GriffCo Jewelry Creations
Chris Griffith began creating jewelry out of a desire to take the joy of creating something beautiful and sharing it with others. The pieces she creates are one hundred percent custom--no templates, no duplications. Every piece is truly one of a kind. Chris believes that jewelry is wearable art, the accent to an outfit that makes a woman feel wonderful as soon as she puts it on. Her inspiration is to have each piece create a sense of well being and a feeling of beauty every time it is worn.
Doug DeBastiani’s Pit Fired (aka Sagger Fired) Pottery
Doug DeBastiani first learned pottery techniques in rural northern West Virginia, and honed his talents in North Carolina under the tutelage of local potters. His technique uses flames to color and pattern the pottery. There is no glazing or any painting. What you see is a unique work of nature; that of decoration achieved by burning pottery in a pit. The colors and patterns are unique to the vessel, giving its owner a custom decorated piece of art. You can see Doug’s passion in his work, and hear it in his words: “If you have the time, pick up a piece of handmade pottery. Admire the form with your eye and the craftsmanship with your hands. But most of all, feel the soul put into the piece by its maker, for that is why he made it.”
Kim Proctor’s Photography
Kim Proctor, an 18-year resident of Knightdale, is the owner of Studio 1021. She took up photography 2 years ago after her husband surprised her at Christmas with a camera. Her talent emerged very quickly, as she combined her newest hobby with one of her oldest--gardening--to produce stunning shots of flowers and local wildlife right out of her backyard. Today Kim continues to specialize in outdoor photography, though she has moved beyond her backyard and ranges across the state and region to capture natural beauty the way only she can.
