Celebrate Mother’s Day Love at Luckey & Merrill Studio on May 3 & 4. Owen Sea Luckey and Kristin Merrill will be exhibiting their artwork in their studio. Come see, get inspired and shop “ReDo” the re-imagined, re-purposed one of a kind hand made garments by Owen Sea Luckey and the beautifully crafted and unique jewelry by Kristin Merrill.
Owen Sea Luckey is more than a textile artist, she’s a fabric designer, knitter, seamstress, decorator, fabric junky, color collector…and she loves to bake. It’s that eclectic mix of interests and skills that weave together to become RE-DO, a whimsical line of re-imagined wearables. Working with recycled knit garments, Luckey transforms the familiar into creative pieces of wearable art combining traditional craft techniques— knitting, felting, sewing, embroidery. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, enjoying unique hand embellishments: antique buttons, colorful, repurposed fabrics, hand-knit tendrils and drop-stitch lace.
Kristin Merrill is a jewelry designer who has always been surrounded by art, “The jewelry and sculpture I create are a reflection of what is happening in my life. I come from a technically trained background and love to experiment/break the rules with sterling silver. By fusing and melding the metal, I can create fluid, natural and organic one-of-a-kind pieces. I use materials like clear quartz, said to provide creativity, heal energy, promote clarity, and attune one to a higher self, something we all can use!” Merrill’s jewelry also features pearls, semi precious stones, driftwood and found objects.
