Murkay Creations

Murkay Creations is the collaboration of Sandra Allen and Kevin Wilson, both artists who work primarily with glass. They use two  techniques for working glass. In flameworking they make components and beads from glass rods by melting and shaping the glass with a torch. The other technique is fusing where panels of glass are cut, shaped and melted together in a kiln.  In the past they have focused on creating indoor art like wall hangings and jewelry. Recently they have developed a line of garden art which will be featured for the first time at this year's show.

Peace of Mind Creations

David Card

Inspired by the natural components of wood, Dave Card sees his art as a collaboration with nature and with each of his creations he seeks to reflect the colour and form of the wood in faces and figures you won’t soon forget. David’s wood sculptures also attest to his sardonic sense of humour, and his sensitive view of the human condition. “If you are laughing, crying, thinking, or even a little disturbed, it’s all good! If I have gotten your attention, I have succeeded!” Dave's work is on display throughout the garden season at the nursery.
