Pocketa Pocketa, Pocketa, edition 6 of 15
Bronze 35.5 x 8 x 6.5 (including balloon)
Pocketa Pocketa Pocketa is the sound an old jalopy makes in a 1950s cartoon. The balloonist stands on a towering precipice ready to fall or take flight. This is a jumping off point, the leap of faith that is creativity. That being said the difference between the balloon and the weight of the physical is the spiritual dichotomy that is our reality. – Michael Hermesh
The Hat Box Man, edition 7 of 15
Bronze, 26 x 9 x 5.75
The Hat Box Man is the person who supplies hats to dreamers when required. Every night he runs from dream to dream delivering them and every morning he packs them up and takes them away. – Michael Hermesh
Perfect Symmetry on a Cloudless Day, edition 3 of 15
Bronze, 18.5 x 7 x 5 (including balloon)
When sculpting or drawing a person I always like to think that the narrative behind the face is always much more descriptive than the exact physical representation. Objects or thoughts also have the power of narrative existence.
In this case, the rock is real to the adult figure in the sculpture but does not even exist to the boy. He may have the choice to adopt the rock as real, or he can choose to not give it being.
The beauty of seeing what is really there, somewhat like the fool who sees the emperor has no clothes, the absolute reality solidity and weight of the rock does not exist to impede the balloon’s flight. – Michael Hermesh
Oil on canvas 20 x 68 (diptych)
For me creating art is a passion. A celebration of the joy and colour to be found in life. – Kimberly Kiel
Between The Lines
Oil on canvas 72 x 18
As an artist, Kimberly is energetic, outgoing and charming, just like the paintings she creates. Her full-of-life attitude perfectly depicts her creations.
Let Me Count The Ways

Argentium & Sterling Silver Baroque Pearl Necklace
My jewellery is inspired by nature. Working with semi-precious metals, my designs transform them into one-of-a-kind sculptural necklaces, earrings, and rings. Each creation uses hand forged, fused, cast or reticulated elements, becoming a unique handmade piece of wearable art. – Darlene Letendre

Argentium Silver 2.5″ long
Every step of the process from design, through formation, to finishing is an exciting creative journey filled with opportunities to continually explore new designs, refine techniques and learn new ones. – Darlene Letendre

OneFooter Ring with Peridot
Sterling Silver, 1.25ct. Oval Bufftop Peridot, 18kt. Yellow Gold Bezel, size 6.5
My passion is setting rings in the Onefooter series with coloured stones. Because I treasure the stones the earth blesses us with, and out of respect for the stone cutters who use their expertise to bring out the stone’s beauty, I set them in 18kt. gold. – Dorothée Rosen
18kt. Yellow Gold
Each earring is made individually by hand, randomly shaping the square wire into organic shapes with simple hand tools. It never ceases to amaze me how much force is required to express in metal the elegance of a simple line.
