Mimi has a keen eye for turning up treasures; she can find copper in clutter, silver in salvage, and bits of brass in bygone boxes. Not only do these vintage plates, platters and serving trays speak to a different era, they also boast beautiful, intricate patterns which Mimi transforms into stunning pieces of wearable art.
I work in sterling silver & copper. All my chains are made from hand cut links assembled one ring at a time. I use coloured copper as accents on my sterling pendants. My jewellery is 100% handmade.

Nature with its never ending textures, shapes, colours and art in general provide me with inspiration for all my pieces of jewellery.
I have always been drawn to work with my hands and in the end every new creation expresses itself from the inside out, elements finding and complementing each other in harmony and synergy.
All of my creations are one of a kind and handcrafted.
Hi! I’m Brenda from FaeGarten Clay. I make organic pottery for your home and garden without the use of a potter’s wheel. What was to be a hobby in my retirement has turned into a business, but I wasn’t ready to retire anyway. I sell my pieces year round in the central Vancouver Island area at markets and fairs.
Being able to express myself through art has always been a major part of who I am and with photography, it allows me to freely share what my heart feels. Pet photography is mainly what I focus on but nature is hard to ignore and I find myself drawn to capturing it.
Jessie Senecal is a jewellery artist from Qualicum Beach. She has created a line of unique, handcrafted silver lockets inspired by nature
I have celebrated form and shape with clay since 1998. You'll find functional ware, as well as decorative raku pieces in my collection. My pottery is hand built, each piece unique and usually quite whimsical fire with wood, gas kiln or a raku firing technique.
Liz and her husband Tom began using the ancient Japanese fish printing art form called “Gyotaku” about five years ago while on board their sailboat in Mexico, after returning from their circumnavigation. Tom is an avid spear fisherman and Liz loves the beauty of the fish, so it’s all about team work. They lived in Japan for a four year period, having sailed there via the South Seas, and while there, Liz studied “sumie” or Japanese ink painting with a private “sensei”. The techniques learned there apply to her fish creations, which are prolific and varied. The colour Liz adds, a departure from traditional gyotaku, reflects the natural coloration of the fish, making them come alive on the fabric.

Pipi lightheartedly creates a story using bold strokes from her hand-painted and printed fabric lines, transforming time-worn furniture and fashion into “original art for everyday living.”
I create hand-built ceramic dishware, vases and lamps out of porcelain and red clay. I also draw on clay tiles with scenes and landscapes which are framed for wall or shelf display.
