Black Cat Artworks

Black Art WorksElaine and Bill Snell have been married for 20 years and work as a team to create their metal artwork in Greenville S.C.

Most of Elaine and Bill's work to date has been done using natural mild steel and a plasma cutter. A piece begins with an idea and sketches that explore form, composition, and detail. As the idea is refined, the sketches are combined into a single line drawing that ultimately becomes the pattern for the final piece. The intricate detail that characterizes their work must be carefully planned in advance to survive the intense heat of the cutting process. Too fine and the detail simply burns away, too coarse and the delicacy is lost. It is maintaining this balance between the material and the torch that shapes the final piece. Each designs fiery origins are left very much in evidence, giving each piece a unique appearance. Each piece is hand finished and coated with an acrylic clear coat.

Elaine and Bill first took their work to market in early 2003, and the on-going creation and evolution of this line has been and continues to be fun, challenging, and interesting. Elliott Metal Works metal art is now sold in catalogs and in galleries across the United States.

Paper Scissors Rock

Decorative Artworks from Paper Scissors RockPaper Scissors Rock clocks and magnets are reproductions of original paintings by Northwest Artist Pamela Corwin and are created in her studio in Olympia, Washington. Pamela works in acrylics and watercolors, sometimes adding elements of collage to her work. She has been in business since 1981 and her work has been featured on several national television shows and in magazines such as House Beautiful, Seventeen and Pacific Northwest. In 1996 she was commissioned to paint an egg for the White House Easter tree and designed the Pike Place Market Festival Poster in 2000. Pamela also teaches local classes on the business of crafts. 

'For as long as I can remember I have painted, sketched, and made things out of anything on hand. As a child, I drew on rocks, napkins, my jewelry boxes, and painted on the lamp and clock next to my bed (much to my mother's dismay, I am sure). Art has always been the way I lose myself, calm myself, it is meditative for me. It comes more from a drive than a desire. I don't know how not to do it. It's as much what keeps me alive as food and oxygen'

The Porcelain Garden

The Porcelain GardenThe Porcelain Garden was created in 1982 when Liesa Smith and Marty Kubicki merged our creative talents.

Our first creations were functional household ceramics, with sculpted flower decorations. During the early 1980s, we started carving in translucent porcelain, and enjoyed the direction that our work was taking us.

The Porcelain Garden originated the concept of Lithophanes as nightlights, at a time when few artists were making tasteful and artistic nightlights. Nightlights are still to this day the most popular form of our Lithophanes.

Our long-term commitment to supplying the highest quality product possible has resulted in an enormously loyal following and notable respect in the American Handcrafts Community. The Porcelain Garden strives to provide an excellent level of customer service for one of the most unique products in the world.

Tucker-Jones House

Tavern Puzzles from Tucker-Jones HouseThe Tavern Puzzle Collection

Tavern Puzzles® are reproductions of a type of puzzle traditionally forged by blacksmiths to amuse their friends at country taverns and inns. Keeping with tradition, a museum-trained blacksmith from Long Island has reproduced some of these antique designs as well as his own original designs. All the puzzles are handcrafted and individually assembled. Each puzzle is mechanical in nature; removal of the object piece does not rely on force or trickery.
