Cronquist transferred those skills to glasswork at the Minnesota Center for Glass Arts in Minneapolis where she has studied and now teaches. She also studied at the world renowned Corning Museum of Glass in New York, with Bill Gudenrath, John Miller, and Maestro Davide Salvadore. Her work is best known for its use of color and its balance between traditional techniques and contemporary design.

Saturday & Sunday, May 27th & 28th, 2017

10:00am – 5:00pm

Regional jewelry artist, Gabriel Guzman, will be onsite here at Angela Lensch Gallery over the holiday weekend featuring his latest collection of hand-crafted jewlery.18015868_10155259500663762_774925082_o

“As I continue to explore the possibilities of digital handcrafting (3D printing) in metals such as steel, brass, bronze, and sterling silver, I have included a new line of jewelry based on generative design to create intricate patterns impossible to sculpt in wax. Generative design allows for the creation of pieces that begin as simple shapes that evolve in a perfect marriage of art, and mathematics resulting in a perfect statement piece born of precious metals.

17976718_10155259500718762_477222300_oThis year’s collection also includes a line of hand made jewelry in copper and sterling silver using time honored metal smithing techniques. From the serious to the whimsical, the hand made collection includes a line of jewelry I call “Copper on Fire”, where fire, water and air produce unpredictable designs on the earthy metal, for a unique look. Even as a pair, earrings from the Copper on Fire line will be similar but never identical.

My newly discovered love for metal smithing now allows me to combine the modern with the old; contemporary artisanry, digitally handcrafted jewelry with the richness and uniqueness of traditional handcrafted finishings.”

17976798_10155259500668762_1929465732_o

Stop in over Memorial Day weekend and enjoy this amazing and diverse collection of jewelry. A small collection of Gabe’s work will remain in the gallery for the rest of the season. Refreshments and light snacks will be available throughout the event.

Ancient Symbols Meet Modern Design

Saturday, June 25th, from 10-5, 2016

flower.mandalaWhat a fascinating meet the artist we have for Saturday, June 25th, from 10-5. Gabriel Guzman will be here with his display of intriguingly
beautiful jewelry creations. Come and be amazed at designs that have evolved from living in 5 different countries on 3 different continents.  You can see the respect and beauty of each country exemplified in his pendants and earrings drawn from the ancient symbolism of these cultures. We can’t help but imagine that his Ph.D. in the field of Microbiology has only deepened his interest in detail and design for he has learned from the master, nature itself.
“The 2016 collection has afforded my designs smoother lines and crisp details.  And those smoother lines and details have brought a large selection of beautiful mandala necklaces and earrings in rich metals like silver and brass.  The transition and growth in my designs has found a men’s line of wearable steel that finishes your casual clothing perfectly and adds a nice dimension of the old world look.  As I like to flavor my work with looks from cultures around the globe, you will now also see some Rune, Celtic and Norse inspired jewelry.  I am now adding a few pieces with Swarovski crystals that catch the lights and shimmer beautifully.”
His process is best described in his own words,  “To make my designs come to life in the tridimensional world, every piece goes through a six-step process but I spend most of my time in the creative-designing state.  I consider the properties of a particular metal when I produce the first sketches; a lot of detail and fine curves are best achieved with precious metals (gold, silver, platinum), polished semi-precious metals (brass or bronze), or with metal plating (gold, or rhodium) on a base of polished brass.  For less detail and a ‘rougher’ or antique look and texture, steel in different finishes (polished gold, polished bronze) would make the piece stand out. “
Let’s give Gabriel a warm Door County welcome and hear in his own words and experience his personal journey through the creative process.

Angela Lensch Gallery is thrilled to host the third annual jewelry trunk show for artist, Rachel Frye, designer and self-taught jeweler of CIVAL Jewelry Designs. The event will take place on Saturday, May 7th, 2016, from 12-5pm.

Rachel Frye’s original designs were born out of a love for found objects and a desire to give them new life. This led to the desire to create her own simple and easy to wear unique objects, and in 2013 CIVAL Jewelry Designs by Copper Shoppe was born.

