Through Chic Exces, I learned about Clay Artisan Kim Lugar. Kim has been creating art with clay for over 30 years. Residing not far from me in Scappoose, Oregon Kim ships orders to customers throughout the country, and internationally. I find such satisfaction in knowing that her designs, have helped to raise money for numerous charities including breast cancer research, CASA, City of Hope, Charity USA, the Komen Foundation and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital ( which my daughter visits every couple of months for her condition).
Kim’s timeless diversity items are among her most popular, but it is hard for her customers to choose from among over 400 (and counting) items. Often dreaming up new designs in her sleep, she is never short of ideas and the only limit to her infinite creativity and boundless energy is the number of hours in a day.
You can work directly with the Kim, to create an order tailored for your location and clientele. Take a look around the site and visit the gallery to get an idea of the amazing selection of flowers, seasonal, and inspirational pins, ornaments, earrings, and necklaces.**
I was sent a adorable dog and cat lapel pin! It’s simply adorable and I love how she used such fine detail. I enjoyed browsing through her galleries of flowers, Inspirational, Seasonal, Rainy Day, Diversity, Snow, and Vineyard categories. Since we both live in Oregon, I’m hoping to catch her at a show or two. I very much so appreciate all that she is doing and enjoy how each of her pieces are carefully handcrafted with love.
