As a nature and travel photographer, Mary Louise Ravese captures the wonder of the outdoors, offering a snapshot of natural beauty for all to see.

With subject interests that include country landscapes, wildlife and architecture, her work often has a painting-esque feel, using lively colors, textures and shapes to offer her unique perspective on a fleeting moment of time.

Through her company Bella Vista Photography, Mary Louise’s work can be found in collections throughout the United States, and has also been used in a number of calendars, books and websites. The Virginian also is a regular instructor for photography classes and workshops, and serves as a competition judge for clubs around the region.

Dennis Ray / Nature's Creations

metal / sculpture & collectibles

Hometown: Rockville, MD

Artist Website

From leaves to flowers, the beauty that’s found in nature is unmistakable. At Nature’s Creations Jewelry, Dennis Ray creates natural botanical wearable art and sculpture using a unique copper electroforming process that preserves the original item for eternity. This room temperature process layers copper over the cuttings without destroying them. By covering botanical items in copper, then finishing them with precious metals or colored patinas, they make custom, handcrafted pieces of art. As a result, each customer owns a truly individualized piece of jewelry where no two are exactly alike. “My art has been my sole vocation and my passion. Every year, I travel around the world on a mission to collect samples from nature — historic trees, vineyard leaves, noteworthy plant cuttings — and return to my studio, where I capture them in copper. Often finished with lush patinas and accent paint, each piece I create is one of a kind — just as in nature.”

Artist Website

Artist Kara Raymond began working with metal in high school when she was introduced to jewelry making. Years later, she trained to be a jeweler and metalsmith, taking classes at jewelry schools, art centers and local colleges. Today, Kara works out of her home studio where she makes each piece of jewelry by hand. She pays close attention to shape, texture and movement, revolving her designs around those three concepts. Her two series, Japanese Mokume Gane and Siena, give her the flexibility to work with two very different styles. Mokume, the ancient Japanese technique of metal patterning, features a variety of organic textures, while her Siena series is focused on simplicity and uses pearls, stones and classic metal work. So whether you’re looking for an expressive piece, or something a bit more understated, stop by Kara’s booth and peruse through her selection of beautiful jewelry. Her earrings, necklaces and pendants also make wonderful gifts.

The imagination that goes into handcrafting any work of art is incredible. This is certainly true with the quirky sculptures crafted from metal, wood and other materials created by Don Rea and his Don Rea Designs collection. Find sculptures to suit just about any interest, whether it be a student, musician, bartender, golfer or cyclist. The possibilities are only limited by Rea's imagination. Rea crafts sculptures and figures from metals such as copper, aluminum and tin. He inserts humor and whimsy into each shaping of the material from spiral-twisted legs to bright colors to provide life to a grasshopper riding a penny-farthing cycle. His work is imaginative and thoughtful, and you might think some of his sculptures will make the perfect gift for someone you know.

Hometown: Greenwich, NY

Heather Reid, the head of her eponymous clothing brand, Heather Reid Designs, uses her creative eye to craft handmade clothing from hand dyed, hand painted fabrics. Working with cotton, wool and fleece she designs outfits and single pieces that are as eye catching as they are comfortable. Tops, jackets, pants and other clothing pieces come in a muted color palette that is conducive to mixing and matching to curate outfits that are ready for work, ready for going out, or ready to just look fashionable on the weekend. Reid’s love of nature is captured in many of her hand painted fabrics. Leaves, branches, birds and blooms are often her prints of choice. Reid uses the finest quality pigments, dyes, and natural fibers and typically paints in a casual, freestyle manner. High-low hemlines, contrast stitching and relaxed silhouettes add to the natural, carefree vibe of the line. Living in Greenwich, NY, Reid often exhibits her designs at area venues including the Sugarloaf Craft Festival.

Daniel Riccio / Riccio Artifacts

metal / sculpture & collectibles

Hometown: East Hampton, CT

Artist Website

Born in the Bronx, Daniel J. Riccio cut his teeth in the New York City art community throughout the 1970s. Now based in East Hampton, Conn., this imaginative artist doesn’t tend to favor one medium. He crafts one-of-a-kind paintings, sculptures, jewelry and metal designs that are united by their intricacy and detail. He also offers an interesting collection of three-dimensional design and spiritual work honoring Christian and Jewish traditions, including hand-crafted dreidels, menorahs and Noah’s Ark figurines.

