One of a Kind Cuff by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

Irene Jalowayski is a Florida native who was raised in Miami, Florida but spent much of her adult life in California. Eleven years ago Irene returned to West Palm Beach.  Working with glass has allowed her to express creativity and love for color, shape and form. Until this year all of Irene’s work had been with fused glass. She  creates sculptures, functional vessels, bowls, vases and Judaica including menorahs and mezuzahs.

More recently, Irene began exploring cast glass.  Casting is more complicated and difficult than working with fused glass. A clay sculpture is made first and then cast in plaster. Once the plaster is dry, the mold is filled with glass and fired to 1450 degrees for 38 hours. Then mold is broken away from the glass sculpture. The resulting piece of solid glass beautiful and substantial. Each piece is always one of kind!

“Under The Sea” Cast Glass by Irene Jalowayski 

Irene chose to work with glass because says she has always loved to look at it and to feel it. Long before she began to work with glass she was collecting it. Her personal glass collection includes pieces by American, Italian and Swedish glass artists. She stated “Creating my own glass pieces has not stopped me from purchasing a beautiful piece of glass if I fall in love with it”.

Irene’s inspiration comes from what is around and from whatever she can imagine. An image in her mind is meticulously designed in glass. Inspiration does not come in only one form. The sight of a lovely flower can be an inspiration.

A wonderful painting can spark an image of something to be made in glass. She also has been inspired by the paintings of Picasso, Miro, Matisse, Mondrian, and Chagall. Her favorite designs are simple, colorful, and pleasing to the eye.

Dichroic Glass and Silver Necklace by Irene Jalowayski

About five years ago she started making beautiful silver and glass jewelry. “The glass colors just naturally go with silver, as they look so beautiful together”.   She also loves making silver and cast glass jewelry with sparkling dichroic glass.

To some art must be dainty, pretty and realistic. The pieces of art that do not fit into this category have a special look all of their own. Within our 3 full gallery showrooms you will see these unique pieces of art created and featured by some of our 40 local artists.

 

artisansginblischei14488968_10209808759556880_1959857807_o

Ceramic dolls and figurative sculptures that are kind of creepy with bizarre features and rare adornments. A metal art sculpture created with hundreds of large steel welded nails or an enormous vintage wood and wire mirror wall sculpture that reflects the onlooker in almost a hundred views as they stare at it.

Absurd boxes that tell unique stories when you read them with your eyes. Each object within these 3D boxes seem to speak words with a tale to tell.

Unnatural shaped jewelry that is wearable in a way that is not traditional with skulls and wire thorns or abstract shapes to adorn your body. Wooden sculptures that combine oddities and absurd found objects.

Hand felted wool characters and creatures that seem to be following you with their eyes as you leave the gallery show room. They are so haunting they seem to come alive to your touch.
Bizarre and extreme art that appeals to the person who likes the out of the ordinary look. Definitely one-of-a-kind Absurd Oddities!!!

An artist is always thinking outside of the box. When we were young children in school, our art teacher told us to “Color within the lines”. True artists never listened to the rules. They explored their creativity outside of the boundaries!

artisansboxxedimg_2546
Artisans On The Ave is proud to showcase the talents of our artists who decided to think outside of the box. We are so glad they did. No matter what size a box is, an artist can fill it with their own handmade creations. As the old saying goes “Good things come in small packages”. We are proving that great art no matter what the medium or size, sometimes cannot be confined to a single box!

Handmade Wearable Art by Gabriele Kraus

 

 

The art can’t wait to jump out of the four walls of the box that holds it and become part of your space. Explore the 3 full showrooms of the gallery and find the boxed art. Each artist has chosen a piece of work for their representation of “filling the box”. Some of the art fits into the box and others are bursting out of the sides to show you how original and unique each piece is.

ArtisansHotGlassinKilnAugust2016IMG_9181

Hot Kiln Glass

 

 

Hot Kiln Fused Glass: The Egyptians and Romans used the technique of an ancient fused glass process. Many intricate bowls, beautiful jewelry and decorative fused glass wall art pieces were made throughout the centuries using this method. With glass technology artists now have a greater knowledge of the method and endless creativity flourishes in their work.

