Featured Artist: Side Door Pottery

Side Door Pottery is another of the great artists you will meet at my Fall Art Bash. If you have been to one of my studio sales in recent years you would have seen her work. 

Side Door Pottery is whimsical painted porcelain that is functional for everyday but elegant enough for special gifts. It is all hand painted in exquisite detail and one of a kind. 


Plates, bowls, cups, serving pieces and pitchers. Tiles and sculptures. Garden art. There is something for every taste. 

You can view many more of Linda's creations on her website and Facebook page

Featured Artist: Eastern Wind Glass

Another artisan you will meet at my Fall Art Bash is Dixie with Eastern Wind Glass.


One of Dixie's first creative endeavors was studying fashion design. From there she went into retail management. She took her love of color and texture from fabrics to glass. She has been working with stained glass for more than 20 years and fused glass almost as long. She opened her shop in 2008 to share her knowledge of glass and provide a place for other glass makers to find supplies and take classes.

Eastern Wind Glass is located in downtown Bremerton near the corner of Callow on Burwell.There you will find an assortment of supplies for glass art making, both stained glass and fused glass. Have a stained glass piece that needs repair? Contact the shop to discuss your needs. Or perhaps you have an idea for a custom piece in mind. They also have glass art from several glass artists for sale. And they offer a wide variety of classes.

Snakeskin Jasper

Last month I used up the last of these pretty snakeskin jasper teardrops. Some of these stones have such intricate patterns.  

One on right is sold.

Snakeskin jasper is a stone of protection and invisibility. 
Always makes me think of Harry Potters cloak!

It guards against negative attitudes and actions. 
Its energy is useful in moving energy and can be helpful during massage. 

It can also be helpful during meditation, bringing one peace of mind. Snakeskin jasper is also thought to bring productivity and abundance to our minds and bodies. 

One on left is sold.

Professionally she has worked as videographer and editor for the past 18 years. Her career has given her the opportunity to travel all over the world. Shannon says "I have always been in awe of its beauty and of the amazing animals we share it with.  I almost always have a camera near by to capture it."

In the past few years,she has started picking up her still camera more than her video camera. Shannon appreciates the stories she can tell in a single frame as well as the thousands she shoots in a video. She started Shannon Hull Photography to showcase these photos. Come see Shannon's work in person to experience the world through her eyes.
