In a Year of Tribute to the EARTH:

Fire and Rain: Our Changing World

Featured in The Flick Gallery’s May show will be Carolyn Keys Jewelry, forged like fire and with droplets like rain.  Carolyn Keys is a collection of jewelry designed and crafted by Carolyn Keys Hanisch in Bucks County Pennsylvania.      

Carolyn's designs artfully combine forms that have a unique style while at the same time imparting a feeling of timelessness.  This is achieved through the use of rich materials that only get more beautiful with time.  Her design is clean and balanced, but at the same time organic and imperfect. She's inspired by natural forms, architectural geometries, and ancient traditional arts. 

Carolyn's work is made to last. It is made for the person who expresses themselves through simple hand wrought accessories. It is made for those who want to know the story behind the objects they surround themselves with, to feel good using them, and to   reject the culture of the disposable.



And blooming for spring rains, right out of the fiery kiln, are Owen Mann’s wall-hung ceramic blossoms.  He says: "I create floral pieces from porcelain and clay for reasons that I cannot really explain       except that I am captured by the sacred geometry and simplicity of each flower. I want viewers of my pieces to understand the fragility of the earth and my intention is to inform about the alarming change in our world's environment. Everyone loves flowers and I  cannot make anything else at this time."
