Coyote Creek Studio Arts

Sometimes I feel like I have my own, personal photographer...and I guess I really do. My husband Dan took this photo of me yesterday in front of Coyote Creek Studio Arts, after we completed the delivery of my work.

It was the first time I got to see the gallery, visit Fairplay, and meet Pat Pocius...one of the co-owners. Pat is great; she owns South Park Pottery too. I'm happy to be affiliated with this new gallery.

We hung of two of my stained glass windows and you can barely seem them in this picture, but Tower Falls is hanging to my right (your left) and Euclids Garden is to my left (your right). Nice to see my work in a couple of their front windows.

Coyote Creek is set to open next weekend, with its Sneak Preview. I just love the setting, the gallery, the atmosphere....it is so Colorado, so quaint little mountain town. No, not a tourist trap, just a delightful place in this world with charming, friendly people. And the scenery is breathtaking. Mountains stole my heart eons ago when I first saw them in person. I would LOVE to live in an area like this and I'm happy in the knowledge that I live so close to these places that I can visit frequently.

After next weekend's sneak preview, I'm sure I'll have more photos to share of the interior and exterior of the gallery....along with some scenic views too. The weather was a little too overcast yesterday for good mountain photo opts.

I have new work in the kiln and I'm getting ready to start on another piece this afternoon. The creative juices are flowing!!!

How cool is that! I can see your stained glass pieces have the perfect spot in the studio so the light from the windows can stream through and illuminate those beautiful images.

Dan is a phenomenal photog! Of course he is able to capture your beauty but his website is awesome.

Thanks Sue! It's definitely been a lot of hard work this past month getting things ready for the delivery. Anxious to see how next weekend goes.

I always love the traditional artist-standing-next-to-their-work-photo...and this one is really a nice one.
I agree the place looks very unpretentious..and I clicked the photo to enlarge it and you look unpretentious too! lol...Very pretty & together!

Kathleen Krucoff said...

Hey thanks Celeste! Very sweet of you to say. :)

I have a fascination with glass...and I can't wait to see all the beautiful things you create.

Congratulations... After looking at the beautiful pieces shown in this website, I'm sure you'll have LOTS to tell us about!!
I met my husband in a glass factory.. (LOL) He's Venetian and was working in Murano... I was a tourist...
I'm imagining the jewelry you make doesn't require the huge ovens that larger pieces require... or do you do that too??

Kathleen Krucoff said...

Hi Marian!

Thanks for stopping by and your comments. How interesting that you met your husband in a glass factory!

I make most of my pieces in my large kiln, which is only 13" deep and 15" wide...I have my eye on a larger kiln to make really big pieces someday.
