ARTISTS & CRAFTSMEN AT THE MARKET:
BRFM is a food-focused Market. We do not offer vendor booth space for non-food items. However, these two long-time local vendors create handmade food-related pieces that we feel merit exceptions.
Passion for Pottery
While majoring in journalism at IU, Sandy Finney minored in ceramics. In 2001 she opted out of the “rat race” to pursue her passion full time as Hole Pottery. Her studio is above her garage and she has an electric kiln for bisque firing and a gas kiln for glaze firing. She also teaches at the Art Center and fires the kilns there.
Stoneware is fired to such a high heat that clay and glaze become one entity and can be used for cooking and put in the dishwasher. It can be preheated or chilled to keep your food at the right temperature. That makes it perfect for the plates, bowls, serveware, mugs, and other food-related pieces Sandi creates. Find out more at her website here.
From spoons and spatulas to mugs, rolling pins, and gorgeous cutting boards, everything at Dickinson Custom Woodworking is crafted carefully by hand from local hardwoods and finished with food-grade organic boiled linseed oil. They are not only safe for use in your kitchen, they are also beautiful works of art.
The husband-and-wife team of Aaron and Kiyomi Dickinson started their family business in their garage in 1990, making custom furniture. The kitchenware started in 2008 as a way to make use of the scrap wood. Visit their website here, and their Facebook page here, to learn more about their unique family business and incredible products.
