This week’s featured local artists
Many of the market’s artists are online only for the season. Each week, we feature a selection of MCFM artists on our blog, Instagram stories @mcfarmersmkt and through our digital art market email newsletter. Find unique gifts, kitchenware and and other handmade items while supporting local, sustainabilty-driven artists. This week is our final digital art market of the outdoor season. Thank you for supporting local makers over the past several months!
THIS WEEK’S PICKS:
Using durable stoneware clays on the potter’s wheel, Matthew Krousey creates functional, food safe art, decorated with abstract landscapes and native Minnesota species. The warmth of each piece comes from using the traditional german style of salt firing.
Fair Anita is a Minnesota based social enterprise employing 8,000 woman artists across 9 countries to create fair trade accessories. Their team of female entrepreneurs uses recycled and upcycled materials when creating their products.
Through forging, soldering, hammering, stone-setting, Emily Madland creates beautiful wearables by hand in her South Minneapolis studio. Each piece uses foraged sterling silver and gemstones, as well as other local, upcycled, fair trade materials whenever possible to create gemstone jewelry. Every piece is as unique as the individual stone and metal used to create it!
