Fiber Artistry: From Tree to Table
Marilyn Smith’s talents lie in fiber arts design. After over 40 years of sewing experience, six years ago, she added quilting to her repertoire. Currently, she uniquely designs and makes table runners, placemats, wall hangings, appliqued pillows, and tote bags. Her table runners and placemats, which often include embroidered designs, are finished with a hand-hemmed, French-fold binding. www.artfulquiltsmith.com
Rick Smith has been a lover and worker of wood for most of his life. He is dedicated to revealing the beauty that Nature has hidden in the wood of her trees. A particular emphasis is art fashioned from the wood of Maryland’s beloved State Tree, the Wye Oak, and from local trees. In the tradition of the Colonial woodsmith, these works of woodturning art are never filled or stained in order to preserve the natural color, character, and history of the wood. These creations from the Maryland Wye Oak (our State Tree) and other woods include bowls, vases, candleholders, rolling pins, wine bottle stoppers, and jewelry; all designed and finished by the artist. www.firewoodtreasures.com
