Big Fun at Tonight’s First Friday at The Hungerford

Rie Mayway October Guest Artist with text

I have a colorful shop with 4 artist friends at The Hungerford, in suite 240. It’s an old factory, which was used to make syrup, now turned into 5 floors of artist studios and businesses. Some studios are the workplaces of artists and are open regular hours. Some, like our shop, are retail spaces only. We’re open First Fridays, Second Saturdays and by appointment 7 days/week.

Origamist Rie Maywar is our guest artist in Suite 240 on October First Friday and Second Saturday.

FirePaint Studio, Saturday Guest Artist at Hungerford 318

Patty Zachman Collage

Each piece I make has many layers of enamel and color. I start with a piece of copper which I hand saw, drill, file, sand and thoroughly scrub clean of all dirt and oil.

Then I sift a layer of powdered enamel onto copper, fire it in a kiln at 1200-1500 degrees F. I let it cool and scrub it again. This process is repeated over and over for every layer of enamel. Some pieces go through 7 firings. Both sides of the copper are enameled to give the piece stability and allow the wearer to show either side.

I’m so happy to be invited to be a guest artist this Second Saturday at The Hungerford! I’ll be selling my enameled copper jewelry at Hungerford 318, a colorful little shop owned by my husband and 4 other artists. I hope you’ll stop by! ~ Patty Zachman ~

Introducing: Hungerford 318

Hungerford Door 2

I’d heard of The Hungerford for a quite a while before I visited the former fruit syrup factory. It sounded so exotic and chichi! (That’s pronounced she-she.) While a volunteer at Rochester Contemporary Art Center, I had an opportunity to visit, to deliver postcards.

As I walked the halls of the 5 stories, I got actual goosebumps. I kid you not. “This is where I want to be.”

(It turns out there is nothing exotic & chichi about the old building with a wonky freight elevator, uneven floors, oddly patched ceilings, no two spaces alike. Quirky, urban and fun? Yes. I love old buildings put to new uses!)

To me, it was a dormitory of artists – what could be better? I didn’t really want to work out of there because I like working out of my home studio because it’s super convenient, obviously. And if I did have a working studio there, I feared I’d spend all my time socializing with other artists and never get any work done.

But I have wanted a permanent space for Rochester Artisans – to meet, hold classes, have exhibits. I couldn’t justify the expense but I couldn’t let go of the idea, either. It sat simmering in my brain for a couple of years.

And then, at the right time, with the right people, the idea morphed into a different kind of reality and I could not be happier. Five of us artist friends have partnered to form Hungerford 318, a retail space in which we sell our hand created goods. We are all Rochester Artisans – that’s how we met. I do want to hold RA events in the space in the future. It’s only 300 square feet so uses will be limited. Still thinking on this part.

I apologize for posting this on the DAY of the event! I know I’m not alone – holy moly, where does the time go!?

Jean Westcott’s Artful Gardener is such a beautiful store that you really owe it to yourself to stop by, if not today, then anytime during regular business hours. She is a wonderful supporter of local artists and has such a keen eye for showing their work at its best. (These photos represent the artists who sell at the store, I cannot say whether these exact items are there at the moment.)

I thought I knew Kathy Kosel’s work pretty well, from her collaborations with glass artist Tom Zachman.



Collection

They are both friends of mine and I’ve seen their booth at plenty of art & craft shows. And I’ve been all over her Kathleen Kosel Steelworks website. Or so I thought.

These pieces should not surprise me, I know Kathy is a retired art teacher and has many skills and talents. Aren’t these amazing?

Kathy Not Welding

I have an art education background with a Masters in Art Education K-12.

Art History is a passion of mine, and I am always looking for inspiration from other cultures to inspire my metal works. I choose to focus on outdoor art for gardens. Creating both decorative and functional steel pieces is what I enjoy most.

I am currently collaborating with glass artist Tom Zachman and ceramic artist Barb Messina. This co-operative effort has been a stimulating and rewarding experience.

My new motto is “What are you waiting for!”

This has led me to a fun new career as a metal artist. Every day I head to the shop and begin the process
of imagining, then manufacturing my steel structures.

This is my very favorite photo of Kathy - isn't it perfect??

Her work is available at The Artful Gardener. I highly recommend you poke around Kathleen Kosel Steelworks. You can learn about her creative process. And her contact info is on her site – she’s always excited to do custom work!

Buying Local Art Thursday – Sunday, Dec 5 – 8

Square Logo Proud Member

I remember where I was the first time a customer asked me, “Are you local? I’m only buying locally made gifts this year.” This was in 2009, well before these words entered our vocabulary: Buy Local, Eat Local, locavores, Shop Small, Small Business Saturday. That woman opened my mind and I’ve been trying to live that way ever since. I’m not perfect but I try. And I know a lot of you do too.

Our community of artists, Rochester Artisans, has grown from 7 members in 2009, to 692 as of today. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for liking and buying what is our passion to make.

Here’s where you can find some of our members in the days to come of next weekend. There are 17 events listed here so I’m declaring this the High Weekend of Holiday Shopping Local!

Have fun and we thank you!

Patty Zachman, Enamelist

Patty's Process

I met Patty Zachman through her husband, Tom, who was one of the very early joiners of Rochester Artisans. He’s a glass artist, now working with fused glass and has also worked with stained glass. Patty is a calligrapher and she loves paper. A lot. Especially delicate handmade paper with inclusions.

She still works on her calligraphy, but a couple of years ago Patty started working with powdered enamel and copper, turning it into lovely jewelry. I was at Tom & Patty’s house over the summer and asked for a tour of their studios, aka, the basement. Panic ensued but they led me downstairs, showed me lots of stuff and answered skillions of questions. I love studio tours – seeing how other artists live!

IMG_0041

It was then that I learned what a labor intensive process it is to enamel copper. Each layer is it’s own little project – and Patty is as meticulous as they come!

When I asked her to join the artists selling their works at the Fairport Pharmacy gift shop, I noticed she wrote a nice little bit about her process when submitting the paperwork to me. I’ve posted it on our Facebook page and today decided to share it with customers in the store looking at her work. So I made a sign and placed it near her jewelry, as you can see in the top photo. People like to buy from people they know and like. To know Patty is to like her.

Each piece I make has many layers of enamel and color. I start with a piece of copper which I hand saw, drill, file, sand and thoroughly scrub clean of all dirt and oil.

Then I sift a layer of enamel onto the copper, fire it in a kiln at 1200-1500 degrees F. I let it cool and scrub it again. This process is repeated for every layer of enamel. Both sides of the copper are enameled to give the piece stability and allow the wearer to show either side.

Bracelets

Patty is very shy and I’m pretty sure she’s going to kill me when reads that I wrote an entire blog post about her. But I really want to encourage you to see her work in person in the gift shop at Fairport Pharmacy. She doesn’t do shows so this (plus one other store) are the only places to see her work. I would say all of her jewelry can be worn by men and women. The enameled copper pieces are clean, simple shapes and the depth of color is anything but simple.

The name of her business is FirePaint Studio (I confess, I’m not positive if that should be 2 words or 3!) I hope you enjoy her work.
