The Artists for 2013 Summit Fine Arts and Crafts Festival
Donald Bradford is one of the many participating artists for this year’s festival. He is an art teacher who thought in public schools in New Jersey for the past 10 years, before he devoted himself full time to clay and ceramic instruction. In such field, he already has 35 years of experience. The main body of his work has been lined with functional pottery. He has some unique pieces that are perfect for highly decorative glaze displays. All his work are both functional and breathtakingly beautiful.
Another artist that will join the festival is Terri Palmer. She draws her inspiration from farm animals and a number of perennial gardens located on the Pennsylvania farm where she resides. She has over 25 years of graphic design experience, aside from that, she enjoys vintage wood panel painting and the like. Terri makes art with acrylic paint, allowing her work to be suitable for both indoors and outdoors.
Quicksilver Jewelry owners and designers are Peter and Rebecca Puglia. They will be joining the Arts and Crafts Festival in Summit this year. The said business has been running since the year 1992. They personally design and make all the jewelry, and their primary media is semi-precious stone including jaspers, agates, feldspars, as well as crystals. Most of their natural stone samples on display are their private collection.
