Brian Watson

I sculpt, twist and manipulate sterling wire and add semi-precious stones, crystals, glass from the Czech Republic and sterling and gold fill beads to create each earring which are not the same for each pair. Each pair of earrings is unique just like us. People come in many shapes, colors and sizes. My jewelry designs have that same concept. We are all equal but we are not identical.

Right from their own Bear Kingdom Vineyard, every berry is lovingly raised and ripened to perfection. Then, following a family recipe passed down from Dennis’ mother, the magic takes place. Each batch is truly homemade with fruit, sugar and pectin…no corn syrup, artificial flavorings, colors or preservatives added.

Jacquelyn Kaucher

Jacquelyn Kaucher translates the images she’s collected in her mind on to paper or large canvas by pouring, squirting, dribbling, rocking and spraying paint onto the surface. She begins with impromptu ‘underpaintings’ and works to music. “If I particularly like a watercolor painting, I move to a canvas. I use a garden sprayer and transparent acrylics to create these paintings which have a watercolor feel. Just as we are not perfect, neither are my paintings, and I continually want to do another which I am sure will be perfect.

Jeanette Larson

Jeanette learned to crochet from her grandmother when she was eight-years-old and has rarely put down her crochet hooks since then. She crocheted while on the bench during high school basket ball games and in lecture halls in college. “Crocheting helps me relax and keep still while letting my mind work on things,” she said. Her mom is a talented seamstress who made many clothes for Jeanette and her two brothers. “I learned all the basics of fabric manipulation, fiber behavior and pattern piecing from watching my mother,” said Jeanette.

Jeff & Judy Goodwin

We have always found enjoyment working in clay and most specifically colored porcelains. Starting in 1997 we began to learn and experiment with the Japanese process known as Nerikomi. The process begins in our studio with the mixing of the porcelain using our own recipe. Stain is then added to the porcelain to make several varieties of colored clay. Designs are created by layering the colored porcelain in various ways while actually building the patterns into large blocks or loaves. Each piece of jewelry is sliced from the log and carefully shaped, sanded and wiped clean with a damp cloth. It is then bisque fired, followed by a glaze firing to cone 6. A third and final firing of 24 karat gold luster is applied to the edge of each piece. All the rich depth of colors found in our designs are from the colored porcelains. No paints, colored glazes or underglazes have been added.

Jerry & Judy Lovenstein

Seeking change, the Lovensteins left their Forest Service jobs in Washington State to live a simpler life. “We were drawn to Stone County, Arkansas because it is a community with strong ties to the past, when life was slower,” says Jerry. In 1976, they and their two-year-old son, Adrian, settled on a secluded 59 acres along Grassy Creek. “We came with a Mother Earth News education in homesteading and a determination to make it here. Jobs were scarce. Seasonal waitress work at the Ozark Folk Center turned into the key to our future” recalls Judy.

Jerry Faulkner

Jerry Faulkner has a way with clay. From her idyllic studio setting at the site of the historic Rhea’s Mill in Northwest Arkansas, she produces a broad spectrum of functional bowls, platters, and mugs; outdoor accessories, and jewelry. Her clay work focuses on both form and function. Functional work primarily is wheel-thrown stoneware, while the decorative pieces are often hand built and more organic in design, and often raku or pit fired. In addition to her own work, she devotes time to teaching pottery.

Jim is struck by the abundance of the natural beauty one can find once they are willing to open their minds eye and look. He feels there is no greater part of the world to find it than right here in the “natural” state. “I love this state, its people and its wealth of visual pleasures.

Joe Doster

I started woodworking sitting on my rear. As a kid my Dad would often say “I need your help.” “Sit on this board while I cut it.” I learned so much from my father, just by being around him while he accomplished whatever needed to be done, using his hands and mind. I think of him all the time as I work. Little things “pop” out at me showing he is still a part of me and all of my woodworking.

John Perry & Judi Munn

We produce our pottery at the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View, Arkansas. During the visitor season, we demonstrate the art of making wheel-thrown pottery to the public. We form pots out of raw clay. The following day, we trim and decorate them. To decorate the pot we press a fern or hand-made stencil into the surface of the clay. Colored clay, or slip, is then painted over the stencil. Once the colored clay stiffens, the fern or stencil is removed.

Leigh Abernathy

I love the feel of the metal as I work with it, transforming it into art you can wear and use. I start with an idea, then take sterling silver or solid copper wire and sheet and hand cut, form, shape, forge, fuse and polish or patina each piece as its design directs. My inspiration comes from the world around me—walks in the woods, sitting by the water and even my sons’ bubbles have driven my designs.  They all fuel my creativity, helping me to translate those ideas to metal.  My designs are unique.

Thomas Dunn

I was born in Ohio some 60 years ago. I moved to Arkansas almost 30 years ago. I live alone, so I can devote a lot of time to my wood turnings. I started turning wood over 20 years ago on a homemade spring pole lathe. Over the next several years my equipment improved and so did my turning skills. Whenever I thought I was at the top of my skill level I would try to push myself to a new higher level. About 10 years ago I started doing some simple segmented bowls. Every year or so I try something a little more challenging. I have come a long way, but I still have a long way to go.
