Dan works on his grandfather's lathe to create magnificent wooden objects like pens and dreidels.
Joan paints her surroundings using light and shadow and love of the Berkshires.
Molly paints vibrant patterns from the arrangement of objects.
Dan Burkhard: I have always loved working with my hands. Trained as an electrical engineer, the process of moving from a design diagram to a working model has always been a fascination. Creating writing instruments, bottle stoppers shaving kits, kitchen and table implements, tops, yo-yos, cutting boards, and lazy-susans from a block of wood or acrylic has moved from a hobby to a home business over the past several years.
Joan Burkhard: While I believe you need a lifetime to become truly proficient, painting is a passion I embrace with time and energy. I paint what I love – and as someone who cares deeply for people, I am often drawn to the human form to attempt to capture a moment in time.
Molly Pomerance: Pattern and color are the twin impulses that drive my work. Color, vibrant and true engages me; pastel subtleties somehow rarely match my mood.