 

 

ArtisansHOTencasusticandshellacafterbeingfiredIMG_6756

Encaustic Close Up

 

Encaustic Hot Wax: The word “encaustic” is taken from the Greek and means “to burn in”. In the encaustic process, pigmented wax is applied and then fused to a surface with heat. The broad range of encaustic medium, paint, surface effects, mixed media and a luminous translucency make each piece of art one of a kind.

 

 

ArtisansHOThammered metal

 

Welding: Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion. In addition to melting the base metal, a filler material is often added to the joint to form a pool of molten material (the weld pool) that cools to form a joint pressure which may be used in conjunction with heat to produce a weld.

 

 

 

 

Soldering:  Soldering is a process in which two or more items (usually metal) are joined together by melting and putting a filler metal (solder) into the joint, the filler metal having a lower melting point than the adjoining metal.

 

 

ArtisansHOTKellymanganeroIMG_1228

Sculpture by Kelly Manganaro

 

Polymer Clay: Polymer clays are manmade modeling materials composed of the same basic building materials: gels, fillers, plasticizers, coloring agents, and resins. Polymer clays are produced in a great range of colors that are sometimes mixed together creating a millefiori caning effect. The artist makes the sculptured piece by hand and then brings it to its hardened state with a temperature of up to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

ArtisansHOTMarshabaliberiIMG_6520

Fused Glass by Marsha Balbierri

 

Enameling: Enameling is the art of fusing glass to metal. Enamel is applied to clean metal.  The piece is heated in either a kiln or with a torch to a very high temperature of 1500, until the glass enamel melts and fuses to the metal.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pottery by Tracy Rosof Petersen

 

Pottery and Ceramics:  Pottery has been made by hand since prehistoric times. Early uses of clay centered on the construction of functional vessels and figurative sculptures, as the clay was hardened by baking it in the sun. There are many different techniques used when working with the various selections of clay. After the clay is hand-built or turned on a potter’s wheel it is fired in a hot kiln. The piece is glazed and re-fired.
Raku is a low-fire pottery technique in which pieces are placed in a preheated kiln and brought up to temperature quickly. Then  a combustible material is added, covered, and allowed to smoke over a period of time. The element of surprise is always fun with the end results!

Her selection of seashells on beautiful silk twine will adorn your body and make you feel beautiful with a natural sense of wearable art. She turns vintage wooden boxes into works of art for jewelry or purses with ocean-themed images of applied seashells, driftwood, seagrass, and coral.

Basketry/Ceramic Vessel by Bonnie Bruner

 

 

Bonnie Brunner uses her talents to make unique basketry.  She patiently hand weaves naturally dyed colorful strands of sea grape vines, twigs, and twine which are sometimes combined with hand-built ceramic bases.  Each vessel has a personalized look, as her artistry resembles the waves of the mighty white-tipped ocean crashing against the hot sandy beach. They will make quite a statement sitting in your cottage by the sea.

Fused Glass Fish by Betty Wilson

 

Ocean creatures and the hues of neon colored tropical fish come to life within the alluring fused glass created by artist Betty Wilson. The rays of natural light reflect and bounce off the different species of fish she creates with glass.

 

 

Ebba Tinwin wraps beautiful sea glass with wire to create gorgeous jewelry for that special someone (and yourself). She selects the shards of sea glass that have been tossed to the shores of the ocean through the rough waves. She selects her palette of colors and choice of blues, greens, whites, golds, and turquoise and then polishes each one before wrapped in wires of silver and gold.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Herbert Brosky hand carves tropical birds out of found pieces of wood. His amazing talents of come to life in his realistic carvings. A retired dentist, he uses his intricate dental tools to hand carve the details of his artistic birds. He then delicately paints each one to make them come to life. His flamingo wears a beautiful coat of pink and stands perched on stilt legs, while the sea gull’s underbelly shows as if you are standing on the ocean pier watching them fly away. The sand piper sits on a rock of driftwood aged from the salt of the ocean.

Artisans On The Ave Gallery is featuring six women artists including: Barbara Bailey, Susan Peck, Mary Ellen Dohrs, Ebba Tinwin, Doris Gilden, and Edrian Thomidis. For centuries women have proved their strength and talents in a variety of ways. The women artists of Artisans On The Ave Gallery are no exception.

