He says when using reclaimed wood, his material of choice, he can’t wait to bring it back to life. Don also builds commissioned work, for example building rockers tailored to fit the individual, creating family heirlooms.
POTTERY AND CERAMICS
Della achieves capturing fluid motion with the clay in her sculptural and functional hand-built pieces. She says that her pathway in art began in her own mother’s studio. She has studied under many profes- sional artists in Florida, Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, and Hawaii. Della’s cloud horses and many of her other pieces are gracefully lyrical, while others show the whimsy of her imagination.
Lory is a pastel artist inspired by the colors in nature and the beauty around her. Her work is influenced by the impressionists, their interpretation of subject, and the way they captured light.
“Color is my muse and I look for ways to brighten up an image with color.”
Lory says her art career actually started in Nashville as a young person visiting her grandmother. She tried different medium but loved the vibrant colors and immediacy of pastels.
