Among the artisans exhibiting is potter Liz Lubansky from Oak Ridge, New Jersey. Describing her work, Liz said, “Clay is a versatile and expressive medium that allows me to experiment and create new ways of looking at form. It also gives me the ability to express different topics. I often take themes and use clay and natural form to convey the concept. I demonstrate the exploration of nature and creation by creating pottery that is both beautiful and functional, and through creating free form sculptures. The combination of clay with other materials, such as wood, helps me to communicate various ideas in an organic and authentic way. My goal is to create beauty, even if the theme involves hardship or struggle.”
Other artisans include Pia Sei-Goldberger, Love Expressions, with unique jewelry elegantly created from buttons and found objects. Displaying old fashioned femininity, her designs will delight those with a love of by-gone charm. Pine Orchard Studio creates paintings with collage and mixed media. Fitting in with the garden theme, there will be works reflecting the natural world and whimsicalities.
Lasdon Park was purchased by William and Mildred Lasdon in 1939, where they lived in the 1933 house which was a copy of George Washington’s Mount Vernon. The Lasdon family were great travelers, and had a passion for horticulture; thus creating a series of gardens on the property with international flavor. This is an ideal setting in which to spend an early summer day looking at beautiful things created by humans and by nature.
