Recycled Spirits of Iron Sculptures – Daniel Klennert

Recycled Spirits of Iron Sculptures – Daniel Klennert

Daniel Klennerts "Spirit of Iron" Sculpture Park is a "must visit" , especially if you in that area visiting Mt Rainier National Park, and come via ASHFORD, WA. It's right there by the main highway. The sculpture park is  titled Ex-Nihilo (pronounced "Ex Nee-Hill-o" - one of several ways to pronounce it according to Webster's!) which means something created from out of nothing in Latin. Ex-Nihilo is located right alongside State Route 706 on the way to the west entrance to Mount Rainier National Park in beautiful Washington State.  Dan Klennert's sculptures, Spirits of Iron, have been displayed all across North America. "Bloodline," his larger than life-size thoroughbred created almost entirely out of horse shoes, and "Cleopatra," a life-size mare welded together from bits of scrap metal, charmed thousands at the Thoroughbred Breeders Association Equine Art Show. "Oscar" the fish eighteen feet long and twelve feet high was the catch of the day at the Salmon Days Festival in Issaquah, Washington. "The Angel...

Gig Harbour Tidefest, WA, Dec 7th & 8th 2013

More than 150 Artists will be displaying their art and crafts! Gig Harbor High School’s annual TideFest brings in artists and high-quality artisans from all over the Northwest. The festival raises money for the school’s activities and athletics programs, including the Speech and Debate team and the school newspaper. About 150 artists fill the 118 available spaces, selling everything from glass art, sculpture, pottery, jewelry and clothing to paintings, wood products and leather bags. 'Everything is made in original by the artist. It’s stuff that you cannot find at a mall. It’s really unique kinds of items,' says Eleanor Ledbetter, former TideFest chairperson. Eleanor started the show nearly three decades ago. The Festival has a new Chairperson for 2013: Alyse Yeaman, an Art Teacher at Gig Harbor High School. The juried show uses professional artists to screen the applicants, and all vendors must screen each year, regardless of how many times they’ve participated.

Woodhog pottery – wood fired pottery by Jody Willenborg-Cable, Whidbey Island, WA

Woodhog pottery – wood fired pottery by Jody Willenborg-Cable, Whidbey Island, WA

WOODHOG POTTERY by Jody Willenborg-Cable: I have been making pots forever. I like the way they look at each stage in their formation, and I like the way they are transformed by fire. It is a joy to be able to participate in such a profoundly human activity. At times I feel a connection with our ancestors who have been handling clay from the beginning. We built a giant cave like kiln called an anagama in our back yard. The kiln is fueled by wood and would easily hold a smart car. A few hours into the three day firing It shoots flames out the chimney like an excited dragon. After dark this is a fun thing to watch. The finished pots are beautiful earth tones with ash drips. When we unload the kiln, after a week of cooling, there are hundreds of pots in the yard -- like a sea of brown. Every piece is completely different from any other;...

Leonie’s Treasures – mixed media art – Olympia, WA

I am a mixed media artist and create one off treasures. Living in the forest outside Olympia, WA.I Recently I decided to create "Wood Fairies" , as the woods inspired me, and the abundance of moss, leaves, bark, wood, and other natural "ingredients" makes it a pleasure to be creative. I also make my own natural dyes and inks from wood, plants, leaves, vegetables and more, to apply to my fairies or the 100% silk scarves I create in my forest backgarden studio. Visit again in the future as I will upload some more images as time allows. Thanks for visiting Leonie's Treasures     PLEASE VISIT MY ETSY SHOP - CLICK ON BANNER BELOW: Contact the Artandcraftconnection, if you have questions or wish to buy some of my treasures....
