Mixed media Jewelry,
Ashland Art Center,
357 E. Main Street, Ashland
I create one-of-a kind jewelry and weavings that combine the ethnic
traditions of Asian and Western cultures. My signature tapestry
necklaces are woven with fibers and yarns, then embellished with
metals, semi-precious stones and beads. Currently, I’m exploring
Japanese Saori-style freeform weaving, which emphasizes imperfection
and wabi-sabi design over formal weave structures.
555 Freeman Rd. #109
Central Point, Oregon
Capturing an impression of the natural beauty of Oregon is what
I enjoy most. An award winning artist, I am drawn to a variety of subjects
and media but use mostly pastel and watercolor. Paintings can be
seen at Art & Soul Gallery, Rogue Gallery, The Rogue Regency Inn
and my studio.

Clay and Metal
Ashland Art Works
291 Oak Street, Ashland
I have been creating whimsical clay and metal art for over three
decades. My signature pieces are called “Crazy Birds and Friends.”
I hand build vases, bowls, trays, and 3-D birds as well. To incorporate
clay and steel into garden art pieces I also cut rusted metal with a
plasma torch. Currently I am learning how to powder coat metal outdoor
art. Call me to visit my home studio at 447 Pape Street in Ashland.

In my paintings, I strive to convey the unfiltered purity of the mystery
and magic in everyday life. Many of my paintings are of anonymous
people. Some are perplexed, and some are disturbed, while others are
proud and others are completely innocent of the chaos around them.
To me, a successful painting is one that not only has a good
composition, color and forms, but also has a story to tell. If I finish
a painting and it makes me smile or laugh, then I know I have done
what I set out to do.
762 B Street, Ashland
Claudia Law is an internationally recognized art quilter and teacher,
who has a seriously joyful relationship with fabric. Claudia’s vision is
to capture the beauty of nature and power of good design. She revels
in color and rejoices in texture, movement, luminosity and the illusion
of transparency - using paints, fibers, folded raw-edged fabric applique,
beading, fabric confetti, thread sketching, free-motion quilting and 3-D
fabric motifs as needed, to bring life to each unique creation.
Clay and bronze sculptures as well as painting intertwine with a common
thread of motion in these two very different mediums in Inger’s work.
Inger is a prominent vocalist and songwriter in the Rogue Valley and her
visual works are found to be lyrical and expressive in brushstrokes and
in the surfacing of her sculptures.
Recently, Inger has executed several large scale monuments in bronze
and is available for commission work in both sculpture and painting.
