Cherie Westmoreland, Pottery & Sculpture

My work is handbuilt: sculptures, wall pieces, bowls, mosaics, face pots, vases, and ceramic jewelry. Some pieces focus on the human face, birds, vines, ferns, and explorations of the form of the vessel (nesting vessels, and holey pieces that play with light and shadows). In other work I create photographic image transfers that incorporate photographs […]

Jacquelyn Lowry “Crow Spirit Woman” sculpture

AMAZING new sculpture by Pittsboro’s Jacquelyn Lowry, surely a world class artist, humble and little-known as she is. These and more are at the Joyful Jewel now. The young woman is entitled “Celestial Bliss,” you can guess which is “Crow Spirit Woman” & the detail, and the big bowl is a bird bath or bird feeder. […]

Douglas Maccardini “Lamp Bot” sculpture

Douglas Maccardini just brought in this fantastical lamp that he made from such a fun variety of materials.  It’s a bit different than his usual oil cans and roller skate bots and especially delightful with the bicycled jester.  This is one of Douglas’s larger sculptures. It features an old fashioned lamp light, a weather vane […]

Kimberly Godon, Sculpture

   Spike art is made from railroad spikes, bolts, clamps and plates from the ‘old gulf, NC spur’ used in WWII for transporting iron and ore from local mines. The material is collected along the tracks on long walks. Years of force and pressure shape these pieces. I just put a form to them. Each […]

Barbara Thompson, Glass Sculpture

Artist Barbara Thompson: “I’m a recycler by nature and always loved glass. Making these glass sculptures is satisfying on many levels. The sculptures can be garden art, though weather will eventually cause them to lose their luster. They can also be decorative pieces in the home, and may double as candleholders.  I also like to […]
