The rains have finally cleared! To celebrate, come enjoy some much needed sunshine by taking a stroll down Main Street Hendersonville. While you’re downtown come on in and see us at the Silver Fox Gallery! We have an array of new items for you to see.
Featured in our window this month we have pottery created by Minnesota artist, Kerry Brooks. Brooks has been a potter since 1988, making work that she intends for users to enjoy both for its function and its art. She learned to throw in Ann Arbor, Michigan and has been working as a full-time studio potter in Minneapolis since 1997. Today, she works primarily in wheel-thrown, high-fired stoneware. Brooks’ pottery is highly functional. Her pots are fired to about 2400 degrees in a natural gas kiln so each piece is very durable as well as food-, oven-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe. The glazes are also durable and will not lose their vibrant colors over time.
Alongside Kerry Brooks’ beautiful pottery are stone stemmed wine glasses created by artist group, Sea Stones. The sea stones themselves are made by Mother Nature and gently rounded through years of rolling in the ocean. They are carefully collected from rivers and beaches all over New England and add tactile, natural beauty to any décor. The wine glasses embody an intriguing sword-in-the-stone design and feel great in your hand. The form is inspired by cairns, the carefully balanced stacks of stones that mark the way along hiking trails in our nearby forests. Since no two are alike, the design also makes it easy to recognize your wine glass.
Of course, we have many other artists for you to see; so come on down and take a look at everything we have to offer! And, since Father’s Day is just around the corner, all of our handmade regular priced in-stock watches are 20% off! We will see you soon!
