John Brabander creates vases, candle holders and lamps from Lake Erie driftwood. Fused glass work by Kim Carlson.
So many lovely things to see...
Charming wheel thrown ceramics by Colin Budd.
Gotta love mermaids. Our cast iron mermaids are the only items we carry that are not locally made, but you wanted them so we brought them back!
Also in this pic is a deer painted on driftwood by Laura A. Brown and watercolor prints by Jim Siemer.
Lara Trech is well known for her nautically themed beaded pieces...both elegant and whimsical. Denise Gallup's beach glass jewelry is a summer favorite.
Lake Erie lucky stone earrings and pendants by Beth Akins are all the rage for beachcombers in the know!
These pristine little "stones" with the inscribed "L" shape are actually the ear bones, (otoliths), of Lake Erie's sheephead, (fresh water drum). While the fish is fun to catch, it is not so very prized by anglers...but looking for lucky stones on our beaches has been a past time going back generations.

Desdemona's Art Gallery is home for good! After renting space at two previous locations Bailey VanKirk and husband James Cagle, (left), purchased and renovated this cool century building. The gallery was originally founded by Laura Brown Egan along with her best friend, Sandee Abele, who is now happily retired. Laura and husband D'Arcy Egan, (right), are still involved in the business but thrilled to pass on operations to, (daughter), Bailey.
