Curt Gillespie, OIl, "Sunrise - Humboldt and Baldy"




Most of Linnea's products are from alpaca fiber that she raises on their ranch just south of Westcliffe.  It is very satisfying to take the fiber from the animal all the way to a finished product.  Alpaca is incredibly soft and warm.

35 years as a professional potter, Karen's work for the past decade has been Raku and Terra Sigillatta. Currently she is working with ferric chloride vapor fuming which is done outside the kiln while the piece is still approximately 1500 degrees F and is applied with an air brush before the post firing reduction. It creates the beautiful gold luster that seems to emit a light of its own. Karen makes both functional and art pieces.  You can view more of Karen's work on her Facebook page.
