The appeal of his folk art is in the indescribable features of the uniqueness, authenticity and techniques that are handed down from generations of those who have gone on before.

Woodturning

DK WOODTURNING

Dennis has had a deep respect and love of nature since childhood. His uncle taught him the art of fly fishing as a teenager, learning to develop his own flies. The peace and solitude of being in the woods and by the streams he experienced when fishing deepened his appreciation for all things natural. As a public educator, Dennis was able to do carpentry work with a fellow school teacher during the summers, evenings and weekends. He acquired many woodworking skills over the years and became adept at using many different tools of the trade. During the winter months, they worked in the shop to build early American reproductions as well as cabinetry work. Upon retirement from teaching in 2007. Dennis purchased a wood lathe to pursue wood turning as a hobby. This was a natural fit and before too long he was producing beautiful bowls and other items. The wood Dennis turns is local from his property or from the land of friends and neighbors in Pennsylvania. All of the wood used is either naturally fallen or was removed by tree services. No trees were cut down specifically for making bowls. He specializes in natural edge crotchwood bowls. The bowls he makes are all unique and are determined by the wood itself, often changing during the process to fit the characteristics found inside the log. He also turns traditional bowls as well as a variety of Christmas items.

Jewelry

RAW HEALING

About two years ago, Gabbi began making jewelry out of crystals as a hobby, mostly making them for family and friends. A year ago she decided to share her creations with the world. She had learned how important it was to be love and to spread kindness and crystals have helped her do this. She realized that not many people knew the importance of being mindful and to simple be kind to others so she decided to try to spread this to all of her customers. Each purchase comes with a free handmade recycled newspaper bag along with information on all of the stones you have purchased. All of her skin care/beauty products are all natural, organic and began! Her company’s soul mission is to be the love she wishes to see in the world!

Pottery

MERLE SLYHOFF POTTERY

Beginning over 25 years ago, Merle experiences an inherent joy and relaxation in taking a lump of clay, wedging it, throwing it on the wheel, adding texture and dimension and then waiting for the bisque piece to come out of the kiln. The last step, glazing, turns that initial lump of clay into a final piece of art. Whether it is a mug, a bowl, a vase or a platter, she works the clay to maintain a simplicity of design while considering the ergonomics of use. Her design aesthetic is minimalist, however, a fascination with texture and surface design enables her to enhance the simplicity through carvings, texture work and piercings that allow the glazes to intensify the final work. She designs and creates all of her work at her Glenside, PA studio, always striving to create work tat brings joy to the user. She is a member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen and a juried member of the Bucks County Guild of Craftsmen. Her work “Trees” won an award at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts Member Show and she participates in many juried fin craft shows. Her work can also be found on the web and in local galleries.

As an artist, he is inspired by everything around him and is fascinated by the hidden color and textures that can be found in light and shadow. A primary goal of his art is to bring awareness to the wonderful world that surrounds us. He tries to capture this vision in his paintings so others can see the beauty as he sees it. He studied at Penn State as an Art Education Major and later switched to the Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia, earning a Associate of Arts degree.
