The Morning Glory Art Fair is on hiatus this year, so...




The J.A.R. Studio will be hosting a select group of artists who will be digging up their roots and finding new fertile grounds to show their many cultivars of finely pruned, pampered and nurtured works. 

Come and forage. 

Pick your own bouquet of art.

2020 is a strange year, as we deal with the Covid 19 virus. Following all safety protocols, the show will be completely outdoors, and we will be limiting the number of people to two per booth at one time.  Artists will be donning their masks and asking our visitors to do the same. Our fiber artists, Kathy Johnson and Erika Mock promise to have plenty of stylish hand-crafted masks available in their booths. Hand washing, sanitizing and six foot distancing, will be our goal, all while having fun.

We are going to do this if we can.

Friday, August 7th, 12-7 , Saturday, August 8th, 11-5

At first you recognize my work as a fish, a frog, a beetle or a butterfly but you’re not sure what it’s made of. Look at closer at it, touch it, maybe you can figure it out. 

 My work is a study of color and design in decorative and functional fiber, utilizing machine piecing and free motion quilting.  It is based on a lifetime of sewing and color immersion, and explores the relationship between traditional quilting methods and modern materials and techniques. 

 The pots I create are intended to bring artwork into daily living while enhancing the interactions between food, drink, people, and their community. As a craftsperson, I endeavor to create highly utilitarian wares for people to use, touch, see, and experience on a consistent basis.  

The process of making things with my hands has always been a

critical component of my life. Making Jewelry allows me to utilize

my hands, head, and heart. Creating jewelry that is a BLEND of

traditional and non-traditional materials, and techniques keeps

me engaged in the making process. The practice of trial and error

to make material perform in unexpected ways leads to fun

discoveries and more often failure. I take inspiration from the

materials I am presented with and how they can transform into

jewelry that is unique, affordable and wearable.

I began drawing and carving onto my pieces a few years into my life as a potter and have never stopped. My designs have always been inspired by nature and have evolved to include everyday household objects and popular iconography. I strive to create imagery that can be visually beautiful, and at times, somewhat playful.
