Flutes by MurLock
Ann Murray & Ross Lockridge
Sculpted Clay vessel flutes (ocarinas, whistles, sweet potatoes…) shaped in animal or human forms have been made for thousands of years in cultures all over the world. The sculptural aspects of our smaller flutes can be reminiscent of the Japanese netsuke. Our flutes range from 5 notes to an octave. We met at the San Francisco Art Institute, moved to the village of Cerrillos, where we have collaborated on many art projects. Acknowledgments: Delia Robinson of Montpelier, Vermont and the late Mildred MacKenzie of Bloomington, Indiana–our teacher-inspirers of the art of the clay flute.

feltfree ~ Wool Felt Wearables & Nuances
In 2008, fascinated that felt is believed to be the earliest form of textile making, Jo journeyed to Turkey to study traditional wet felt making.
Her work has evolved to a free form, as she crafts unstructured mystery to wear and adorn.
As she dyes and felts the wool into hats, scarves, bags, booties & small carpets, she surrenders to the wool as “it speaks its mind into organic originals with random tendrils of whimsy & wild.”
Art has been a part of my life as far back as I can remember, having inherited a love of art and appreciation of nature, from both sides of my family.
I've worked as an artist, textile designer, and illustrator- using watercolor, pastel, and pen and ink.
Recently I've been focusing on woodcut prints, inspired by nature, and the beautiful places that I've lived.
My art work can be seen in galleries in Hawaii, and in New Mexico.
Heike Strobel always wanted to become an artist but her parents wanted her to learn a "real" profession, so she became a nurse. While she was working for many years in the emergency room she went to art school on the weekends and studied art in Munich.
Heike's second career was working as a flight attendant for Lufthansa/German Airlines. During 14 years she was able to take work shops all around the globe, like Japan, China and Argentina.
Finally after immigrating to the United States in 1998 she plugged up enough courage and became what she always wanted to be: a fulltime artist.
Heike now lives and works here in Santa Fe.
Miya is a full-time potter from Dixon, NM, specializing in wheel-thrown

Fine Art Photographys
Fine Art Photography I am an award-winning photographer whose career began in 1990. I was a photojournalist for 17 years working in New England and have been published worldwide. In 2003 I was awarded the New England Press Association’s Photographer of the Year Award. Since 2003 I have been selling my artwork at fine art festivals first in New England and now currently throughout the greater Southwest.
In 2006, when I moved to the Southwest, I left my career as a photojournalist and have since been a full-time artist. My love of nature and the environment is evident in my photography – grand vistas photographed throughout the Southwest and New England. In addition the last year has seen me focused on old cars and trucks and vintage Americana. I am currently based in Santa Fe, NM and Scottsdale, AZ and also teach photo workshops.
Designs of Erika
Designs of Erika Erika Eckerstrand is a Swedish-born Santa Fe artist who marries form and function in all that she creates.
This collection of totes, accessories, and functional housewares is her lastest work. Eckerstrand has transformed hardy materials originally made to withstand the elements into sleek, contemporary pieces that are as practical as they are stylish. A wine rack, viewed as purely functional by many, morphs into sculpture with Erika’s vision and nod to Scandinavian design.
