Sheri L. Kerr and Dave Kerr found that the Farmers and Crafts Market allows us to express our appreciation of our Las Cruces environment. This includes the natural beauty surrounding us— the mountains, the desert, the living things, the rocks and minerals, and the warm, friendly people. .

As time has passed for us here, our appreciation of rocks and minerals including copper and silver, has grown immensely. We especially love the blend of earth and sky we find here.. Finding the scenes, colors, and patterns that Nature deposited in slabs of rock is one of our prime motivations for our semi-precious gemstone jewelry. Inspiring scenes in the surrounding area help us create our copper “wall” art, and wearable pieces.

Our style is not traditional We emphasize our environment’s gifts and create impressions that all may share in their own way. Please join us the Market across from COAS Bookstore or view more of our work at www.nmmetalworkart.com

The desert landscape and canyons of the southwest are his favorite subjects. His paintings are strong, unsentimental statements with equal parts heart and technical virtuosity. What takes them to brilliance is the stark contrasts that make the paintings photorealistic in detail. “A stunning collection of well-conceived and well-executed watercolors, a fresh and vibrant view of the region.”— M. Stephen Doherty, American Artist.

Currently he is a signature member the American Watercolor Society and the New Mexico Watercolor Society, with memberships in the National Watercolor Society, and the San Diego Watercolor Society.

I have done arts and crafts from sewing to woodworking beginning in my early 20’s. I began oil painting in 1977 and loved seeing how the canvas came alive.

My love for gourds occurred when I moved to Las Cruces in 2007. First finding buffalo gourds in the desert and then friends, Rose Torres and Latana Bernier, introduced me to the world of gourd art. I knew this was my new canvas.

After some reading I learned most mediums can be applied to gourds. My technique includes extensive carving and wood burning, using dyes, inks, paints, beads, feathers, leather, pine needles, and a variety of other natural products I find on walks in the desert and friends yard.

My work is enjoyed by art loving people around the United States and in other countries.

Each gourd has its own personality as my imagination unfolds and includes my signature and identified by a unique number.

I find joy in creating each one.

Lincoln Farms Pecans

Farmer: Lincoln Michaud

P1030452 Samples
My name is Lincoln.  I am a semi-retired home builder from back east.  I bought  part of a pecan orchard as a building site and built a small home among the trees.  My ‘workaholic’ life style gave way to ‘mañana ‘ and I  started to enjoy photography and working in my orchard , instead of chasing after construction  work.  This lead me to selling my pecans at the Las Cruces and Old Mesilla farmers markets.  These markets are a wonderful way to socialize and I have met some very good people here.
You can find me at the Las Cruces Market most every market day.

From their website…

Robledo Vista Nursery was started by Marcy Scott and Jimmy Zabriskie and has helped supply native and resource efficient plants for the Las Cruces and El Paso area for over 15 years. To keep costs down they decided to open the nursery at their residence but wanted to maintain their privacy so require that patrons call or email to set up an appointment.

We set up most Wednesdays and Saturdays at the Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market. We are on the northwest corner of Main Street and Griggs Avenue with plenty of free public parking nearby. Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays we are in front of the store at the Mountain View Market from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The market is located at the southwest corner of Idaho and El Paseo. Most Sundays from May through October we sell at the Mountain View Market growers market located in the Mountain View Market parking lot.

Marcy Scott is the lead propagator at the nursery and has a special interest in native plants that provide habitat for birds and other wildlife. Formerly a wild bird rehabilitator in her native Ohio, since relocating to the Southwest over a decade ago she has been particularly fascinated with the area’s hummingbirds and their flowering plants. After several years of intensive research, she has written and hopes soon to find a publisher for a book on native hummingbird plants of the Southwest. While in Ohio she became fairly knowledgeable about shrubs and trees that are important to birds and wrote and published a book geared toward bird rehabilitators entitled Songbird Diet Index. Now she is gradually beginning to accumulate a similar bank of knowledge about native plants of the Southwest that provide valuable songbird habitat, and is available for consultations on creating or improving habitat for songbirds, hummingbirds, and other local wildlife. She and Jimmy have planted over 300 trees and shrubs on their property designed to attract birds, and to date they already have recorded 245 different bird species, along with 11 mammals, 19 reptiles and amphibians, and 54 butterflies! When not tending plants in the nursery or pulling weeds in the landscape, she is usually out birding.

