Halloween Jack O Lanterns by Edwin Knies – Metal Art for Yards, Porches or Table Top Party Décor

“Metal Jack O Lanterns by Edwin Knies are Back!”

 Is it time to get your “Halloween Boo” on?

Never fear, we got some lovely, creepy Jack O Lanterns ready for you this year…

Yes, we just got these wonderfully spooky Halloween lanterns just a week ago but we are already down to just a handful of the big guys and a limited selection of the Edwin’s new “little” devils, ghosts, ghouls or pumpkins!

Edwin draws a one-of-a-kind design for each Jack O Lantern face,  attach various metal bolts and “hair style” and then hand paints each one.

NOTE: these wonderful lanterns are handcrafted from upcycled metal tanks. Once each tank has been carefully depressurized and cleaned out by Edwin before he starts to work on them.

These Jacko Lanterns make  perfect seasonal gifts when you add mini led “fairy” lights or flickering “flameless” candles!

On his larger signature pieces he carefully cuts out little access hatch on the back so you can place live candles inside if you want.

Each lantern can be adapted for use with simple electric string lights, or just for fun – hidden audio players to broadcast creepy Halloween sound effects!

Since we have so few left, we invite you come by the gallery this weekend or call us today to check out this very limited selection of fun, Halloween lanterns. See for yourself…

“Fun Things to Do in Asheville”

Is this you…

You are on a weekend get-away with the family but your kids are getting bored?

You came to Asheville to check out the Smoky Mountains, visit the Biltmore and maybe get some early Christmas shopping done.

But the kids are driving you a little crazy!

If this sounds like familiar, then you should come by the Mountain Made Gallery this Saturday (11:00AM – 5:00 PM) for one of our (slightly) famous Interactive Art Projects.

This weekend our public art project is entitled “Autumn Art with Leaves – Fun with Hank & Hortense Hedgehog”.

Did you know that the name Hortense is Latin for “she of the garden”? What better way to welcome the Fall than with creating “animals” with fall leaves?

Comments Off on Autumn “Scratch & Dent” Sale

We have gone through our basement store room, searched under all our cabinet “hidey holes” for any “secret” treasures that might be slightly scratched, dented, chipped, or even cracked.

We’ll have all of our “Scratch & Dent” sale items set up on special tables inside the gallery – everything on our tables have been priced to sell – many items are discounted from 50% to 75% off .

We invite you to browse these “lightly damaged” works of art. Many of these are so cool, that we’ve been slapping hands to keep the staff from digging inside the boxes looking for their own treasure!

So come by and take home a treasure of your own!

After all what’s a bit of a scratch?

Hand-Turned Wood Coffee (Mill) Grinders by Bill Wanezek

While we all understand how convenient it is to buy pre-ground coffee, hand blasting your way through your favorite roasted beans – just before brewing – guarantees you the boldest, brightest morning cup you have ever tasted.

Which is why we are so glad that local woodworker Bill Wanezek has brought in several of his handcrafted coffee mills or grinders – depending .

These wonderful, one-of-a-kind grinders make great gifts for the coffee lovers in your family.
