Students in Studios -- A Visit with Kevin Ruelle

Justice stops by Vermont Faux Vintage Travel Poster Artist Kevin Ruelle's studio to see his process and talk about his influences...

Looking at Kevin Ruelle’s art is experiencing the many landscapes of Vermont through his eyes. Kevin Ruelle had always been one to enjoy art ever since he was a child. It was never not prevalent. Like myself, Kevin was inspired as a child by the work of his elders and the world around him.

Students in Studios - Terry Zigmund


Frog Hollow continues its Students in Studios series. This time Justice visits with Stained Glass Artist Terry Zigmund...

When I asked Terry Zigmund why she did what she did, she hesitated at first but simply answered with “Because it makes me happy, and it makes other people happy.” I couldn't agree more as I watched her solder together her stained glass tree pieces.

Students in Studios -- A Visit with Mark Dabelstein

Recently, Frog Hollow began a new partnership inviting high school interns to visit different Frog Hollow artisan studios and write a blog post about their time. Our intern Justice has just provided us with her first write up, a visit to woodworker Mark Dabelstein's studio in Burlington, VT.

Walking into Mark Dabelstein’s studio, the first thing I noticed was the smell of sawdust and
various wood trinkets resting on shelves and windows.

I have very strong memories of and appreciation for Frog Hollow. I remember when it was a used furniture store called Amber Swenor’s, and you would maneuver through mountains of odd stuff and down trap door stairways.

The following post was written by Sabra Field and is taken from our Summer 2014 Frog Notes. To read past issues of Frog Notes, our digital newsletter, and other Frog Hollow digital publications, Click Here

What a bitter irony: Our collectors should welcome our unique vantage point on the world of visual art whether utilitarian or decorative or both. Instead, they seem to be enchanted by the notion of piracy !

Celebration of Sculpture Tour with Artist Kate Pond




In anticipation of Kate Ponds 1973-2010 retrospective sculpture tour on July 20 Frog Hollow employee Kimberly Musial Datchuk wrote this artist profile for our Spring 2014 Frog Notes...

Equal parts function and elegance, Kate Pond's sculptures enliven their environments in Vermont and across the world. Born in Maine and raised in Montpelier, Pond began working in sculpture in the 1970's. She constructs her pieces out of Corten steel, which rusts and develops a dark, lush patina over the years, and stainless steel, an ideal surface to reflect light from her swirling designs. Pond's works engage passersby, beckoning them to sit, climb, and lay across them. She sets her work apart from other public sculptures by contemplating the space, its relationship to nature, and its place in society. These big-picture questions lead her to innovative, refined, and strong designs that provide the space with both beauty and meaning.
