2014 Artisans’ Tent Application

In 2007, the Lexington Farmers’ Market was pleased to provide tent space for local artisans.  Each week four artisans are invited to share two tents to display their work and provide items for sale.  The selection includes a variety of work, from jewelry and ceramics to fiber-arts and hand-crafted furniture.

We invite you to stop by the market and view the work of these creative and talented individuals.

 


Michal Adar-Orgad

Michal Adar-Orgad: pottery studio and a fabric workshop.

I love simple basic designs that are, at the same time, colorful and sophisticated. Things you can touch and feel without fearing you’ll break or ruin them. Pieces that are dynamic with uneven shapes, beautiful items that will be a great addition to your home and will make you feel happy.

My “looshi” line includes: library bags, totes and Yoga mat bags, are hand made with love and inspiration from my daughter, Alma, whom I call “looshi”. All designs are unique and one of a kind.

I both design and build the furniture, in my shop in Portsmouth New Hampshire. My work is clean of line and well proportioned. I offer my line in the smaller furniture sizes, and custom furniture at very affordable prices. I also commission custom furniture in the Modern Style.

I build using locally available solid wood because I am comfortable with those woods, and the way they are harvested. These are woods like Cherry, Maple, Ash, Walnut, and Oak. I hand select these woods for beauty, and quality then use them in building furniture that will last several lifetimes.
