Featured Artisan: Erich Breimhurst

Erich Breimhurst

BIO: I like to create functional and artful objects from found or discarded wood.   I enjoy searching the rivers and forests of Pennsylvania for these materials, other times I simply rescue them from other woodworkers or from dumpsters near home renovations projects.  I hope to bring the wood back to life in the furniture and carvings I make.  I feel that its very important to keep the wood out of landfills or from being burned.

Underground Artisans Marketplace will feature Erich Breimhurst and 15+ other artisans this coming Saturday, April 9th. 1pm-5pm at Schlow Library (211 S. Allen St., Downtown State College).

Featured Artisan: Katie Blevins

Beaded jewelry, decorative items

I have an intense love of color that I credit to growing up in the Southwest and lots of finger painting. I lived in the tiniest apartment once on impulse because the rooms were painted red, teal, purple, and lime green by a previous tenant and all of my stuff matched when I moved it in. I like to make things with lots of color and often with little rhyme or reason to what I make. Most of my current projects involve beaded jewelry and decorative items.

Come out to see art by Katie Blevins and 15+ other artisans at the Underground Artisans Marketplace on Saturday, April 9th. 1-5pm at Schlow Library (211 S. Allen St)

Featured Artisan: Marie Taylor of Cassia Elements

Natural soaps, body care, cleaning products.

BIO: Cassia Elements began as an experiment in essential oil blending to create natural, safe, inexpensive and great smelling soap, body care, and cleaning products for founder Marie Taylor, her family, and her pets. The therapeutic properties of essential oils fit perfectly into Marie's ideas about holistic health and natural medicine, and it made sense for her to create a product that not only smells delicious, but is also close to nature in its simplicity of ingredients. Cassia products use only the finest therapeutic grade oils, and are synergistically blended to engage your mind and body.
