Personal Tours - Talk to Our Artists

I Want You To Enjoy Your Home As Much As I Enjoy Mine

I want you to use your home as a retreat from everyday life. I want you to always feel good about your home. I want you to look forward to the time each day when you return home and enter the front door of your home. I want you to have a beautiful home. I want you to enjoy your home as much as I enjoy mine.

This can be best achieved by art. Art on the walls, art on the floor, art on tables. Art on stands. Art everywhere!

Phyllis Erwin's Ceramic Art Recognized Internationally

"As keeper of Decorative Art in the Groninger Museum I was - and I still am - a professional collector. That means my approach is different from that of the private collector, who decides more emotional on acquisitions and acts according to his/her own fascinations. But sometimes an object smashes my intellectual distance and then it's love at first sight !"