 

 

 

Each of these artists have discovered the arts in a personal way in her life.  Her calling may have appeared as a little girl drawing with the vast rainbow of exciting colors and creating masterpieces.  Maybe she had to put her art career on hold as she raised her family, making being the best mother to her family her priority. She might have stayed in the background of her partner’s career as she silently dreamed of someday having her name in lights. Then the timing in her life allowed her the opportunity to show the world her talents and share her exciting creations to everyone.

 

 

Meet The 6 Women Inspired:

“Sumos” by Mary Ellen Dohrs

 

 

Mary Ellen Dohr’s joy of sculpturing comes from the luxurious feel of terra cotta in her hands and the creation of turning her thoughts into finished forms.  A lifetime of experience in other disciplines as an artist influenced her progression to her success as a sculptor.

ArtisansME.Dohrs_26

“Lydia” by Mary Ellen Dohrs

Industrial Design to sculpture was an easy transition, basically similar in the use of volume, form and color. But it was the tactile quality that made it so attractive. The expression of movement and vitality appear in all of her works”. The strength of her sculpture is in the energy expressed. She delights in tackling all subject matter including forms that range from aggressive, and masculine to quiet inner calm and peaceful female figures. “In art works, just as in life experiences, there should always be a place for whimsy and a good laugh as evidenced by silly pots and ubiquitous frogs. Each day brings a new opportunity to create something beautiful out of this simple material… mud”.

 

 

#4 Ebba TinWin

 

ArtisansEbba TinWin--Wildlife Refuge

“Wildlife Refuge” by Ebba TinWin

Ebba grew up by the wind and waves of the Baltic Sea in Northern Germany. Before settling in the United States, Ebba spent seven years in her husband’s native country of Burma (now Myanmar) in Southeast Asia. Many of her collages were inspired by the vibrant colors of the Orient. Ebba holds a MA in education, but her passion has always involved the arts. Her career includes managing an expressive art gallery and the precise instruction involving collage art using her adventures of world traveling and memories to tell a visual story on paper.

“Marsh At Dusk” by Ebba TinWin 

 

An avid beachcomber, Ebba enjoys turning what she finds into unique creations. She presents her beach glass designs with pride, delighting in each piece as a true gift of Nature. The translucent colors of what the magnificent ocean washes ashore are then made by hand into a forever piece of jewelry to be worn and loved. No two pieces are ever alike so each one is an original work of art. Ebba also takes her talents to canvas and paints in a variety of different styles including abstract.

 

 

 

 

#5  Doris Gilden

“From The Heart” by Doris Gilden

She decided to explore ceramics as a medium for artistic expression. Working with green-ware and slip, Doris creates unique vessels, plates, and vases using her fashion background as the inspired motif of elegant women and their silhouettes on her ceramics, which she considers her canvas. To create her three-dimensional finished product she uses a selection of numerous materials with her clay.

Mixed Media by Doris Gilden

 

 

 

Doris is a member of Women in the Visual Arts and the National Organization of Women Artists.

John’s pottery is classically inspired, elegant with a contemporary twist. As John says” I like to make pottery that will get used every day. A piece can sit on a shelf and look pretty, but it comes alive when it is a part of our daily life.” People are starting to appreciate handmade objects once again. They realize that a beautifully cooked meal is enhanced by being served on a handmade plate or serving dish. Every day should be a special occasion.”

“Creative Spirit” Hand made polymer clay flowers 

by Lori Axelrod

As Lori expresses, “I love exploring new color palettes, and I hope that others will experience the same delight that I get when they see my work!  It is my connection with color and pattern that drew me to polymer clay as the perfect medium for my creative outlet. It is the intensely saturated colors and the details that I can achieve with polymer clay, combined with the wonderful tactile experience of the clay that has me hooked”.

Lori started to experiment with all of the mixed media products and incorporated the polymer clay with the mixed media.  There are no boundaries or limits to what additional items you choose to incorporate into the polymer clay to tell your story.

Lori tells us, ” I use the polymer clay flowers and fiber as my focal point which adds the dreamy iridescence near the center of the flowers. I then layer with gauze, gelato pens, acrylic paint, stamped images, pigment ink, embossing powder and additional mixed media. I’m always challenging myself and experimenting with new techniques and styles. Polymer Clay has allowed me to find the creative spirit within. My drive to create is fierce and strong as I passionately put my heart into all of the art I create”.