Frye teamed up with, creative business savant, Danielle LaVigne. Now the two make a cohesive line of contemporary accessories in brass and leather with a focus on function, form and durability. Finding inspiration from many traditional aesthetics, including vintage textile patterns, geometric forms, and strong architectural lines.

Wisconsin natives, with small town roots, their connection to the Midwest landscape and way of life is evident in their timeless creations. Drawing on the Great Lakes in particular, they bring color and texture to their designs, that are easy to wear, perfect for any occasion and made to last.

Join us on Saturday, May 7th to enjoy the handmade and exquisitely crafted, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets by CIVAL Jewelry Designs. Angela Lensch Gallery is located at 7653 Highway 42 on the south end of Egg Harbor and is Open Daily, May – October from 10am – 5pm.

An Afternoon with Theorem Artist, Cheryl Bishop

Saturday October 11th from Noon-5pm

image1 (6)Angela Lensch Gallery welcomes local artist Cheryl Bishop to her gallery on Saturday, October 17th from noon to 5pm.  The outdoor display will feature Theorem Paintings which include fruit, flowers and holiday themes. Theorem painting is an Early American decorative technique dating back to England as early as 1800. The style came into fashion between 1810-1840 when it became part of the curriculum of finishing schools for proper young ladies.  Although silk and watercolor paper was often used, cotton tea-stained cotton velveteen was the surface of choice. Oil pigments were applied by wrapping a small piece of cotton velveteen or wool around the artist’s finger.
Until recently the process of completing a Theorem Painting was time-consuming and tedious. The chosen design was traced, separated into stencil overlays and cut with an x-acto knife.  This is the process Cheryl was taught when she studied at Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts, in Ludlow, Vermont.  Theorem painting has enjoyed several periods of revival due to the members of the Historical Society of Early American Decoration. You will find it much more popular in the Eastern and Southern United States.
Cheryl has enjoyed over 20 years of stenciling fabric, walls and furniture throughout Door County. Join us to view her collection and to find out more about this historic art form.

Incase you haven’t noticed, things have cooled off a bit as Fall has arrived in Door County. The Angela Lensch Gallery has just the thing to help you stay warm and get cozy with this yearly phenomena. Please gather your friends and meet three lovely ladies who reign as” artists of warmth” on Saturday, October 10th, from 12-5pm.

You’ll want to come early because hand knit and hand crocheted creations will go quickly. Each one is absolute fuzzy, warm goodness. They are unique, comfy, irresistible and a fun fall fashion statement.

You will marvel at the intricate designs and whimsy tassels in Kathy Sander’s hand knit creations. Tawnie Perkovich, creator of the successful business Gypsy Stomp, has been crotcheting since she was 7 years old. All of her designs are original creations and crocheted by her alone. Come slip into a pair of the coziest wooliest mittens imaginable, hand crafted by Mary Schneider. 

All we need now, is hot cocoa

Jewelry Trunk Show with Kay Flick

Saturday & Sunday, September 5th and 6th

kay.flick

Searching for a little sparkle in your life? Become acquainted with jewelry that delightfully encompasses metaphysical energies while also providing that bit of pizzazz that perfectly compliments your favorite blouse, dress or even T-shirt. Sample a snack with a glass of wine and let us introduce you to Kay Flick and her marvelous world of Jewelry. Join us for a lively Meet the Artist on Saturday, Sept. 5th from noon – 5pm. A lifelong Wisconsin resident, Kay studied Studio Arts at the University of Wisconsin. In addition to creating art jewelry, she’s done extensive work in textiles and porcelain, won numerous awards and has had work accepted into the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Neville Public Museum and the J. Michael Kohler Art Museum.

Kay Flick makes one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces inspired by natural minerals, rocks and gemstones, each one with a story that dates back millions of years.  Once captivated by a stone, she explores the myriad details of it and begins the painstaking process of honoring it with countless tiny beads.  Finished necklaces are boldly designed yet intricately crafted with visual movement, reflections and shadows reminiscent of rivers and caves, often the very origins of her focal point stones.

She says:  “I enjoy the process of fitting precision cut beads together, the shimmer of facets and the compliment of irregular stone chips.  Yet, I cherish the imperfections in beads handmade by kindred craftspeople from around the world …other cultures.  I feel closer to them.  It’s a way of knowing them.”  In this way, each piece becomes a collaged tribute to countless craftspeople and the passage of eons.

