Intro
This summer, we didn't do any real travelling or go out. We mostly just stayed home in the studios which both look out into our garden. It was nice to see nature thriving despite all the difficulties with Covid, the economy and other troubles in the world.
 

Artist list

Dan Adams, Cynthia Toops
Cynthia Toops' brilliant technical skills are evident as she reinvents and transforms the potential of micro mosaic inlay. The artist mixes polymer clay like paint,  creating limitless hues of colour. She then rolls the polymer into threads, slicing and minutely forming tile beads to inlay. Cynthia's process is unique and distinctive, and her intricate micro mosaic polymer clay brooches, beads, and necklaces become
miniature marvels.

Often collaborating with her husband, Dan Adams, she combines her masterful, micro mosaic skills with Adam’s multi-patterned, lamp-worked glass beads.
The artists' work can be found in various public collections including Kobe Lampwork Glass Museum, Japan; Mingei International Museum, CA; Museum of Arts and Design, NY; Museum of Contemporary Craft, OR; Museum of Fine Art Boston, MA; Newark Museum of Art, NJ; Philadelphia Museum of Art, PA; Racine Art Museum, WI; and Tacoma Art Museum, WA.

Opening hours: 
Thursday and Friday: 11:30 - 5:00 h. Saturday: 11:00 - 4:00 h.
Possible by appointment.
