornaments, wind chimes, and other creations is what I do.  Pieces of glass remind me of the places I've seen and friends I've met.
Most importantly it allows me to be creative with what was once a piece of trash and is now a beautiful smooth piece of beauty."

"And now I am working with "wampum", the purple substance found in New England's quahog (clam) shells.
The Native American along the shores of New England created beads for jewelry and brought them as gifts to neighboring tribes. 
This beautiful shell, at one time known only to the people living along the New Jersey to southern Maine shores,
is now admired and displayed throughout the world.

Michele Shepherd: Silver/fabrication
My exploration of the natural constructed world around me has led to fabricating miniature versions,
worn next to the body reflecting the natural rhythms of life.

MiculAnn Morse: Holiday Jewelry and Knitted Items
There are so many beautiful Christmas ornaments, I thought there might be other ways to display them.
So I enjoy making necklaces using some of the ornaments I've found. Why should the tree have all the fun?
I also love to knit and always have several projects going,
so I like to make cowls to keep out the winter chill. I have lots of cowls to sell!
