New Discovery Leona Hawks

Light Catchers by Leona Hawks, hanging in the front window of Chemers Gallery

Even when Karen is relaxing, she's working, always searching out new artists for Chemers Gallery. Glass artist Leona Hawks is one of Karen's most recent discoveries. She uses fused glass to create gorgeous, contemporary "light catchers." These pieces are stunning when grouped together in a window that gets lots of natural light. Each pane of fused glass holds bubbles like air rising in the water, and the colorful wire-wrapped glass tails gently twist and turn in the breeze.

Leona's work is hot hot hot! Her whimsical light catchers, jewelry for your windows, have SOLD OUT after only 3 days! We expect to be receiving more next week, so let us know if you'd like to be contacted when they're in!

Let's talk about soap for a moment, specifically the long-lasting glycerine Soap Rocks. No doubt you will have noticed our geological display on our counter, and perhaps even been fooled into thinking they're real gemstones. After over 5 years of carrying them, we now have beautiful soap dishes to display them in, also from Leona! All dishes are textural and come in bright, jewel-like colors. What a perfect way to display your Soap Rocks - when you're not using them, that is!