Riccio’s Artifacts collection is one of the most favored among his collectors, especially his variety of tiny objects inspired by his background in biology. These tiny carved figurines are minute but impactful, with an impressive level of detail accounted for in each and every piece. Sugarloaf Craft Festivals is proud to welcome Daniel J. Riccio artwork at some of our annual juried art shows throughout the Mid-Atlantic. Make sure to connect with the artist to see which Sugarloaf events he’ll be attending this year.

Sabra Richards / Sabra Richards Steel & Glass

Hometown: Worton, MD

Artist Website

Award-winning glass maker Sabra Richards currently designs sculptures made from kiln-formed glass. She cuts sheets of fusible glass and builds the design while the glass is in the kiln. Sabra fuses 16 individual pieces of glass into a solid block and then puts the block into the furnace where she turns and heats it until it becomes flexible. Then she “pulls” it into the cane to finish her work. Her sculptures range in size from less than 20 inches to 10 feet high. Sabra designs wall pieces as well as free-standing sculptures and is able to custom build a sculpture to meet your color and size specifications. Her work has been exhibited at the U.S. State Department: Collections of Heads of State installation; IBM Atlanta; Ann Arbor Public Library; Northwest Airlines Terminal in Portland Oregon, and many other displays. We’re thrilled to have her as part of the Sugarloaf Crafts family.

Hometown: New York, NY

Artist Website

New York City-based Ossi Hats, Etc. is the brainchild of textile artist Ossi Rioux. Her unique, hand-crafted hats are the cornerstone of her portfolio. Rioux actually developed her very own nontraditional hat-making technique, which features a soft block method for shaping, a heat transfer method for dying and custom-made patterns on her hand-selected fabrics. Ossi Hats are constructed with some of the most desirable materials, including wool, cotton, velvet, satin, silk and grosgrain.

Each and every hat made by Rioux is hand-planed, cut and sewn by the artist in her New York City studio. Not only does Rioux create one-of-a-kind hats, but she also makes standout scarves and quilts using a fascinating blend of textured fabrics and trim. Sugarloaf Craft Festivals proudly hosts Ossi Hats, Etc. at many of our annual Mid-Atlantic juried art and craft shows. For more information on where to find Rioux’s original creations, check our schedule to see which artists will be at which events.

Hometown: Teaneck, NJ

Hailing from Teaneck, NJ, Karen Roberts Stained Glass brings a unique collection of stained glass to Sugarloaf Craft Festivals. Roberts’ original stained glass artwork is as narrative as it is beautiful, with each one telling a story in glass and light. Roberts typically employs the Tiffany Method of stained glass making (also called foiling), where the edges of each piece are wrapped with copper foil tape. This allows for a stronger and more intricate design.

Roberts is also known for creating some unique functional stained glass pieces, including stained glass key racks, mirrors and more pieces that double as one-of-a-kind artwork. Sugarloaf is proud to position Karen Roberts Stained Glass along a community of glass artists creating stained glass, fused glass and blown glass. Our Mid-Atlantic juried art show has been inviting the country’s best artists and crafters to come and display their work since 1975.

Gabriel Rodriguez of Mexica Crafts is the talent behind his collection of exclusive handcrafted leather mocs, boots, purses and more. From his Woodstock, NY location, he meticulously creates one-of-a-kind pieces from supple leather that exude comfort and style. His creations are reminiscent of the Native American culture and are available in a range of hues, including browns, greys, greens, red and more. The leather develops a rich patina over time, adding to its appeal. In an era when it’s often said that “they don’t make things like they used to,” Mexica Crafts reminds us that artisans are still crafting quality products. Crafted by hand with attention to detail, many of the items are embellished with fringe, braiding details and contrast stitching. Rodriguez describes his designs as having great energy and a connection with the earth. “They are unique pieces, just like each individual.” Customers often say that his leather creations are beautiful art to wear and that there’s spirit and personality in each piece.
