New Artists at the coop

Lon Pettit

       If you haven't come by the coop lately you are in for great surprises!  We have two exciting new artists in our mist, Sharon Isern and Lon Pettit, http://www.hawglass.com/
        Sharon's beaded jewelry is on display and is exquisite. The intricate bead work is so intense it will knock you out. There is a wedding necklace fit for this weeks Royal Wedding! If you happen to catch her on a day she is working the coop, you'll enjoy her friendly spirit too. I will post some pics of her work next week after I work at the coop on Sunday.
Gene Cowell
        The first time I met Lon, he was so personable.  I was blown away by his unique stained glass work.  He specializes in mostly bikes but does many other subjects.  I love stained glass and he is an added bonus along with our other stained glass artist, Gene Cowell with his fantastic wildlife.  We are lucky to have them both. Do all stained glass artists have such great personalities?
