The Artists

Anna Fine Foer

While a fibers/crafts major at Philadelphia College of Art (now University of the Arts) she became fascinated by the relationship between maps and the land they represent, embarking on a lifelong interest in maps and collage.

Her work has appeared at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Maryland Governor’s Mansion, and the Israeli Embassy and is in the permanent collection of the Haifa Museum of Art and the Beer-Sheva Biblical Museum. She was awarded a prize for the Encouragement of Young Artists for work exhibited in the Artist’s House in Jerusalem.

Gary Stiewing

Attended Chester Institute of Technical Education in Stratford, CT to study architectural engineering. While working at a civil engineering firm, Gary soon realized that while he could visualize and design buildings, he felt distant from the creative process and missed having his hands in the work.  Soon after the birth of his first child, Gary left the firm and struck out on his own, never looking back.

Forty years later, from wooden boats, suspension, bridge, timber frame and straw bale homes, to his latest endeavors in furniture, Gary has been dedicated to building with spirit – the tree, yours, and his. Recognizing the importance of caring for our earth, he uses locally and ethically sourced raw materials and sustainable building practices.  The result is maximizing the inherent beauty of what is already there – the wood, and minimizing our carbon footprint. Win Win!
