Welcome to The Phoenix Files!

This blog is a collection of papers and how-to articles I have written over the past 25+ years, as well as my travel journals and announcements.  Scholarly works from "The Library" on my old website, are labeled here as "Historica Tractatu." 

My travels have had heavy influence on my work and are the 'back story' behind many of my designs. Some of my older journals are revised from the original, and most link to photo albums on Facebook.  

Beppa Studio Fall Sale

Friday, September 23rd4:00-8:00pm
Saturday, September 24th: 10:00am-4:00pm

A shared love of Ethnic and American folk art has been the constant thread in Rebecca and Gretchen's relationship as well as business, and they have actively acquired pieces throughout the years, which they sell at 3 events a year. This collection has provided a constant source of inspiration and a reminder of the timelessness that a thoughtfully conceived design can bring. Beppa products work to avoid current trends and define a unique aesthetic through natural fibers, quality craftsmanship, innovative color, and classic design.

This year, Heather Daveno, artisan hatmaker from August Phoenix Hats, joins the mix with a selection of woolen caps, inspired by a crossroads of time periods and cultures, and individually handcrafted from reclaimed textiles.

Additional items available for your shopping adventure will include:

  • Beppa - clothing, assessors, vintage buttons, vintage kimono, kimono remnants, and miscellaneous
  • Sylvia Luppert - polymer jewelry
  • Barbara Osborne - pine needle baskets
  • Laurette Chasse - repurposed ceramic sculpture
See you there!
