But, why C2C? Let’s go back in time.
Cyndi moved to Vermont in 1994 leaving an investment career in Michigan. She was looking for a way to make new friends and remembered that she loved the arts as a teenager. She found a group teaching clay classes and started taking courses. Long story short, Cyndi fell in love with clay – the making of vessels and sculpture. Soon, she was very involved in the business side of the Vermont art center. Always taking art courses while helping manage the daily operations. During this time, meeting artists of all walks of life and taking courses all over the world, Cyndi fell in love with the idea of having fine art and craft in her life. Each piece purchased had a story: the artist and their passion for their craft; the making of the item; and the location of the artist’s studio/gallery. Over time, these handmade items were used on a daily or weekly basis: the lamp for reading; the handmade mug for the first cup of coffee; the casserole for a family meal; a platter for serving Thanksgiving turkey; the baker for apple crisp; redecorating a living room featuring a much loved original painting; an art photograph for a bedroom; and more.
