I am always so impressed with the sheer number of vendors who present at the ACC Show each year. To be in the presence of so many talented people makes me really appreciate what they all do.
As we strolled through the show this afternoon, I was so taken with all that I was seeing, that I was distracted from taking lots of pictures. But here’s a sample of some things that we saw.
While this teapot looks like a shaggy dog, when you get close up, you can see what it actually is. Dollar bills! I was fascinated with this necklace. In addition to my friend Liz at The Felted Garden, there were a number of other felters there. This gal had added silk to her wool to make this gorgeous scarf. Local crafter, Caitlin Phillips and her Rebound Designs, makes handbags out of old books. They’re so clever!
I remember this clay-master from last year and just love the colours and shapes of his works.
One of the most fun things about attending the ACC show is seeing everyone wear the pieces that they have purchased in years past. This gal had on the most striking cape. I was quite taken with this artisan who casts everything from items found in nature.
This wall was pretty incredible! These reminded me of Madonna’s cone bra.I was at a friend’s house for lunch the other day and she had the most amazing collection of old buttons. I thought these pieces were very clever.
