Ken Beerbohm ~ Sculptor

 

IMG_2225 (1)“I was born and raised in Neihart, Montana. Growing up with few possessions, the mountain behind our house became a giant playground full of nature’s wonders from moss covered rocks to spring creeks. My love of what nature could produce was firmly rooted. My family moved to California when I was in my teens and I eventually graduated with a degree in design and industry from San Francisco State University. I then went on to work for a custom plastics company for six years. In 1974 when the company moved,  I realized my true passion was in sculpting. While this was happening, a stream of industrial model-making jobs flowed in and shortly my art career was put on hold in order to tap into more profitable jobs to raise our family.  The Plasticsmith became the company name I would use for the next 33 years. The work served the purpose of putting our kids through college but I could never shake off the “art bug.”

About 10 years ago, I  started carving pieces from wood during the spare time I could find. A few years later, I started sculpting with clay. In 2007 I closed down my business and I now had the freedom to pursue my real calling. I began working with traditional clay pieces, then turned to a 2-part epoxy clay mixed with wood, wire mesh, steel rods and foam. This opened up new dimensions and many odd creatures were born.

I feel fortunate to have the time, and honored to share my works with whomever may enjoy them”.

Ari Eickert ~ Painter

Ari Eickert

Ari Eickert was born and educated in Germany.  As a young man he played
Jazz and his band, the Flower Street Jazzmen, was heard on the radio and in different venues throughout Europe.

After Ari received his degree as a Mechanical Engineer, he emigrated to the United States with $15.00 in his pocket.  He found that it was impossible to play Jazz in New York without being a union member, even in Harlem.

Within a year, Ari was drafted into the U.S. Army.  He then earned a post-graduate degree in Industrial Management and for the next 20 years he worked for various companies in the United States and overseas.  He founded and ran his own manufacturing company until he retired 25 years later.

In retirement, Ari started to play music again and to paint, which had always been a passion throughout his life.  Ari’s preferred media is watercolor and his favorite subjects are related to water and boats or topics from his world-wide travels.

“As a graduate of Kent State with a BA in Graphic Design I have worked as a graphic designer for corporations and non-profits for many years. I have always had jobs that require creativity but have decided it is time to get back to my roots of pottery.

When I am not indulging my two fantastic sons and awesome husband, I am playing in the mud to produce my own unique line of ceramics”.

Jane Huml is a retired special education teacher.  She was born and raised in Cleveland and went to Cleveland Public Schools, where she later taught.

She lived in Shoreline, CT for over a decade where she worked with special needs adults at a Vocational Life Skills Center called VISTA.

“My husband and I moved to Vermilion Township in 1977 to a house that he, a retired firefighter, had built.  I had a 40+ year career as a trauma nurse and clinical trial specialist. When I retired, I needed a relaxing hobby.

I began making gold jewelry with Swarovski crystals and vintage beads.  I so enjoyed the play of colors and light, I decided to try painting with watercolors and fell in love with this form of artistic expression.  It has been 15 years and I still love to paint.  Seascapes and animals are my favorite subjects.”
