Mary’s Fault – Mary Savage.


Handcrafted tile hot plates, coaters & spoon rests.

“I am a native Syracusian with over 20 years craft experience.  My time hot plates and coasters are hand crafted.  I use a heat transfer process to adhere the image to the tile and use a sealer to protect the image.  They are heat resistant and washable.

Some of the themes I offer are wine and drink, flowers and herbs, seasonal and holiday.  My items are also carried in several retail establishments and wineries in the area.”

Grim Desirables – Christophe Ennis & Mary Anne McClusky



Both Christopher and Mary Anne live and work in the Syracuse area and have been making art for over 20 years.

Expressing a visionary view of a perilous and futile future that reflects the dichotomy of beauty in nature and it’s vicious unforgiving horrors. Using automatism and surrealist abstraction with organic shapes, he commonly finds cephalopod-like and bird-like anthropomorphic creatures, defining them within his compositions. He is compelled toward these reoccurring creatures and finding their meaning in the worlds he creates.

Their organic abstract landscapes often exhibit horror vacui and tessellations of imaginary creatures, animals, the female form, macabre imagery, and nature in compositions that flow with illusive definition. As the images crowd and overlap they distort and grow, morphing and mutating with a subtle fluidity of chroma and value into a morass of the strange and unreal.


Using these techniques he creates an hallucinatory change and motion in his pieces that can be both subtle and abrupt creating depths and images often overlooked from casual viewing.
