We specialize in creative gifts for creative people.
Howdy! My name is Kristen and I like to make things. I am currently making peaceful acrylic paintings, pointed mixed media pieces, and quirky technicolor watercolor illustrations. These three styles come tumbling out depending on my mood which usually can be summed up by: let’s chill out and debate in acrylics, resist! we gotta do something about politics in mixed media, and let’s have fun and be weird together in watercolors. Ever feel like this? Then you’re in good company - Enjoy!
My granddaughter and I make custom coasters and magnets using a rubber stamp or decoupage technique that is durable for years.
I make room divider screens, mirror and picture frames, boxes, etc. decorated with hardback book covers, also original art. I use discarded book covers to create one-of-a-kind functional and decorative pieces. I also offer studio time for use of a 12"x12" steel rule die cutter. Instead of unwanted hardback books ending up in landfills, I thought "why not upcycle them into art?" I make 2-D and functional book cover art using knives, paper cutters, and steel rule dies.
I started my journey to become a jeweler nearly five years ago. My family had been in the business for 75 years. I control each step of the process from creating the designs to melting metals and cutting stones.
I use a torch to melt colored glass rods to make beads. Sterling silver, brass & copper are the metals I use to make my jewelry components. From ear wires to links, every part of my product is handmade by me. My pieces are one of a kind, literally! Teaching beginner & intermediate lampworking & metals classes are a large & fun part of my business.
We make small batch, generously fragranced, soy wax melts and candles out of our home in Knoxville,Tn.
Minimalist design doesn’t have to be bland or forgettable! I aim to make jewelry and leather goods that are sleek yet full of personality. My work incorporates a variety of inspirations, from the purposeful design of a pocketknife, to nostalgia for 90s Claire’s earring sets, or the clean geometry of mid century furniture. Including colorful earrings sets, hand-patterned leather clutches, sleek keychain wristlets, and more, Cold Gold strives to provide the simple, memorable staples in your wardrobe.
I make memory items (stiluffed animals, pillows, T-shirt blankets) from articles belonging to loved ones. I also upcycle items into creative useful household items - firepits, lighting, art, etc.
I am a self-taught leather craftswoman hand-making each piece. From choosing the leather, creating a pattern then hand-punching and sewing, each item is an expression of my aesthetic. I am inspired by Japanese and Scandinavian minimalist designs.
I'm a Knoxville native designing and making products inspired by my Southern roots. I gave up architecture to pursue my passion of graphic design. My product line includes greeting cards, postcards, prints, mugs, notepads, magnets, throw pillows, gift wrap, and screen printed kitchen towels, onesies, and tshirts. My designs tend to be bright and colorful, and I'm always striving to create the perfect gift.
I am a full-time, self-employed craft artist who has been making corn shuck dolls since 1975. I am devoted to the creative process of craft, and especially the alchemy of transforming raw, natural materials into new forms. I dye the natural dried corn shucks by hand, then roll and tie them into doll figures. I embellish the dolls with a variety of natural materials, and repurposed objects. My dolls represent imaginative notions of folklore, legend, myth, healing modalities, shamanism and other earthly and celestial entities, as well as traditional Appalachian themes. I am also devoted to keeping corn shuck doll craft alive, and teach workshops and classes at schools, craft centers and at my studio. I am the author of "Making Colorful Corn Shuck Dolls,” a full-color, step-by-step instructional book on making corn shuck dolls, published in 2011. You can find my work at various craft galleries and shops in the southern Appalachian region.
In addition to my corn shuck artistry, I also produce my own line of natural skin care products under the name Annie Egypt Herbals. I began by experimenting with making my own soaps over 20 years ago, after becoming conscious of harmful synthetic ingredients in commercially produced skin care. In addition to my herbal soaps, I formulate face and body creams, anointing and massage oils, and other products good for the body and soul. All of my products are made in small batches using all-natural vegetable oils and pure essential oils. My products “Won’t make you beautiful; they will keep you beautiful!”™
Gallery Hours: 10-6 Thursday - Saturday.
Other days by appointment or when the "Open" sign is on! Free parking!
Awesome Hand Poured Soy Scented Candles, made in Knoxville. Natural, locally sourced candles expertly scented & poured.
We make original, custom artwork for homes or businesses. Anything from cards to posters, mugs to mouse pads. I've been doing graphic design for nearly 15 years and this is a creative outlet to step away from the "corporate" and into the artistic.
I create wooden bowls, vessels, platters, and sculptures on a lathe. I only use locally sourced wood from East Tennessee. I live in an historic neighborhood in Knoxville and work out of my shop behind my house.
I love printmaking! I consider my work to be between cute and beautiful. I have tea towels that have tacos all over them to a lovely lemon print. All my stamps are drawn and carved out by me. Each tea towel will be different because they are handprinted.
