Lamplighter Jewelry is a handcrafted jewelry label by Richmond based designer Emma Lalumandier. Many designs are spun off natural elements or inspired by wood.
“Lamplighter’s bullet line began with my husband John teaching me to shoot. I gathered the brass from my first shoot and John came up with the initial design (hammered disc bullet earrings). Since then, I’ve added many new bullet designs, always with three elements in mind: to reflect a woman’s femininity, beauty and strength.
I’m really proud to be a completely self taught jeweler who has turned a love for making unique jewelry into a family business.”
About the Exhibition | Lost and Found
I lose myself into this work whenever possible to more often enjoy the thrill of rediscovering it. Through this “lost and found” art making process, I build on my own artistic legacy with the artifacts I find from the past. Many of the works presented in this exhibition focus on the use of “found objects,” Rusted metal, roofing material, old books and magazines, industrial diagrams, and scraps of weathered wood. These discarded elements found along streets, freeways, attics, or dumpsters, draw my attention, and inspire me to incorporate them into new contexts.
On a cosmic scale, the end of an object is as tragic as the death of a human body. Likewise, if that object is reiterated in the work of an artist, it is no less remarkable than the rise of Lazarus in the hand of God. In the “Objet Trouve” – or, found object – one can experience both the intimations of death and the reverberations of life. Through the Cambrian morphology, and metallic hues formed from the inherent suggestions of these found objects, I rely on text taken from old books to augment the contemplative foreboding of the textured forms and somber hues.

Born in Philadelphia Hamilton Glass’s career as an artist stems from his architecture and design background. Despite working in the architecture field for 7 years, his passion for public art pushed him to start a career as an artist. Public art has always been a big influence and inspiration to Hamilton, because of its power to influence and inspire the surrounding community. With every opportunity he receives to create public art he try’s to convey a message, which connects his work to the community in which the piece lives.
What makes his work unique is the use of architectural elements with bright colors and sharp lines. The bright colors and unpredictable lines and shapes are used to convey a certain energy and movement in each piece.
Fun, snarky greeting cards and colorful stationery created by Joe & Coleen!
Coleen and I started our little greeting card making empire, PaperFreckles in 2009 initially creating custom invitations for brides and logos for small businesses. What we eventually discovered was we did NOT enjoy creating custom invitations for brides and logos for small businesses. What we DID enjoy was laughter and silliness. So, seeing as how I’ve never fully matured into a functional adult* we thought we’d use my sarcastic, mid-brow** humor and illustrations and Coleen’s eye for detail to create snarky, funny greeting cards to poke fun at all of life’s little complexities. Our inspiration comes from the “way too serious” world around us, our silly day-to-day banter and sometimes way, way too much coffee.

My painting style is very freeform. Some say I Paint On A Whim. When an idea strikes me I try to paint immediately, sometimes for an entire day, and I usually finish a painting in one sitting. I hardly plan or sketch anything, making it all up as the mood strikes me, and playing off of each new element as it develops. At the end of the day I like to see a piece that is whimsical and happy and not too worried about the way things are 'supposed' to be.
Shaylen Amanda Broughton (SAB) is a native of Richmond, Virginia. Broughton received her B.F.A. in Interior Design, from The Savannah College of Art and Design, in the year 2011. She spent two years working as Hospitality Designer for a large, Richmond-based design firm. While working there, she still followed her bliss, continuing her hand at painted canvases. Her work ranges from expressionist landscapes to abstract and out of this world. She explores the depths of human awareness by delving deep into black bottom oceans; ascending curiously towards infinite stars; and ultimately discovering the divinity and infinity within it all. Particularly, she works to convey the relationships between emotional memory [in which we find significance], and the physical world [in which we find presence]. Through bold, colorful expression, she captures the spiritual experience that is eagerly evoked from sense of Place.
Designs by Mary Wolf, a certified PMC (precious metal clay) artisan specializing in one of a kind, original, hand made silver jewelry.
“My parallel passion is making vintage inspired jewelry. I love to experiment with different designs and materials every time I sit down at my work table. I am inspired by many things...nature, the sea, color, texture, the shape of a branch, the sunset, stories from the past, love, and literature, just to name a few. I also do custom work if you have a design in mind.”
Mary Nell Jackson has been creating art since childhood. She found great joy in playing with pops of color and straying from the boundaries of typical or conservative art. Since graduating from the University of Georgia with her Bachelor of Fine Arts, she has continued to experiment with various techniques and subject matter, focusing mainly on painting and making maiolica pottery. Mary Nell's eye for color, texture, and array of media brings a distinct energy to her work, often described as "refreshing".
She hopes that her abstract expressionist work energizes viewers and inspires their curiosity. Mary Nell Jackson ~Artist ~ Richmond, Virginia
