You may remember Lauren Beacham from when we had her Polaroid necklaces and earrings in the 50/50/50 show last year. She has gone even further with the Polaroid concept and made these beautiful and interesting ceramic tile clocks, nightlights, and lamps.
These are some of my favorites:
Come in and take a look! Makes a great last-minute holiday gift!
Visit our Flickr to see more photos of Lauren’s work.

Laural Virtues Wauters’ mesmerizing artwork explores the meditative art of the mandala. Creating a mandala is a form of active meditation that quiets your mind and allows you to journey within making the invisible visible.
Laural was born in Frankfurt, Germany and grew up in Algoma. She has written about her epic adventure of self-discovery and revelation in her new book, Tree Oracle: The True Story of Carmen Sylvia, which is available at Door to Door Books in Algoma.
Laural’s current series of artwork are colorful representations of the seven Chakras, as well as mandalas that she has visualized and created. For more information about her artwork, visit Laural’s website at www.mandalashaman.com or stop by The Eclipse Gallery at 507 4th St. (Hwy 42) in downtown Algoma.
I am stoked to now be carrying these fabulous clay pendants by local artist Stephanie St. John now at Eclipse!
Each is unique, and for between $10-$20, you can’t beat ’em!
I am very excited that we now have original art, jewelry, and greeting cards by Kim Geiser at Eclipse!
Just one of many, humorous, hand-drawn greeting cards! $4
Kim Geiser is an artist from Manitowoc who owns Persimmons, an open studio/shop that features Kim’s work and great classes and workshops. This month she has beading basics, handpainted mugs, and mosaic classes. Keep checking her website for more opportunities to create with Kim!
You can find these items, and much more, at Eclipse or on our online shop–we have a new domain name for the shop portion of the website that is easier to remember: www.eclipsegalleryshop.com
Hokey, I know,but I’m in a good mood today. Looking around the gallery, I find that we have a lot of ORANGE things right now—one of my favorite colors–so energizing, uplifting, and positive. In the middle of winter, we could all use a little brightness in our life!
