Jewelry artist Kory Delannoy creates intricate silver wire-wrapped pendants intertwined with precious stones. He masterfully transforms the metal material into fluid organic-shaped forms that ethereally clasp around gems.”  FH&G

 

Tourmaline, Watermelon Tourmaline, Peridot, Red Garnet, Citrine and Welo Opal. 

Sterling silver wrapped pendants starting at $200.
.

Kory has been working as a silver wire wrapping jewelry artist for over eight years. He draws inspiration from the beaches, forests, and mountains surrounding the Pacific Northwest.

Only the highest quality sterling silver and natural gemstones are used to craft these
creations. Various wires are intentionally wrapped by hand into a whimsical design
creating a variety of coils, braiding and three-dimensional shapes. For this reason, each
and every one of these creations is one of a kind and features unique details.” 
KD

What is the connection with history in Kory’s jewelry, you ask?

A: While in college, he traveled to Paris and fell in love with its architecture. And so, in his work, there are elements of medieval and mystical themes.

Kory integrates opposition from the gemstones with the weaving and wrapping of the pendant to create an incredible piece of jewelry. Now at Fairweather’s through October, November, and December.

Glass Nest 2022

A new piece out of the kiln! I’m continuing my fascination with nests. Something about them just intrigues me and makes me happy.”   Glass artist Carolyn Myers Lindberg

As a former ceramicist, I’ve worked in glass since 2012 and recently moved to Seaside from Portland.  I received early instruction at Bullseye Glass, and the rest of my work and style was developed through my own experience and exploration.  I want my creations to be used and held. Like many artists, I find inspiration in nature, whether the sea, the sky, or the forest, and I’m constantly surprised by beauty in unexpected places.  I love exploring and experimenting with color and texture that I find in the natural world close to home or faraway places worldwide.” CML

Embroidered linen book cloth with a handmade paper journal by Christine Trexel.

New artisanal indigo textile hand-dyed fabric by Christine Trexel on a trio of handmade journals.

This farm-to-book paper is harvested by Christine Trexel from the many plants throughout her gardens. She grows New Zealand flax, iris, crocosmia, or anything that has a long parallel fiber. Recently Trexel has perfected her hues in book cover textiles and mastered the art of deep blue indigo dyeing on textiles using a powdered mix from a fellow organic grower.

Everything is uniquely handmade and harvested from her farm on the North Coast of Oregon. Christine Trexel is passionate about using natural ingredients; therefore, all her material is ethical and sustainable.

Christine lived in Panama for years, where she learned to harvest and process plants from her garden to make paper for the books and boxes she creates. The wealth of vegetation forested experimentations and a great love of learning about making books.

“It is truly a magical experience to convert a growing thing into a beautiful piece of paper.”

Christine Trexel firmly believes a day without time aside for reading and writing is an incomplete day.

“People often say I couldn’t bring myself to write in a journal, but on the contrary; the book’s life would be unfulfilled without their contribution.”

Christine uses high-quality materials in constructing her books and boxes believing that each individual piece deserves the best. The thought of someone writing on the blank pages pleases her. Perhaps her creation helps facilitate their creation; what kind of writings might there be—ideas, fancies, dreams, fears, hopes, despairs, comforts, musings, histories—anything could become part of it. Trexel often lectures about her work at Fairweather’s during Art Walks.

Christine Trexel has achieved many Doing Good Works ™ endeavors; teaching, mentoring, advising, and leading.

Christine Trexel is a member of Focus on Book Arts, a group of book artists dedicated to making educational experiences available.

The conference attracts participants from around the country with a wide variety of workshops taught by well-known book artists. It is an opportunity for learning new techniques and offering time to network with some truly amazing artists.

I use hand made paper, decorative paper, book cloth, book board, brass, and high quality print paper in making my books and boxes often incorporating images embossed, printed, or adhered to the covers.  Every element of the construction of the books and boxes is done by hand, including hand sewing the pages of the book.” Christine Trexel

And, too, I have experience in basic book repair for those favorite books that are beginning to suffer from wear.”  CT

 “Fused and Smooshed” glass platter by Christine Downs. Color circles of grape, orange, and raspberry.

I like to play with the colors and shapes, and this medium gives me the most inspiration.”  

Slumped and fused glass bowl by Christine Downs.

“Some colors combine with others and react in various ways because of the chemicals in the pigments, art is therapy.” 

An Illinois native who earned an art therapy degree from Trenton State College in New Jersey and a master’s degree in special education from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Christine Downs divides her time between making her artwork, traveling, and teaching special education. 

She taught PSU Interpersonal Neurobiology and co-taught Meditation & the Brain with Caverly Morgan, founder of Portland’s Peace in Schools. She makes art with kindergarten through 5th-grade students at Pioneer School during the school year. She volunteers as a Mindfulness Facilitator for Camp Blue Spruce, a week-long summer camp for kids. When traveling, with her husband, dog, and cat she often offers to work as a substitute teacher.

 
Slumped glass bowls by Christine Downs
 
The sheet glass is laid over a mold during the slumping process and put in a kiln up to 1300 degrees Fahrenheit. As the glass is heated, gravity pulls it down into the mold. Once the glass assumes its desired shape in the kiln, it is slowly returned to room temperature. 

“Glass bubbles can form and appear as if seeded. That is a real surprise!” Christine Downs

The Pacific Northwest is known for great glass—and Portland glass artist Christine Downs pays homage to the area through some of her fused forms.

Christine Downs creates fused-glass bowls, plates, platters, tile, and, new for Fairweathers, letter openers in a 20-inch by 20-inch kiln.

About the LIFE FORMS of sea stars:
Sea stars are invertebrates related to sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and sand dollars, all of which have spiny skin that helps to protect them from predators. Sea stars are saltwater fanatics. Usually, they live for about 10 years, but some can live up to 35 years. They eat clams, snails, or oysters.

The baskets begin as ghost nets: fishing rope washed ashore on the beaches. Cleaned, unraveled, and restitched, the colorful rope becomes a collection of unique baskets accented with local stones and other treasures. The color and condition of each unique piece of rope serves as an artist’s palette – from freshly cut potwarp lines at local fisheries, to wild and eroded flotsam weathered by months or years at sea. —Emily Miller

Mary Bottita creates Folded Book Art. 

I fold the pages and make a word story come alive. Each book is made very carefully by calculating the number of pages combined with the number of letters into a unique fold of individual pages to form a word, image, or number; anything is possible.”  MB 

A custom folded book can tell a story in many ways. I love working with customers to use books to tell their personal stories. Whether it be their names, initials, or life-changing words.”  Mary Bottita

Books have more uses than might be obvious. Sure, you can press flowers in a heavy one and set out the pretty ones as decoration. And, too, you can read the darn things. But turning a hardcover book into a three-dimensional sculpture is a work of art. Indeed, sculptures can be created by making 100s or 1000s of precise folds within the pages of reclaimed, preowned, vintage books, and new pristine books.

A bride-to-be recently asked if a book fold could be used as a cake top for her wedding. She requested a name and Mary folded a sample with HOLLAND as a last name.

Mary Bottita is a Fairweather treasure.

Indeed,, at times, creating can be a little fiddly and time-consuming. The art depends on the level of detail in a pattern, and you have to deal with many folds per book. I also offer a variety of ribbon colors and customized embroidery covers. Special orders take up to 6 weeks to complete.

Mary Bottita is a native Oregonian.
