Today meet artists, TIP- Together It’s Possible

1. Please give us three words to describe your creations?

All our art creations are made from glass, much recycled. They are gifts for you, home made with love by artists with intellectual disabilities and autism.

2.. what can we look forward to you creating for this sale?

We have created serving dishes, vases, glasses and cutting boards all from recycled wine bottles. We will also be selling journals from handcrafted paper using our fused glass. Also, night lights made from our fused glass.

3. what about this particular art/craft makes you feel passionate and excited? 

This work is done side by side created by those living with disabilities and those who love them. We work in an open side by side studio and create beautiful art together.

 4. when you are not making art, where are you most likely to be?

Many of the young people of TIP work at Kirkridge Retreat Center and that is where the glass studio is as well!

5. do you have one quote or saying that you are living by these days? 

We live by “together it’s possible” advocating for change – in access, in opportunities and in outmoded ways of thinking.

Today meet artist, Margie Cohen

1. Please give us three words to describe your creations?

fun, colorful, functional

2.. what can we look forward to you creating for this sale?

I’m working on a new line of porcelain tableware inspired by nature and destined to be your “reach for it every time” favorite. I wheel form simple elegant shapes from white porcelain and use a watercolor technique with colorful underglazes to decorate mugs, bowls, pitchers, and teapots. I think of it as “Happy-ware”

3. what about this particular art/craft makes you feel passionate and excited? 

Painting (in lots of styles an mediums) is my passion. Over the years I have painted on paper, canvas, glass, wood, stoneware and now porcelain. Every mug, every bowl seems like a 3 dimensional canvas waiting for an original painting.

 4. when you are not making art, where are you most likely to be?

I might be holding a grand child, knitting for a grandchild, painting a grandchild’s portrait, flipping pancakes for grandchildren, …. well, you get the idea.

5. do you have one quote or saying that you are living by these days? 

“Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment”

Today, meet Samantha Bachman.

1. Please give us three words to describe your creations?

I would describe my creations as cute, sweet, and playful!

2.. what can we expect to find at your “booth?”

Since the holidays are quickly approaching, you can expect to find lots of ornaments featuring animals and holiday characters at my booth. I become obsessed with making ornaments as soon as November 1st arrives. I will also have a lot of polymer clay jewelry and accessories available, as well as a few ceramic and felt creations.
3. what about this art/craft makes you feel passionate and excited?

 I think that I get so excited about making ornaments because they are so closely linked with family tradition and nostalgia. It makes me so excited to think that one of my creations could play a tiny part in the holiday traditions of another person or family. I truly enjoy making people smile through the objects I create, no matter the medium or type of object.

4. when you are not making art, where can we expect you to be?

If I’m not making art, I’m spending time with my wonderful family and friends. That being said I’m usually always making something, I gain so much happiness from making something new everyday!

5. do you have 3-5 things on your bucket list that you could share with us?

I want to travel to Japan, design my own toys, and read more often 🙂
