I want to agitate the viewer. In negotiating different tensions – those that exist between humans and our environment, the sacred and profane – I came to Place is the Place. Don’t ask where the place is; feeling lost and disoriented is integral. The components are thoroughly mapped but free from parameters and open to improvisation. Nothing is static; everything is in motion. The voice is sardonic without being cynical. By providing an audit of the past, present, and future, this body of work encourages alternative avenues for societal conduct while simultaneously illustrating a cautionary tale for future generations.

Tessa Creates explores intimacy, ritual and care through beadwork. I use vintage beads, charms, semi-precious stones and other natural materials to make dynamic, playful and elegant jewelry. Almost everything is one of a kind! IG: @tessa.creates
I am not a baker. I just play one at this market.
November menu TBA!
Once-loved items, interesting finds, handmade jewelry, and spooky candles!
SUSAN STRAUSS VIA KATE ZIBLUK
Prior to making jewelry, Susan Strauss was a social worker and a business owner. She earned a BA in philosophy at Newcomb College and an MSW from Tulane University. While she was a social worker, she also took clay classes in New Orleans, in Boulder, and when she returned to Little Rock in 1994.
In 1997, after working for a few years as a social worker in Little Rock, she quite suddenly opened River Market ArtSpace, promoting the work of almost 100 mostly local artists. The gallery was successful, and she sold it in 2002. At that time, she began making jewelry (mostly beading) and started taking some classes. She is self-taught in metal clay. Her goddaughter Kate Zibluk is representing her in presenting her jewelry in NYC.
