Our constantly evolving collection includes Lamps and Lighting, Turned Wood Products, Fine Art, Ceramics, Photography and more. Most of these items are one-of-a-kind and have the highest quality.
On display you may find Dan Geraci’s hand-forged jewelry – often his designs are based on a historic artifact from a sunken treasure, one of a kind ceramics from Nancy Quickert, James and Cindy Searles work of wood and clay, paintings by William Dunn of Pescadero, and photographs on aluminum and archival prints from Dana Pitchon of La Honda. Most of the works you find in our gallery can be packed and shipped for immediate delivery. Many artisans are also available to create unique items to suit your personal tastes and vision.

“Knowing that people will be living with and using the pottery that I make with my hands is quite an honor for me. I like the work to have a nice balance and feel, with colors that are soft and pleasant to the eye, to fit into any room or use.”
Cindy Searles (Somona) – Maker of fine ceramic mugs, vases, tiles & fun air plants! She always is working on a new design to appeal to nature lovers in all habitats; sea life, birds, cats and the cutest hedgehogs!
Nancy Quickert (Moss Beach) – Nancy makes pots that are useful, easy to handle and durable. “I want a pot to be easy to handle so that even with the weight of what it holds, it still feels comfortable.” With her life long passion to the clay she creates the most stunning glazes that echo the tones we see and love everyday!

Stephanie Martin (Santa Cruz) – Stephanie Zeiler Martin is a painter and printmaker living on the California coast. Each medium makes its own demands. Plein aire painting is immediate and engaging; the light is continually changing and the elements –wind, fog, heat, lightning, ants, and mosquitoes– are always at play.
Joanne Perez Robinson (Gilroy) – “My goal is to continue to grow as an artist and learn as much as I can so I can keep creating.”
Rebecca Holland (Half Moon Bay) – She has been painting oil on canvas landscapes for nearly 50 years. Her passion has been driven by the natural beauty she sees in the fog and the light on the redwood forest, the ocean and the farmlands of rural California.
“When I bring life to my photographs through the use of light, composition, and form, I know I’ve succeeded in making a worthy piece of art.”
Dana Pitchon (La Honda) – Photographs on aluminum and archival prints. Dana has been exhibiting her work in Prague, Boston, Tampa, and now the Bay Area for the last 38 years.
