DONNA D’AQUINO (DONNA D’AQUINO STUDIOS)
METAL JEWELRY AND SCULPTURE
Combining geometric lines and vivid colors, my elegant hand-crafted jewelry is the culmination of a life-long fascination with structural elements and a love of clean, vibrant design. The result is lightweight jewelry that is bold, adventurous, and easy to wear. Whether a distinctive one-of-a-kind necklace, or colorful earrings, all my work is hand-fabricated using steel, sterling silver, 18 karat gold, and colorful, durable powder-coated brass in a range of colorways and sizes.
Working intuitively, I draw upon a cache of visual memories: bridges, elevated roadways, telephone towers, and city scaffolding. Through arranging and rearranging, simple lines and basic shapes accumulate into voluminous structures, in other instances these forms are distilled down to their essential elements. Monumental or minimal, a singular art object, or part of a small product line, each jewelry piece provides the wearer an opportunity to comfortably take up a little more space.
HEATHER TUTTLE (HEATHER TUTTLE DESIGNS)
WOOD AND MIXED MEDIA
SALT LAKE CITY, UT
I create funny faces for happy people. I make brightly colored, whimsical animal or human forms with slightly goofy expressions or over sized noses.
I worked as a graphic designer for 33 years at a local newspaper in SLC, Ut., but happily am now retired and can turn off the computer and create something more tangible. Something without design guidelines. Something that doesn’t have a high potential of ending up under the litter box. Creating something hand made and original is more rewarding than I imagined.
I believe my work displays the sense of amusement I find from the world revolving around me ...and of dealing with an often unpredictable head of hair. I hope you enjoy it.
JEREMY AND ADAM NEFF (J.J. POTTS)
SALT LAKE CITY, UT
My brother and I have always enjoyed tinkering around and making things. We started making pottery in high school and really enjoyed it. After high school we continued making and selling pottery in our families garage. We started branching out and making creative garden art. One thing led to another and we opened up a ceramics studio. We continued to work in the studio and attend college on the side. My brother graduated with a degree in material science and I am working on a degree in geology. We have no formal art training; we just try to make our pieces look as good as possible. We enjoy making and creating new garden art creations that people can enjoy. Our favorite part about doing ceramics is getting to open up the kiln every morning and see how the pieces turned out; it’s like Christmas every day. Well not quite but it's exciting.
SCOTT & SHAWN JOHNSON (MY GLASS FLOWERS)
GLASS AND METAL
My lifelong passion for art has taken many turns and settled here in this perfect place combining glass, metal and color focused toward one of nature’s treasures, the flower.” Scott Johnson was introduced to the magical lifestyle of being an artist as a child, as he worked with and learned from his father, who was a sculptor. After years of working with bronze and ceramic, Johnson chose to create in glass and metal. Now, working together with his wife Shawn, The two artists derive inspiration from nature—creating colors and shapes to enlighten and beautify the environments of their collectors. In the studio, Johnson kiln-forms and cold-works the glass into contemporary free-form flowers in a wide variety of colors. Copper and aluminum are hand sculpted in flowing motion to compliment the flower shapes, then attached to formed metal bases.
