The County is home to a close-knit community of visual, media and craft artists, many of them working out of their own homes or offering tours of their studios.
I'll let the photos speak for themselves ...
(PS - that pretty, shiny thing right there? It's not even supposed to be art. It's a colour tester from Mark Armstrong's workshop. A piece knocked off the end of a stick, likely destined for the recycle bin. But I love it.)

Beyond the studio circuit, keep your eyes open. You'll find spectacular art in the unlikeliest of places:
|Handcrafted barrels and "firkins" made by Pete Bradford, one of only two coopers in Canada|
Carriage House Cooperage
|Framed tin tile on recycled barn door, Pomodoro Restaurant|
|Twisted glass chandelier, 66 Gilead Distillery|
And then some things just lend themselves to being beautiful on their own ...

Beautiful stuff. I love the glasswork and the cooperage!ReplyDelete
