Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Dirtroad Team - Glass Paradox and Montezumamudd

Please welcome out new team member Amy Rouse from Glass Paradox.  Amy lives in Maine and paints on glass.  She has been painting for 20 years, starting out at the kitchen table like most of us.  Each piece is hand painted by her and she paints the entire piece.  Her work not only can be found on Etsy but in galleries, boutique and small shops throughout the  United States.

Next stop is over at Montezumamudd. Phyllis (our leader) comes from Colorado, and makes some amazing pottery. Each piece is hand thrown by her and becomes a functional piece of art. From pots to mugs and everything in between. Her sister Connie from Life Shades does the drawings for her decals that she uses. Phyllis uses some beautiful glazes on her pieces and you will enjoy them for years.
