    Wearable Art

    Travel in style with a soft, feminine jacket, poncho or scarf designed by Pam Lynch. All of her pieces are made from a rayon/poly blend of knitwear. They are easy to pack and can be hand washed and air-dried. Pam’s clothing is also versatile. For example, her poncho can be worn as-is or as a scarf, and her jacket can also be worn as vest, a loop around the neck, a twist on the head and a cover-up.


    Glass Home Accessories and Jewelry

    Gila Sagy’s passion for art, color and culture blend as seamlessly as the fused glass pieces she creates. “The many colors and textures of glass make fusing so fascinating for me,” she says. “Nothing can replace the excitement of creating beautiful color combinations with glass.” Her creations, which range from photo holders, jewelry, mezuzahs, wine bottle platters and more are all original, unique and one of a kind. Everything is made of glass pieces in multiple colors and textures. The process of firing in the kiln fuses all of the individual pieces together, culminating in Gila’s elegant art pieces.


    Mixed Media Art

    Jack Durnford excels in creating unique textures and stunning emotion in his larger wall artpieces. His use of recovered wood and recycled materials gives his work mass appeal, especially when it comes to his smaller driftwood pieces. “My sustainable art is created by using up to 80% recycled materials,” says Jack. “I have been using recycled material for the past 15 years and while I use different materials, I’m bound by a burning desire to test my own creative limits – changing, refining and shifting.”



    Sky and Leah Emerson collaborated to form Summit Side Photo & Video in 2010 and were married in 2015. They are driven by a passion to travel and capture the awe-inspiring beauty of their surroundings. Sky’s passion for the outdoors and sense of adventure is evident when he is behind the lens, always looking to capture and preserve nature’s magnificence, special life moments and the sense of wonder that this amazing planet provides. Leah has been passionate about photography for most of her life, inspired to capture beautiful moments in the world around her. Her mission is to create impressive and unique images that can be treasured for years to come.
