Jo La Collage

  ·  JO LA COLLAGE is made in New Jersey, under the direction of designer Ellen Kelly. Along with her assistants, they create each piece by hand. What began as a colorful beaded jewelry collection grew into a mixed media metal line when Ellen fell in love with a concept and techniques of lost wax casting while taking a class at Art Guild in New Jersey. Many people ask what the name JO LA COLLAGE symbolizes. "JO" is derived from her son, Joseph, and "LA" from her daughter, Laura. "Collage" represents the mixed media of color & form.

Michael Michaud Table Art

  ·  The Michael Michaud Table Art collection features beautiful home accents that are cast directly from nature. Michael has been forming molds of natural elements into beautiful pieces of art for over 30 years. Each piece begins with a mold created directly from a botanical element using a process similar to the lost-wax casting method. Table Art is cast in pewter and plated in gold, with some designs also incorporating zinc, brass, sterling silver, semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls and hand blown or lampwork glass. These molded pieces are then transformed into unique and functional home decor and kitchenware. Michael Michaud's Table Art is handcrafted at the Four Seasons Design Studio in Bellmore, New York.
