FEATURED ARTISTS

Kentucky Crafted artist Deb Chenault will be bringing her exquisite jewelry to this year's Festival. Here's her bio:

Deb Chenault, owner/artist of Twelfth House Designs, was privileged to study the art of jewelry design with the master silver artisans of Thailand.  She continued her education in the metals program at Eastern Kentucky University.  She is a juried, exhibiting member of the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen  and the Sheltowee Artisans and has exhibited her work at many galleries and museums across the region.

As a former free-lance writer and illustrator, Deb enjoys creating talismanic pieces that convey meaning, and transferring her original illustrations into metal form.  She works with mixed metals—primarily copper and sterling silver—using repurposed and recycled materials whenever possible.  She often incorporates gemstones and handcrafted porcelain objects into her metal designs.

Deb currently makes her home and studio in the wooded hills of beautiful Berea, Ky.

Kotah Moon has a long running history with the Festival and has been featured here before but we are always impressed with Kotah's ability to surprise and captivate us.

Kotah Moon Sculpture I create every piece of art from 100% recycled and found metals.I seek out all of my own metals,create designs to complement those metals,and then cut each piece by hand along with up to 3 types of welding as needed. Each piece is burnished with wire brushes and or grinding disc then heated and dyed with non-toxic metal dyes. The end process is to add 3 to 5 coats of clear coat to properly protect each piece of art. There is NO computerized or automated equipment used,ever!
