We meet the second Monday of each month at the Edgewood Bible Church, 1720 Meridian Ave. E., Edgewood, WA. Doors open at 6:30 PM and the meeting is called to order at 7:00 PM. Be sure and “like” us on Facebook.
For April, we are pleased to present Martha Collins. Martha is a gifted artisan living in Sequim, WA. She will be presenting her technique for creating fine jewelry and gift crafted from wood.
The first time I saw the Northwest I knew it would become my home. Lost Mountain is where I have lived and done my life’s work for a quarter of a century.
In addition to my own mountaintop studio, I am on the faculty of the Port Townsend School of Woodworking.
My passion is to create personal, unique, three-dimensional works of art with exotic hardwoods and brightly colored veneers that are hand dyed in my studio. Each piece is carefully constructed using the natural colors, grains and textures of the sustainable yield exotic and domestic hardwoods. This beauty is then captured and framed with the dyed veneer. It is this combination, of the natural and the dyed, that sets my work apart and makes each piece unique.
Currently I am designing and creating bracelets, mantra bowls, table sets and bottle stoppers.
