KARIN WHITE - Jewelry
Working with metal clays, sterling silver, copper and gemstones, her earthy pieces are one of a kind art, meant to be worn every day. Her signature piece, a bracelet made of an antique or vintage spoon, has earned her the nickname “the spoon lady.” Each piece is hand hammered and stamped with a word or saying using antique tools and then polished to bring out its individual texture.

ROBIN HARRIS RICKARD - Wood burning (pyrography)
“Practicing the ancient art of Henna began in 2008 with the encouragement of friends. Her passion and appreciation for temporal human experience drives her to explore and redefine who we are and how we express where the mundane of life meets the magical. Utilizing written and visual symbolism of both collective and personal experience, she also enjoys bringing the beauty of henna into the hearth. EnshrineDesign: Henna Body Adornment and the EnshrineDesign line of hand decorated wood burned kitchen utensils, bowls, platters and more are a continually unfolding creative process, where the practical IS the magical!" You can find Robin continuing her pursuit of henna art at East and West coast henna conferences.

About our collaboration: Robin and Karin met in 2010 through a series of happy mishaps at local festivals where they showcased their work. Both inspired by nature and adept at putting a new twist on traditional designs....it was a natural step for the two to work collaboratively to create something new to share at Gallery 23 in the month of March. Stop by and see what they have to offer!
