Susan Schweitzer Ceramics
My work is built around interweaving form, fluidity and space. My textures are developed in layers to carry the visual experience inward. Cultural influences from travels abroad often play a role in my artwork — from hearing the roar of the white lions in South Africa to exploring the pyramids of Teotihuacan. Working with clay, I ponder humanity and preservation at the core essence of being. I work with white and stoneware clay bodies and apply stains to accentuate my mark making. Glaze and colorants are added selectively, leaving exposed raw clay to interact with the firing process. Soda firing leaves an imprint, revealing how the fire dances around my work. I know a piece is complete when all the elements feel in concert with one another. In a world of constant motion and stimulation overload, the intention of my work is to create better clarity in the moment. My desire is that through the experience of my work, people see something in a different way — a moment of curiosity that opens to possibility, a discovery that awakens wonderment, or exploration without trepidation.
My name is Mary Jane and I work at a Children's Hospital and create Restful Wraps weighted blankets. Creating is a passion of mine! When 2 co-workers asked me if I could make weighted blankets for their sons, I thought I'd give it a try. What a cool thing, creating and helping kids! Being a former teacher with a background in special education, I thought this was a good fit for my skills, passion, and education. My faith is also important to me so I started praying for every person who I was making blankets for. When working with a client, I like to learn a bit about them...their interests, the colors they like, how tall they are, how much they weigh, and why they are looking for a weighted blanket. This has been a wonderful process. There is an ever-changing collection of fabrics that I have found very appealing and I like to offer a solid coordinating color for the back of each blanket.

Performing live from 10:00-12:30
Just Us is an acoustic duo made up of Alek Glauvitz (guitar and vocals) and Arja Lea Niskanen (vocals) from St. Paul, MN. They perform an eclectic acoustic mix of folk, original, contemporary and classic rock. Their original music blends a Minnesota/North Shore sensibility with an urban/bluegrass folk feel for a very unique sound. They have performed sets over the past three years from the Twin Cities to Southern Minnesota and to the most northwestern border of the state: from central Wisconsin to Wisconsin's northern lake shores.
Performing live from 12:30-3:00
It started out in a small basement room with out-of-tune guitars and loud amplifiers when they were just eight years old trying to be the Beatles. As teenage years rolled in, punk rock influenced the two, to be who they were despite the negativity of living in small town. They wanted to be different and different they were. Over the years as the music progressed between the two, they played together in several bands, one that became popular in the twin cities. Never losing sight of their roots, the two brothers knew it was time to span off and do something that was all their own. A band that combines everything that they grew up to love about music with just the two of them to create the essence of the connection musically and spiritually that exists between twin brothers. Sometimes it's loud, sometimes it's soft. It's natural and It's in the moment. It's The Freeturnals.

Unique Gifts for Any Occasion
As a child growing up in Russia, wood burning and other crafts were always a hobby of mine. Wire trees with gem stones were popular in Europe and they particularly intrigue me. When Mike and I met, we realized we both had a fascination for the beauty of the world. We incorporate this fascination in our art and it has now become much more than a hobby!

Tara Frady Pottery
I enjoy creating things that make people smile, that are unexpected. My inspiration comes from the world around me, whether it be the tall buildings and bustle of downtown Minneapolis, or the tiny body of an obscure bug found while camping in the Minnesota woods. My work always has a childlike playfulness, yet encompasses a useful functionality. It is driven by the freedom to play. Integrating the design of the organic clay with the sparkle of the Swarovski crystals make my creating unique, whether it be jewelry or a functional piece of art. None of my pieces are the same, as I enjoy the dance of the clay from the first time my fingers feel the squish to the colorful yet natural piece it becomes. It is always an organic process. Most of my work is fired n an atmospheric kiln, and is wither gas or soda fired. My goal is to bring joy.
My name is Lovey, a few years ago my father said to me; "Doll, you need to retire and find your Bliss." While I'm not retired and still work full-time, I am an empty nester and have found great BLISS in creating beautiful things to nurture body, mind, and soul. My spa products are hand crafted with love in small batches. My sun catchers are each unique, using up-cycled beads and baubles. I also create stepping and gazing stones along with other garden art for year round enjoyment.

Eric J Moen Gems
My fascination with Nature and science began at an early age. I would spend as much time as possible observing the rhythm of life. When I wasn't outside learning about Nature on my own, I would read books on chemistry and electronics. I excelled in school. My career path took me into electronics where I had worked for major technology companies. Becoming bored with working a routine day job, I turned to my artistic side and pursued gemstone cutting and metal-smithing. Within these disciplines, I was able to work with science, Nature, and art to create beautiful jewelry. I've been involved extensively with the paranormal as well - having been featured on National as well as regional television productions including being featured on the Biography Channel and A&E. I've been told I'm a gifted psychic. Using my spirituality and mind to create beautiful things is ultimately what brings me the most joy in life.