Jimmy Zabriskie graduated from Texas Tech University in 1987 with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and a Master of Science in Land Use and Resource Planning. Returning to El Paso, he worked at a local nursery where he promoted and encouraged the sale and use of native and resource-efficient plants and also pursued free-lance residential landscape design. In 1996 he started Zabriskie Landscape Design and Installation and in 2002 moved north of Las Cruces where he still maintains his landscape design business, working in both El Paso and Las Cruces. Some of his larger projects include consultation, installation supervision, and some redesign work for the Helen of Troy corporate headquarters and the design and installation supervision of Redd Rock Center on Redd Road and I-10. He has designed numerous resource-efficient residential landscapes. Three of his residential designs have won awards from the El Paso Water Utilities and two were featured in the book Native Texas Gardens by Sally and Andy Wasowski, published in 1997. One of his Las Cruces designs was a featured yard in the 2006 garden tour. His design philosophy is to create colorful and resource-efficient landscapes with an emphasis on good circulation and drainage, using water harvesting techniques and selecting native and adaptable plants.

Yummy - The Gluten - Free Bakery

Bakery Team: Jacki and Larry Fisher

Phone: 575-382-8511

yummy_1yummy_2yummy_3

Is gluten-free the new, healthy way to be? One local bakery thinks so, and is serving up delicious alternatives to staple baked goods like cookies, muffins and bread.

The Yummy Bakery made its debut at the Las Cruces Downtown Farmers and Crafts market in November 2012, where they have been every Wednesday (in front of the Rio Grande Theater) and Saturday (by the Moose Lodge) since, said owner Jacki Fisher, who runs the bakery with her husband Larry.

Some of the offerings provided by the bakery are four types of bread — white sandwich bread, sourdough, rye-style and sweet Boston brown bread — as well as cinnamon coffee cake; blueberry and English muffins; pizza crust; croutons; chocolate chip, oatmeal, peanut butter, almond spritz and lemon cooler cookies, which are made of a lemon shortbread.

“We also have seasonal cookies, like chocolate pixies, that we sell at Christmas and pumpkin bread and cupcakes we do for the fall. We also have dairy- and gluten free lava cake and brownies that are the best,” Fisher said.

The drool-inducing lineup of bakery favorites is also 100 percent gluten free. Gluten is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and grain, like barley and rye.

Fisher said she uses gluten-free oats and flours, and the bakery where she whips up her goodies, located northeast of Las Cruces in Organ, is also completely gluten-free.

The small, 600-square foot building that houses the bakery was stripped completely by the Fishers. The heating and air conditioning ducts were completely removed and replaced, and brand new equipment — like a refrigerator and pots, pans and cookware — were brought in.

“We redid it so there was no way of having any type of flour in there. It (flour) just sticks to everything. The new equipment has never had any gluten on it, so we don’t have to worry about cross contamination,” Fisher said.

The business was started solely with money from the Fishers’ savings so, Fisher said, the couple didn’t have to worry about paying the bank back if they didn’t make a good run with consumers.

But since its debut, the bakery has been gathering loyal followers.

“I purchased your sourdough bread and made myself a breakfast sandwich with it,” said Jessie Libicer on the bakery’s Facebook page. “It’s delicious! Just the flavor I was hoping for and such a fair price for the size of the loaf. Can’t wait to visit your stand again.”

