I create mostly western clay art using a special process. I use clay and various stains, paints, and ink. When it is finished it looks like leather. I use recycled base pieces (frames, wood, etc). Every piece is a ONE OF A KIND! Take a look at my website: www.definitelycreative.org I also make several other crafted items including handmade greeting cards, Christmas ornaments, rock art, and 3 different types of cookies. This year I have added Inspiration jars, and Bear Hugs and Treasure Rocks.

You can also find my Clay art in Gadzooks located in Gardnerville, NV, and the NAA Gallery in Carson City NV.

I enjoy working with clay, finding this wonderful medium both relaxing and invigorating.  I am inspired by the infinite creative possibilities, through both hand-building and throwing on the wheel.  My pottery creations range from small Angel ornaments with positive affirmations to whimsical bowls to dragon sculptures, from hanging art pieces that feature horses, dandelions, lotus flowers and much more, to fanciful vases and dipping bowls.  I like to play with different firing and decorating techniques, using an electric kiln, pit-firing, and raku firing.

I am grateful for both the inspirations and opportunities to create these unique pottery pieces, and for those that take pleasure in providing them a new home – thank you!

Hello. For the past 18 years I have been fascinated with artist lampwork. Tiny glass beads, each individually fired, make unique and lovely jewelry pieces. I use them in making bracelets, watches, earrings, necklaces, pins and beaded bookmarks. I also make small one-of-a-kind gift cards; and enjoy hand-stitching onesies, burp cloths and baby bibs to match knitted receiving blankets.​ This year I will be making little girls' matching sets of scarves, mittens, hair embellishments, hats and bracelets.

I’m Suzy, and have been with A Touch of Class now for a couple of years.  I am so excited! My infatuation is all things beady, with a special penchant for bead woven jewelry – earings, brooches, bracelets, necklaces.  Each piece is created one bead at a time. Brooches and necklaces may also feature paper collage under glass, small images accented with glitter or gears and sometimes both! I will also have cork and ultrasuede wallets and coin purses, dog beds, cat toys, and eyeglass/sunglass cases.

Sharon Randall

I began my love with clay after my son was born in 1976 and have never looked back progressing from a studio in the garage to the family room to a full blown studio in Fairbanks as well as Nevada. 

Whimsy with function is my goal with work.  I  use a combination of slab, wheel-thrown and extruded techniques to make pieces. All pieces, except raku, are microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe. My recent work involves slip painting each piece while still damp with various techniques learned in a class this past winter with Carol Gouthro.  They are then fired once (bisque), then glazed with a clear glaze and fired a second time in either gas or electric kilns depending on the clay body.  If  my pieces make you smile while using them, they have succeeded in their purpose. Enjoy!

Theresa Ramsey

My name is Theresa Ramsey. I’ve spent time in Montana going to college and learning how to garden fruits, berries, and vegetables and to preserve (can) vegetables, jellies, sauces, BBQ sauces, fruit and berry based preserves. I also learned from my mom and have been around preserving most all my life. I have a large berry garden with blackberries, blueberries, boysenberries, strawberries, raspberries, and elderberries and an orchard of apples, peaches, plums, apricots, pears, and nectarines. I love to make fruit and or berry based jams and sauces and mix and match several berries and fruits together.
It’s important for me to use only fresh produce. I am able to use about 50% less sugar which makes the fruit and/or berries more flavorful and not have a store bought sugar taste.
I will do special orders with a minimum of 6 8oz. jars.  I absolutely love creating jams and sauces.

All of my candles and wax melts are made with 100% beeswax, which is a natural, sustainable, clean burning wax.

Ann Allen

Ann’s travels to India and Asia introduced her to the beauty and peace of Mandala Art designs.  She began painting Mandala art and found it very relaxing and meditative. Ann believes it’s all about finding peace in the symmetry of the design.  The circular design symbolize the idea that life is never ending and everything is connected. Ann creates Mandala art designs on tiles and wood as functional artwork.
Ann always wanted to return to the beautiful Sierra mountains and Lake Tahoe. Her dream came true in 2018 when she and her husband Mark returned to the mountains that she loved. This enabled her to enjoy her passion for art and painting. 
Ann hopes you will enjoy her Mandalas as much as she enjoys painting them.

Shirlee Snyder

My name is Shirlee and this is my first year at Touch of Class.  I am looking forward to your viewing and enjoying my amigurumi and stuffed animals.  Amigurumi is a Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures; however, amigurumi vary in size.

My amigurimi is made with acrylic yarn because it is hypoallergenic.  I also make crocheted eyes instead of using plastic safety eyes which can be dangerous for young children.

Please check out my amigurumi and stuffed animals…I know there is something just right for you, your child, grandchild, great grandchild, friend, family member, neighbor….Enjoy yourself!!
