When starting down his path, BenJamin was given the words from another artist, "make what you like" - from those words Ben Jamin has found that the warm energy we all feel in great art comes from the artists who truly love what they create. Ben creates his work using a plasma torch to create relief in thick steel plate. He then refines and polishes each piece before adding some color by way of chemical reaction, or patina. Ben has been refining his techniques for almost 15 years, and the quality of his patinas and finishes reveal just that. Be sure to take a look at his web site www.BJaminCustoms.com

John Kessler’s chosen medium, sculpture, serves as a lens to the serenity and truth of the wild. He peers through this lens, observes the full splendor and substance of what lies beneath, and then creates it anew.
Kessler’s sculptures give the impression of being somehow alive, capable of communicating the most essential truths. Gargantuan bears rest on their paws or stand sentinel on jutting rocks. Their eyes are more than two holes carved from expanded obsidian. They are deep and mysterious in a way that only nature or John Kessler could make them.

Every piece you see is designed and crafted by the heart and hands of this one woman. All Mountain Mama Silver pieces are constructed from .925 sterling silver, & feature genuine turquoise, or other natural stones.
Her style is her own, but is influenced by old-time cowboy culture, stones and stylings prolific in the Southwest, a modern aesthetic, and the rugged beauty of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
By blending two of natures alluring elements, wood and stone, Tina creates functional, culinary accessories. Her Cutting Boards, Gathering Boards, Serving Platters and Dipping Trays will elevate your daily or special occasions.
Tina meticulously searches through arborists’ wood lots looking for the perfectly flawed, cracked and knot filled hardwoods that other woodworkers pass by because of these deficits. She chooses smaller pieces of wood that will be enhanced with Stone like turquoise, lapis, malachite or chrysocolla, and inlays these into these cracks and voids. Following a similar method to the Japanese art of Kintsugi, where broken and fractured pottery is mended with gold or silver dust, thereby restoring the fragments to a functional and more beautiful piece. http://knot-wong.squarespace.com/
Marilyn's art is reverse painting on acrylics. Yep, she paints in reverse from the most forward elements of the piece to the furthest back. You have to see it in person to truly appreciate its magic. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds her home at the base of the Mt. Evans wilderness area in Idaho Springs, Colorado. Painting in a modern impressionist style, Marilyn's art is infused with brilliant light and color. Her use of textured, bold brush strokes magnifies the vivid impressionist style.
The craftsman behind Kell Designs is a geologist turned silversmith and lapidary artist. All pieces start with rough stone found in the field or purchased directly from miners in the American West. This rough is then cut, shaped, and polished into cabochons for use in final pieces or cut for the inlay process. All the metal work starts with sheet and wire or is casted from recycled silver and casting grain from silver produced in America. The lost wax method is used with wax models and other organic materials most notably plant parts such as alder cones and willow twigs. Tufa carving and sand casting are also used for a rustic look and truly unique pieces. This artist truly does it all from scratch with materials sourced as close to home as possible. See their direct to consumer website at www.kelldesigns.com and check out their instagram profile @kell.designs.
