Soul Formations

A casual observer of Rae Ebeling’s stick-and-stone sculptures would assume they are three-dimensional objets d’art. Ebeling points out, however, that there is a fourth dimension—an oft-overlooked dimension of the spirit. Sticks and stones, and the spirit residing in them, are the body and soul of each piece. Her art is the manifestation of a connection between the universe and herself. She says she is happy to extend this connection to all who appreciate her work. As personal talismans, or spirit objects, each of Ebeling’s pieces has more than a mere visual aspect. She leaves space in each creation for the viewer to add his/her own unique personal energy. Ebeling’s sculptures are synchr

Nadine Booth: Glass Artist

Nadine Booth says, “When I was growing up, my creative Mom tried to find my artistic side and my creative niche. Mom’s mission was to take my sister and me to as many creative classes as she could find. There (were) ice skating, oil painting, piano lessons, sewing, cooking, needlework, ceramics, etc. Each class I would endure hoping the end was near,” Ms. Booth said. “As I checked it off my imaginary list, Mom was rolling her eyes and throwing up her hands in exasperation already planning my next art exposure. Then in my late 20s, my hidden talents finally bloomed and I started painting, doing stained glass, sewing and designing. Mom would say, ‘Who did this? You did this? When did you learn

Miniature Masterpieces

Helen McLuckie

Helen McLuckie recalls, "As a child, I was painfully shy. One day, while sitting on a hardwood floor, I was given a piece of paper and a box of crayons. Oh, those beautiful colors, then one slipped off the paper. Oooh, the warm glow of the sun hitting the grain of the oak: I was exploring, creating, expressing limitlessly. Later the artwork was discovered and Mom said, 'I know it was you,' while wiping up my expressions. Looking back, my opening that box of beautiful colored crayons was my opening a door to the beginning of my artistic journey." Raised in Joliet, Illinois, she began her artistic career as a carver and sculptor of wood pieces, achieving considerable success in that medium wit

Teresa del Rito

In 1990, Terry (Teresa) Favour moved to the Northern New Mexico village of El Rito. She had spent the previous 10 years living in Santa Fe and had developed a real love for the art of the ethnic southwest. When she moved to El Rito, she realized that this artistic spiritual expression was alive and well. Having spent her life as a working artist, it was not surprising when she suddenly found herself inspired to develop her own version of this rich tradition. Nor was it surprising when she began to involve her son, Lorenz, because family involvement is traditional as well. As the years passed, it was obvious that Lorenz shared her delight in this process and together they have developed the r

Mary Sobrina Kuder

Gayle Potter: Glass Artist

On a trip to Italy about 20 years ago, she was inspired with the pictures Italian artists were creating with marble cut so precise as to create a “marble painting.” Upon her return to Sedona, Gayle was inspired to make a series of glass landscape mosaics using the same technique. In the past, Gayle has done a variety of glass work including fused glass plates, bowls, vases, jewelry, spirit sticks, mosaic mirrors and tables, gl
