Pam calls herself “the other Pam” to me, because at one time I was having a merry mix-up in my head between her and another Rochester Artisan Pam. Actually it wasn’t until I met them both in person at the same time that I realized they weren’t the same person. Hey, I never said I was the sharpest knife in the drawer!

Pam’s newest creations are castle theaters, like the one pictured above. I saw them in person at the first show a couple of months ago where she offered them and I think the paint was still wet, that’s how “fresh” they were. She lovingly hand paints all the details that make these castles so adorable. Each one comes with 4 finger puppets, also made by Pam.

Imagine the hours of play unleashed by these incredible creations! Then the theater folds up nice and neat, puppets inside, latches shut and can be carried around by the built-in handle.

From Pam’s Etsy Shop biography:

“I began playing the cello when I was 11 or 12, and I am a professional cellist and teacher. While I was a child, our house was always full of arts and crafts, and we always had projects we were working on. Children’s classes at Rochester’s Memorial Art Gallery were lots of fun, and I even gained a small reputation as a go-to kid for party decorations (the life-size elephant head was a notable job; chicken wire and wet newspaper everywhere). I enjoy being busy, and I can’t make two identical items – it’s not what I enjoy. Anything you see on this site is one-of-a-kind, made with great pleasure.”

But wait – there’s more!

This is what Pam was making when I first met her – jewelry from hand-painted wood beads. Again with the tiniest detail! Look at those tiny dots, for instance! After painting the beads individually, no two alike, Pam adds in glass beads for a very funky look. The added bonus is one can wear a big chunky necklace with very little weight. Nicely done.
