LAST YEAR FOR COHN-STONE PUMPKINS
As artists ourselves, Katie and I understand the need to pursue new avenues. There is a certain amount of production in what they do, but they are artists first and the need to find new paths is compelling. The studio is planning to introduce more one of a kind pieces and do other work as well.
New Artist in Gallery
Kinetic Artist, R. Bruce Salinger is our newest addition to our family of American Craft Artists. Bruce is a master kinetic clock maker and his clock, which you can find in our front window, it is titled, “Big Bong”. It lives up to it’s name, at the top of each hour this clock’s hammer will strike once with a ringing “bong”. Within the clock there are little characters that are moving the gears as if they are the reason this clock is working. It is a fabulous clock!
