Pat Polly - Of course our absolute favorite is Our Beautiful Mother who has never
failed to encourage us while we continue on in our exciting business adventure. She
and our father have always been very craft savvy, they started their own business
in making figurines, birdbaths, etc. of concrete which taught us when you put your
heart into ideas, it works! We lost Dad in ‘93 and miss him even now.
Mom continued to master new ideas such as beautiful fused glass and gorgeous bead
work. The cross is some of Mom's work embedded in soap.
We lost Mom on Easter 2011. I miss her encouragement, our talks, her beautiful smiles,
her love she showed daily to family and friends. I miss you Mom.
Ron Luke - My Husband! He is such a perfectionist....his work in wood is a talent
that only a man of patience could have. Every piece he carves, cuts, sands or paints
takes hours...okay, maybe not hours...yet an extremely long time. He enjoys spending
what spare time he has out in the garage (the man cave) just putting his ideas to
work. You can see his work right here at The Wood Zone page on our web site.
Sherrie Venghaus - Then of course comes my Baby Sister, Her story is amazing and
I hope you'll take the time to check out her web-site. She has an unbelievable talent
for Sculptural Flamework Jewelry. Her pieces are becoming world renowned and I believe
she wakes up in the morning with a new challenge to her imagination to create something
new and different. As busy as she is, she still takes the time to check in on me
to make sure I keep my imagination alive. Her husband.....you just have to meet him,
he makes sure everyone keeps moving, you have no choice but to love him! Sherrie's
amazing works of art can be found at: Moltenglassdesigns.com
Judy Shillingburg - Judy’s artwork is simply fantastic! Stop by the Special Touch
Gallery and you’ll see what we mean. Her gallery also hosts 25 of the area’s most
talented artists. Being able to work each day with a view of paradise from the gallery
window is the envy of any business owner!
