Meet the Makers

Ahh, art! The following pages introduce you to talented local artists making their mark here in Bend. A father-son duo uses a traditional glass-making technique to create one-of-a-kind blown glass to beautifully adorn your home. A sculptor, inspired by a child’s serious medical condition, creates a sculpture as a tribute to her and her family. A talented chef creates patisseries and oh-so-good treats in her French bakery downtown.

Ever wonder what a typical day in the life of an artist is like? We spent time with artist Douglas Robertson, who shared his daily routine. We also give you a look inside an artist’s home, and how she and her husband tastefully designed it for their Pacific Northwest art collection. And finally, we spotlight locally-made items for guilt-free shopping in this issue’s Local’s Choice.
