Nancy works mainly with transparent and irridescent glasses and tends toward Asian influenced pieces and abstract glass work. She is drawn to Asian because of the simplicity and clean lines.
Kaaren Brooks, Self Centered Pottery
Kaaren has “played with clay” off and on her entire life. Her inspirations include
a combination of listening to what people want, looking at and taking pictures
of her natural environment, viewing other artists’ work in a variety of media,
and experimenting with processes and designs. Her pottery pieces are
mostly functional with a few art pieces to make pottery life even more interesting.
I have been interested in atmospheric firing since under graduate school. With soda, salt or wood firing the results of the firing are a mystery until the kiln has cooled and the door is open. It's kind of like treasure hunting. I am currently making functional stoneware and porcelain.
Brian and Wendy Fuller – Fairview Lake Studios
Brian and Wendy love to create simply styled functional pieces and feel that incorporating beautiful, unique objects into everyday life can help to elevate even simple acts like preparing foods or serving a meal. All pieces are entirely handcrafted, one-of-a-kind and contain unique variations of patterns and colors. Items are made using stoneware clay and glazes that are lead free and food, microwave, and dishwasher safe. All clay and glazes are obtained from local sources.

Along with creating pottery, she enjoys belonging to the close knit group of artists in the Ebb Tide Gallery of Gifts.
