Artist: Rose Robin Designs

I am a modern stained glass and pressed flower artist from Haverhill. My work ranges from small ornamental hangings of pressed flowers sourced from the local area to larger stained-glass pieces and panels created using the traditional Tiffany copper foil technique. 

Artist: Toni Anthony

My process is about art from within. To be in the present moment.  An active meditation. All pieces are untitled as I want the viewer to attach their own narrative or feelings to the piece.

Lauren McBeath Ceramics

A ceramic artist who loves working with stoneware clay as it reflects my passion for animals and the natural world. It provides a creative outlet which, as a busy mother, gives me the opportunity to enjoy the practices of mindfulness, non-attachment and patience; but most importantly…it’s really good fun!I enjoy the process of learning every time I create a new piece.
