I got a chance to visit four Vermont artisans this past weekend. I love visiting their studios and seeing how they fill their private spaces. The picture above was taken in Lochlin Smith’s studio. Lochlin has been a craftsman for over 30 years, hand fabricating jewelry. I brought many of new pieces home with me. My carry on bag was HEAVY! Do you see the mountain bike? Lochlin is an avid biker.
After drooling over all of the lovely jewelry and other metal work at Lochlin’s, I headed to Barre’s Studio Place Arts (SPA). I was thrilled to see that it is still thriving. A new show was going up. Sue Higby, a former Michigan resident, is the Executive Director. Mark Waskow is her right hand man. SPA is an arts organization that hosts exhibits, classes of many mediums, and individual artists studios on the upper floors.
As you can see, I had a great visit. Stop in to check out the new work from these Vermont artisans and all of our other artwork.
