2017 Exhibits and Events
July 21 - Sept 2
Artisan Creations and Fashions
Featuring Artists’ Own Fiber Artists: Vicky Bollock, Cyndy Clauss, Cherry Delaney, Ellen Germann, Anita Krug, Pat Mleynek and LaDonna Vohar.
Fiber has different meanings depending on the artist. It could be linen and wool for the Weaver, silk for a Scarf Dyer or lace for the Seamstress. These seven fiber artists have drawn from saved and treasured fibers, fibers that may be rare and expensive, limited in production, or old and no longer found. Yet, these special fibers pose a challenge: find just the right project to showcase them!
Artisan Creations and Fashions features design pieces that fully utilize the origin of the fiber. Join us at Artists’ Own to see how a simple treasured piece of fiber is transformed into a piece of art.

Dick Lehman is a renowned ceramic artist from Goshen, Indiana. Dick found his love for ceramics as an elective course in college. After graduation and a “regular” job, Dick switched from a hobby potter in 1981 to full-time ceramists. Dick’s insights and techniques have appeared in both national and international periodicals and books; his work is exhibited and collected worldwide. He may be best known for his enhancements of three firing techniques: long-wood-firing, side-fire, and saggar-fire.
Amy Sanders, owner of there there pottery, is from Charlotte, North Carolina. Amy creates delightful earthenware handbuilt vessels demonstrating a luscious balance of texture, rhythm, and pattern within their visually soft utilitarian forms. She currently works as a studio artist, teaches adult handbuilding classes, and conducts workshops nationwide.
