Nina Schatzkamer Miller
Nina Schatzkamer Miller makes brightly colored kiln-fired glass art. Sheets of glass are cut, shaped and fired in her home studio kiln and made into many different objects. Most of it is functional art such as platters, bowls and plates; some is wearable, like jewelry and hair accessories; other pieces are purely decorative or whimsical.
Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Kim has worked in a variety of media through the years: graphite, pen-and-ink, charcoal, paper, mosaics and painting. Her papercut art has focused mainly on Judaica, with themes concentrated in Jewish texts from the Torah, Talmud, and midrash. Her work has been created for collectors and synagogues worldwide and has been exhibited in venues from Jerusalem to New Orleans, Knoxville, and Nashville.
Austin Miller is an emerging ceramic artist with an emphasis on form over function; making pieces without excessive ornamentation. Pieces are wheel thrown, have carved features, and there’s a synergy and cooperation between the carving and the form. The aesthetic quality comes from the shape and proportion, as opposed to how it’s decorated. His study of the Chinese language has influenced his art and an Asian influence can often be seen in both form and finish.
