Whimsicalworkshop

Lynn Bresciani, a nationally known Early American Folk artist, makes her home and studio in Warsaw, Ohio.

While acquiring her bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from Youngstown State University, she discovered the charm of American Folk Art during her art history classes.

“I loved the innocence and child like representations of animals and nature that were portrayed in American Folk Art.” Then she carved a Santa and gave them as gifts to friends, and soon she began selling them in local Ohio shops.When the orders became overwhelming, her husband Bert Neill, learned how to make resin castings of her carvings and together they formed The Whimsical Workshop.Each reproduction goes through a 12 step process and Lynn hand paints each one giving them a vintage feel.

Her carved Fraktur birds, bird trees and grained boxes are sold in Colonial Williamsburg as well as the American Folk Art Museum in NYC, The Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, PA and the Mennonite Heritage Center in Harleysville, PA.For many years she has been an artisan in National Craft shows all over the United States as well as at prestigious buyer shows.
“I strive to create artwork that portrays joy and good cheer. I put time in each piece and hope that my work will be a treasure or keepsake for the owner.

KATIE'S LIGHTHOUSE 

KATIE'S LIGHTHOUSE

Katie's Light House has been making high quality colonial reproduction lighting since 1983, when Katie herself began hammering out tin lanterns in her garage. Over the years Katie's Light House grew to employ more than 20 handcrafters in the small town of Cridersville, Ohio

The passing of time brings changes, and in 2015 Katie's Light House was purchased by The Martin family and moved to Lancaster County Pennsylvania. The Martin's have continued the time honored tradition of making each light by hand. Lathes, chisels, hammers, and bending tools, some more than a century old, are used to cut, carve and shape each piece to primitive perfection. Our American artisans then paint and distress our products by hand as well, producing some of the most beautiful and convincingly antique finishes available.

CROCKER & SPRINGER SALT-GLAZED STONEWARE 

Jonathan and Jan Wright

Jonathan and Jan Wright founded Crocker & Springer, Ltd. early in 1987, shortly after marrying. With youthful enthusiasm, they set out to make a living together in the world of fine craft by combining their skill sets -- Jon's love of hand-throwing pots on a potter's wheel, as well as building and firing monstrous kilns; and Jan's passion for hand-decorating the pottery using the techniques of painting, slip-trailing, sgraffito-carving, and sculpting. During the ensuing years, the award-winning pair has become well-known nationally for their high quality, handmade, early American style salt-glazed stoneware and redware. Even after several decades, the magic of throwing salt into a white-hot kiln to form a clear, shiny glaze over the surface of the wares, then opening the kiln several days later to never-ending surprises, continues to be alluring beyond description!
