There will be copper salmon wall pieces by Walter Massey, silver and gold with gemstones from Solarwind Studios, enamel work jewelry by Michele Raney, etched glass by Jerry Perrett, watercolors by Hung Pham, raku tile murals by Jack Ferrell, hand-forged steel sculptures by Gunter Reimnitz, hand-forged knives by Jim Stewart, felted accessories by Bag Ladies, handwoven and hand-knitted clothing by Suzanne de la Torre, lamp-worked beads by Michael Barley, and wooden furniture by James Cole, Fernando Flecha and Olaf Heintz.
