· Crosby & Taylor has it's roots in a love for woodworking, fabrics, ceramics, and a fortuitous venture into pewter metalwork.

· 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.
· Ceramic artist Robert Blue creates glazed stoneware pottery that is equally decorative and functional. Together with his wife, Susan, their handmade stoneware pieces and functional glazes are both beautiful and durably designed for everyday use. Blue Eagle has been creating unique handmade stoneware pottery at their studio and gallery in McHenry County, Woodstock, Illinois since 1984.
