terry m sharp

Terry Sharp moved to Ojai 12 years ago and got himself a wood lathe. Ever since then he has been making wooden bowls. He only uses wood from trees that have already fallen or had to be cut down, giving his pieces a beautifully rustic look. Once he has secured wood from a community member or a tree cutting service, he repays them with bowls from the wood they gave him-a remembrance of the lost tree.

Karen Payton

Karen Payton has a background rooted in the apparel industry but it’s her love for the hippie movement that inspires her work. Her fabric creations have been displayed in galleries, national competitions, magazines and on t-shirts at every Grateful Dead concert! With the spirit of the sixties and a degree in textiles, she spent the last 30 years crafting a unique style of using fabric to create art. May the peace within me sparkle and shine through the art I share with you.

Little Muse Designs

Anthe Wosczyna of Little Muse Designs creates intricate bead woven jewelry which
depicts the mandala, the Sanskrit word for circle, community and connection.
Anthe's enduring interest in intricacy has evolved into individually handweaving small glass seed beads into richly diversified designs in a multitude of colors. She is self-taught and creates her original designs with gemstones and fine metals.
Each piece is handcrafted in her studio at the foot of the mountains in Sierra Madre, a
beautiful area which is the source of inspiration for her designs.

Imagination Depot

Handcrafted, old-fashioned wood and soft toys made with loving care and attention to detail like grandma and grandpa used to make. The wooden toys-Trains, Planes, Cars, Arks, etc require only imagination to play with. They are constructed of wood (no metal or plastic is used). The soft Rabbits, Cats, Teddy Bears, Mice, etc are made from washable fabrics, stuffed with polyester fiberfill and have hand- embroidered faces just waiting to be hugged. Our toys appeal to kids of all ages from 0 to 100 and are affordable for all to explore their imagination.

Toys are still made in America! We pride ourselves in being one of the few.
Imagination Depot is local, right here in Thousand Oaks. Not something that’s
made 1,000’s of miles away. We handcraft a wide range of toys which follow
American standards for toy safety. There is still a need for children to use their
imagination, we believe in time-tested toys for hands-on learning and exploration.

moonlight mikata

Sarah Kei of moonlight mikata creates carefully crafted “mingei” inspired ceramic pieces infused with a whimsical soul. She was born in Japan, and raised cross culturally between Japan and America, which has largely informed the direction of her work.

Clean lines, feminine forms, with a splash of whimsy. “Moonlight” to her is a representation of one’s innermost self, and “mikata” is a Japanese word for “a friend who’s on your side” or “a different perspective”, depending on the pronunciation.

She now lives and creates in the Ojai Valley, a.k.a. the Valley of the moon, where her inspiration shines big and bright.
