Kathy also dedicates time working with her buddy, Andy, and has helped him to build his own  business.  Andy has autism and at first he resisted working with Kathy, but over 5 years later these two are good friends and Andy has developed a great skill in sewing!

This weekend stop by the Market and say hello to Kathy to check out all her new designs… best of all she’s offering 20% off all pillows!!

These are her first pair of desert scene pillow Kathy made in 1982

A Taste of the Market

Vendor Profile: Clay Madness

Victoria Fodale and Charles Erb are the artisans behind Clay Madness. The team produces hand built, functional ceramics. Everything is hand made throughout the entire process. Clay Madness does not use molds or pouring, either Charle’s hands or Victoria’s hands touch every piece. The team creates its ceramics in a clay workshop that was started in Victoria’s garage. Clay Madness produces bowls, coffee cups, olive oil bottles, and other functional pieces. Look for market cups coming soon!

If you were at the market last week you may have enjoyed watching Charles Erb demonstrate his hard work and talents on his pottery wheel. Don’t worry, he’ll have another demonstration on October 29th for our Harvest Festival.

Meet Robert Lievens, the artist behind Fallen Wood Turnings.  He’s been using fallen wood from urban forests and resourcing wood to create hand crafted pieces for over 8-years now.  You can find unique, hand-turned wooden jewelry, bowls, wind chimes and sun catchers.  Each piece has a story behind it, where the wood was sourced from, what type of wood and how it was found.  Find wood bowls, salad spoons, knives made from varieties of wood found in the back country, brought in by a customer and even sourced from an old pool table!  Stop by and talk with Robert about what he’s creating.
