Kentucky clay artist, Laura Lynch sent a fresh new selection of her pottery and sculptures to indigenous. Find plates, cups, tea bowls, planters, and a variety of vases in her modern, stylized nature-loving designs - plus her wonderful creature sculptures!

"My work consists mainly of wheel-thrown functional pots decorated with under-glazes, oxides and sprayed glazes and finished with a high fire in an electric kiln. I like the visual interaction between a solid glazed surface and a colored decoration on a bare clay background. I want my work to illustrate my love of nature and modern design and depart from traditional pottery aesthetics."

Beautiful new one-of-a-kind vessels from local potter Clare Rumpke have arrived. Clare creates vases, candle holders, decorative birdhouses and lidded vessels using a variety of alternative firing techniques achieving remarkable surface textures, colors and finishes.

Fall favorites at indigenous include copper and sterling works from Deb Chenault of Berea, Kentucky. Deb added a sleek yet organic, and a bit industrial new collection of hand worked mixed-metals jewelry. Many of her pieces are titled and include a story card so we can share her inspiration with the buyer or wearer; designs include - The Seven Sisters, Wabi-Sabi, Seed, The Portal, Waning Moon, Changes and more.

Story of The Seven Sisters (third photo):
The subject of legend in nearly every culture, the "Seven Sisters" name is from Greek mythology, where seven beautiful sisters were ardently pursued by Orion until Zeus took pity on them, turning them into a flock of doves that flew to freedom and protection in the night sky. Though telescopic observation has revealed that this open cluster we now call the Pleiades is comprised of some four hundred stars wreathed in a complex nebulæ of dust and gas, in antiquity, only seven stars were visible to the naked eye. My hope is that this talisman celebrates with its wearer the wonder of the night sky, bringing her the protective power of Zeus, and the freedom of the dove.
