If you've been following my "life as an artist" story or spent anytime checking out this website, you know that my husband, David, and I have a gallery in Wimberley, Texas. We opened Wildflower Art Gallery in February 2015 and are happy to be celebrating our second summer there! In addition to my paintings and gifts, you'll find some wonderful clay work by Canyon Lake ceramicist Kathy Rigdon and beautiful jewelry by Lynette Clauser of New Braunfels, Holly Glenn of Austin and, our newest addition, Barbara Blaschke of Canyon Lake.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Kathy works in several techniques but what she is best known for are her horse hair pottery and her raku work. At any given time, we have several of each available at the gallery in various sizes. Prices range from $24 to $280. Kathy earned her BA in Fine Arts from Southwest Texas State in 1991 and started her home-based studio in 1997.
Lynette creates one-of-a-kind fused glass jewelry often paired in sets of necklaces, earrings and even matching pins. She combines her excellent sense of design and superb craftsmanship in each of her creations. Lynette's prices generally range from $30 to $85. In addition to working in fused glass, Lynette has an extensive background in stained glass, pastels and mixed media.
We are thrilled to have Holly's hand-wrapped wire jewelry and to feature her unique Bluebonnet pendants and earrings that she created just for us! Most of the pieces range from $20 to $40. According to Holly, she designs and creates unique artisan jewelry pieces out of materials including raw stones and crystals. "My jewelry is chic, affordable and by nature, one of a kind. Each piece takes on a personality of its own, and hopefully you will find a piece that speaks to you!"
Barbara creates jewelry that is as elegant as it is unique. Working with materials including gold, silver and semi-precious stones, her prices range from about $110 up to $500. "I love experimenting with unusual combinations of stones and metal," she says. "Agates and Jaspers particularly appeal to me and I try to set them in a way that complements their swirls and whorls in all their glory." We are happy to be the Wimberley area source for Barbara's beautiful rings, bracelets and necklaces that will compliment any outfit with a special panache.