Date:     Monday, Nov. 12th – Thursday, Nov.15th 2012

Time:    10:00am – 4:00pm

Instructor: Angela Lensch

Location:  Plum Bottom Studio

Materials Supplied: wood beads (12 – 10mm, 12 – 14mm, 12 – 19mm), glue, and sealer. Light snacks and drinks.

Concept:  Create a set of jewelry honoring a special woman in your life by using fabric and/or paper from her journey to create one-of-a-kind, wrapped beads that echo her personality.  In this workshop, Angela will teach you how to create these wrapped beads and then guide you through design styles and ideas for creating a set of one-of-a-king heirloom jewelry: necklace(s), bracelet(s), and earring(s). Keep it simple or go wild creating gifts for friends and family, the sky is the limit.  Add more concept to the design by using heirloom beads and/or using gemstones, pearls, crystals, etc. to accent the focal, heirloom, wrapped beads. The class will take a field trip to the local bead store to find the right additions to your designs and Angela will also have her private bead collection available to purchase beads and findings from.  To fabricate these beautiful jewelry items, Angela will teach how to administer the basic wire wrap technique used in the fabrication of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Also available, have Angela use her unique woven wire technique to weave together a necklace and/or bracelet with either 14k gold-filled or sterling silver wire featuring your new wrapped beads and accent beads.

Homework: Collect various fabrics: t-shirts, wedding dress, quilts, curtains, etc. (NOTE: silks do not work well for this process – cotton & cotton blends work the best.)

  • Small and large scissors

Angela has been a resident of Door County since 2002 and for the last five years has been the resident jewelry artist at Plum Bottom Pottery south of Egg Harbor. During this time Angela has developed her unique line of woven jewelry.

Recently Angela traveled to India, where she taught two wrapped bead workshops with a paper making women’s cooperative and a sari textiles woman’s cooperative; creating unique recycled and sustainable beads. In preparing for the workshops, Angela practiced making the fabric wrapped beads using some fabric from her grandmother’s apron which ended up becoming a beautiful necklace that is cherished by Angela, and is the inspiration for this class.

The gallery will be open late, debuting newly autumn inspired jewelry and pottery to be enjoyed while dining on amazing Indian food and local Stones Throw wine. During this evening of beautiful art and amazing Indian food I will be raffling off one of my woven gemstone and pearl necklaces, a woven web pendent necklace and a pair of my woven pearl earrings. 100% of the funds generated from the raffle and/or donations will go toward, Project India.

As I evolve as an artist and as a woman in the world, I am noticing a tug inside my heart to do more, to consciously realize my potential as a part of the larger whole.  In doing so, I hope to make a bigger impact on the world through my art of jewelry.” I have chosen to take the first step toward this idea by traveling to India to network and connect with local artisans and gemstone producers, and the broader Indian culture. Hear all about Project Indiaat this unique evening of art, cuisine and culture.

If you can not attend this event and want to support Project India, please email Angela: angelalensch@gmail.com or you can send support to:

ANGELA LENSCH, 7653 STATE HIGHWAY 42, EGG HARBOR, WI 54209.

Thank you!

As I travel through India it is my goal to

  • expand my knowledge and awareness of the broader picture of global gem and jewelry work
  • connect with and support local artisans creating jewelry components handcrafted out of local sustainable natural materials as well as gemstones and precious metals
  • build positive and lasting connections with just and conscious gemstone producers and artisans
  • support organizations that are creating job opportunities with established artists
  • share of my artistic abilities with those less fortunate to expanding their skills and thus,
  • create economic and social enterprise opportunities for populations in need
  • realize the importance of understanding the sourcing of materials, and the need to support Fairly Traded goods and materials
  • bring the depth and history of ancient India to our community
  • realize the beauty of learning from and working with people around the world who are intricately and increasingly connected to us

Everyone knows there is a lot of suffering in the world; my intention is not to depress but to elevate awareness that anyone can make a difference and do something to help. I invite you to join me on this journey. By supporting Project India, you will be helping make a difference in the world, with my art of jewelry being the vehicle.
