Favorites at the Des Moines Arts Festival – both artists in Oregon!


 

The quality of the crafts at the Des Moines Arts Festival continues to be very high – shame about the wet weather last weekend. But we were among the visitors walking through the mist and drizzle on Sunday afternoon.  We were particularly taken by the work of two craft artists from Oregon – gorgeous blown glass by Joshua Rodine  (Phoenix, Oregon – which I’m told is between Medford and Ashland, both places we visited during our trip there a few years ago) and gorgeous woven rugs by Kimberly Morris  of Wallowa, a place I’ve wanted to visit since last November when I met someone in Seattle who lives there. Funny thing is the weaver didn’t know her friend the glass blower was in the show – just across the downtown sculpture garden – until I mentioned I’d just bought something from him!
