I make leather goggles, with real brass eye pieces and hand-cut lenses; vintage military-inspired hats, masks that are reminiscent of early aviation, and other custom steampunk leather items. http://www.etsy.com/shop/COGstumeGEARments
My art is primarily using gourds. I incorporate several passions into my work. I use beadwork, textiles, iron work, clay and collage; to name a few. Of course I love nature, what artist doesn't, I actually use tree parts. Although, some of my work is functional and some non-functional. It's all pleasing to the eye and unique. What I consider non-functional are enjoyable interactive pieces with doors and windows. I've began working with gourds in 1999, and have experienced many evolutions with them from food-safe to wall art masks. I've been told many times that I have taken gourds to a different level.

Chair making is my passion. I truly believe in using old world methods that are now considered "green" - such as using wood that has been air dried as opposed to natural gas kiln dried whenever and wherever possible. I love to work with completely non-toxic substances - primarily milk paints and natural oils - to create the beautiful, durable finishes available on all my furniture. Most of the wood I use is locally sourced - and Texas grown, when possible. Please read more at http://www.kapeldesigns.blogspot.com on the methods I use and how hand tools are a critical part of my process.
My creations are handmade and one-of-a-kind, with unique vintage elements carefully handpicked from antique markets in France. In designing my creations I combine vintage elements with modern material creating eclectic, elegant and playful pieces, recalling days gone by. http://www.perleamies.com
Abstract paintings in acrylics and oils.
Designing Re-Purposed Jewelry utilizing vintage components is one of my favorite creative endeavors. I enjoy assembling elements into something re-envisioned and one-of-a-kind. Elements may include brooches/pins, sash pins, dress/fur clips, watch fobs, cufflinks, bracelets, earrings, and shoe clips. Other elements may include vintage keys, car emblems, clock ornamentation, belt buckles, buttons, rosary beads, chandelier crystals, and anything else that may lend itself well to design.

I am a multimedia artist focusing on the formal aspects of Art--line variation, texture, rhythm, color, space, etc. My original drawings, watercolor paintings, and other elements are encased within layers of mixed-mediums. The nature of the mediums dictate the compositions and ensure that no two are alike. They are created on custom made wood panels which eliminates the need for framing. www.amandaarmistead.com 281-796-7445

My work consists of minimalistic sculpture with a mathematical foundation. Specific parts of a form can be given more emphasis with the addition of vibrant colors of spray paint. I continually cross over from abstract to realistic as I seek out new shapes inspired by unusual lifeforms. 281.455.8261
With a view of the trees at my table I sit, kneading and working the clay. Until forms and shapes appear. After they are baked and cooled, they are glazed, hand painted or left naked. Then they are crafted into necklaces, earring or bracelets.

My paintings are based from direct observation. I take my French easel out into the city I call home, Houston TX. The subject matter, although always changing, is often the confluence of what I love about Houston; it's buildings, bayous, highways, tree lined streets and lush parks and gardens. I hope you can see the beauty of Houston in my Urban Landscapes. 713-305-6626 http://deatlyart.com
