Here are a few of the fine crafters you will be able to meet at the show this weekend:

Eric Hertz: Pottery

First, we would like to introduce to you Eric Hertz. Eric’s pottery is handmade, functional, stoneware pottery that is meant for everyday use. Each piece is uniquely created through a variety of techniques including wheel throwing and hand building. All pieces are microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe. You can view more of his collection HERE.

Olga Londono & Carlos Bernal: Wood

Next, we have Olga Londono & Carlos Bernal. Pictured above is a print of thier original illustration that has been digitally enhanced. It is printed on premium presentation paper with archival pigment inks to keep your art piece looking great for years and years. Then, it’s applied on 1/2 inch MDF wood and cut by hand, as a last step we applied several coats of clear glossy finish. You can see more of their funky & vibrant pieces HERE.

Lori Kay Olling: Jewelry

The final artist we are going to introduce to you is Lori Kay Olling. Lori’s style is a mix of clean simple lines and contemporary design. She is a metal-smith using all precious metals and a learning lapidary using semi-precious stones. You can learn more about this artist HERE.

You can meet all the incredibly talented fine crafters mentioned above along with 100 other fine crafters from around the state of Florida and the United States.
