Two On Tuesdays...Raining Cats & Dogs
First up is Chickenscratch, otherwise known as Lisa and Scott Cylinder. Their mixed metal and media pieces often have a whimsical playful theme, sometimes a more meaningful message, but always they are cleverly expressive.
"We are inspired by the place where we live and work, one of natural beauty. Our work conveys allegories about this environment through the creatures who are its players. These are stories about their habits and habitats, as well as our own, coexisting both in the natural and man-made world."
Mark Poulin's jewels feature festive and colorful animals, aliens, flowers and families, framed by sterling and protected with vitreous enamels.
"Mark Poulin loves to draw and create cartoon characters. He combines his passion for metal work and eye for color into playful jewelry which has won him a loyal following across the country."
