Dolores Kueffler
Artist of the Week 
Artist Statement:
Having dabbled in a variety of creative arts, I found glass fusing about 15 years ago and fell in love with the magic of melting and forming glass.

Flow, light, color, boldness and uniqueness are key elements important to me in creating my art.  My work has a kind of ‘minimalist’ quality as I enjoy the purity of glass as it reflects light and color, and the transmutation that happens when it is melted, layered and fired at different temperatures.  I enjoy making ‘one of a kind’ pieces that are unique.

I also believe strongly in art and beauty as a part of all of our lives.  So I create both functional and whimsical affordable pieces that can be in anyone’s home or jewelry that enhances ones’ own beauty.

My home-studio is located in Vancouver, WA.  Please email me if you’d like to set an appointed to come by to look or shop!

Artist of the Week 
Ajit Aserappa
Grasshopper Woodworks
@grasshopperww ”Our senses transfer information to the brain and it’s from this we make thousands of decisions every day. In a world filled with reproduced imagery and sounds, working with wood and hand tools engages us with a palpable reality. It’s a reality based on thought, effort, and a sense of accomplishment.”
Paul Sellers, An Artisan Course
Wood and Metal Eye Candy

We love creating things. We are trying to make a difference. In a world in which most things are mass produced and disposable, we make things differently. We use mostly natural material: wood, stone, and metal. We shape and assemble our products by hand. We make things that are natural, durable, and repairable.

Kristi Usher

Kristi Usher Fine Art
Kristi was born and raised in Clatskanie--living, working, ranching and raising a family in Columbia County Oregon. She grew up drawing horses she was surrounded by before becoming a commissioned oil painter and bronze sculptor, and building a professional body of work. Kristi prides herself on bringing accuracy to her art and nailing down the details in the subjects she loves so much. "If there's something I'm not sure of, I will research it until I have it right. I really appreciate when people come to my displays, look at my art, and are impressed by the authenticity. I put my heart into it." #artsy #artcollector #artgallery #abstract #painting #artistsoninstagram #illustration #draw #artisticportland #artoftheday #pdxdowntown #instaart #arte #abstractart #fineart #portland #contemporaryart #art #handmade #creative #sculpture #bronce #artist #drawing #paint #fineart #kristiusher #gallery #artwork #pdx

Artist of the Week:
Susan Hunter
@bodiedesign 
Making jewelry came to me via love.  In 2000 I fell for a wonderful man named Stephen.  He had the heart and soul of an artist. Through Stephen I met his best friend Art and his wife Marty (a professional jewelry artist).
I was always a dabbler in the arts (painting, writing and photography years before), and I felt curious to try my hand at jewelry after looking at Marty’s beautiful work.  I started taking metal smith classes in September.  Stephen and I married on November 9.  Stephen was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) four weeks later.  I dropped the class, and we focused on Stephen living the best life he could have in what would be two years. 
After he died I made it a mission to try to create something positive and artful in his memory.  Marty showed me how to manipulate wax for casting.  I made a pendant entitled “Kick ALS” in the shape of an hourglass.  I had multiples made from the master in sterling silver and donated them to the ALS Association to help raise some money to find a cure.
It took a while to figure out what I wanted to do with jewelry after the tribute piece for Stephen.  But then I made a heart that was off-center—on purpose. And then somebody wanted to buy it.  Really?  So I started making more pieces, getting more exposure for what I was making, then a website, started selling at shows (art festivals and the like) and now I’ve joined this Artists’ Co-operative: Artistic Portland.
Along the way I met and married a wonderful man named Robert who has supported and encouraged me to pursue my artsy ways.  I am very fortunate to have found love again!
Artistic Portland has been fun and kept me busy.  I have loved getting to know other artists and seeing their creations.
