Nancy Hoover began as a sketch artist at age 12, drawing illustrations for an instructional book about ceramics. Later, she acquired a degree in graphic design and also became a watercolor artist. Ten years ago, Nancy found her passion for jewelry design. She has attended William Holland School of Lapidary Arts in Georgia, and Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco. Her silver and goldsmithing skills along with her love of gemstones combines to create unique and eye-catching art jewelry pieces. “I aspire to have all of my jewelry be a piece of wearable art. I try to think ‘out of the box’ and use my metal-smithing and design skills to create jewelry which shows balance and beauty yet not always be symmetrical or ‘expected’. Using precious and semi-precious gems to showcase their color and energy to give the wearer that special feel, is my goal.”
Barb’s Statement: “I have been a potter for over 40 years. I chose clay because of the endless formations and incredible intensifying colors that can be created through the many combinations of glazes and firings. I work with three different clays; earthenware, and two high fire porcelains. Within the past three years I have expanded to mosaics using many of my handmade pieces as well as stained glass. I take much of my inspiration from nature and have incorporated the use of leaves from my garden, including grape, fig, passion vine, lotus, ivy, etc. I am not a production potter; each piece of pottery is individually created, one-of-a-kind and never exactly duplicated. All of the glazes I use are food safe and are durable enough to be used inside or out as mini ponds with water or simply for display.” www.chrysalispottery.com