Sculpted Gold and Silver

Artist Name: Ben Hoffacker

AIR program Dec. 30th, 2013#13 Pendant, 14K Gold with black pearl on pink pearls #14 Band rings in Silver #28 Lg. with 10.5 mm Black Pearl on SS Mesh Choker Owner/Photographer

Born in Pennsylvania farm country in 1950, Ben began work in the Bethlehem steel mills in Harrisburg during and after completing high school. At the end of the ’60s, Ben relocated to northern New Mexico where he began work in foundries and sculpting studios. During this 16 year period,  Ben’s sensitivity to form and design were initiated and developed as well as his abilities to “cast” and finish precious metals and bronze sculpture.

2013-01-15 14.13.46-1-1 Chimney Swifts in flight pendant , bronze Owner/Photographer Owner/Photographer JIB_7657_0041
In 1985, Ben joined the New Mexico State Parks Division as a Park Ranger.  After 11 years in the field, he rose to become the Bureau Chief of Law Enforcement for the division as well as “Chief of Boating Safety” for New Mexico. After 6 years in the state capital, Ben returned to the field as a Marine Enforcement Officer at New Mexico’s largest lake, Elephant Butte. During hours of lake patrol and days spent working on the water along the shores of the “Butte”, Ben’s awareness & appreciation for bird life and the beauty of this desert lake grew. A 16 piece “Birds of the Bosque” collection was conceived & completed  in sterling silver during this period. This collection is currently on display in the Nature Store at the Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.  Ben has also completed a 13 piece “Upland Hunting” series in sterling silver depicting pointing dogs and the birds they pursue. Ben’s interest and appreciation of wildlife is further evidenced by his additional wildlife creations.  A “Birds of the West Coat” collection is currently in the works”.

Ben approaches jewelry making as designing small sculpture.  He aspires to create pieces that are pleasing from any viewpoint or angle.  “Curves in my creations must be smooth without ripples or inconsistent movement. Lines need to work together and mesh in an orderly fashion.  Balance must be maintained”

#81 ring wax nearing completion. Current waxes in progress, March 2014 Owner/Photographer Northern Hawk Owl wax with image, Fall 2012 Silver-Bracelet-22

FROM THE ARTIST:

I utilize the “lost wax casting” method to create jewelry and small sculpture in Gold, Silver and Bronze. By using a small spatula heated with an alcohol lamp, hand files and scrapers, I carve & shape wax into “contemporary, sculptural” rings, bracelets, pendants, earrings and pins.  I also make “representational” pieces such as birds, mammals, reptiles and small figurines. I use precious and semi-precious stones in my designs. The completed wax designs are invested in flasks and burned out at 1600 degrees. The hot, empty flask is then filled with molten gold, silver or bronze using “vacuum casting”.  I then finish the metal pieces with hand files, a flexible-shaft hand piece and two wheel buffer.

Mel Stone was born in northern Minnesota, eventually earned a PhD in economics and taught at the university level for a short time. The gas crisis of the 70s–and its bad coverage in the news– lead to a career as a TV reporter/photographer.

More than 25 years as a TV news photographer may have helped hone my ‘eye.’

Easing into retirement, I bought my first digital camera, archival printer and was invited to join an art co-op.

The cold weather in the north lead to retirement in Las Cruces; and the experience with the art coop lead me to try the Farmers and Craft Market and to open an art gallery on Mesquite Street in Las Cruces.

After years working in finance, project management and software development, I wanted to work with something more tangible. I took courses at the Connecticut School of Woodworking, and got enormous help from many members of the Woodworkers Guild of Rhode Island. Finally, I took an intensive series of courses at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine. I’m so grateful to everyone involved for their help.

I started my shop in Las Cruces, NM in 2009. I create craft items and fine furniture. Since I value green practices, my workshop is powered entirely by solar energy. Reclaimed materials are often used, and I always emphasize environmentally-friendly materials and finishes.

Zia Creations

Woodworker Name: David

Website: Zia Creations

My name is David and at a young age I learned the value of hard work and conservation. I spent over 30 years in the construction trade as both a carpenter and handyman. This work was tangible, hands-on and physically demanding. When I moved to New Mexico in 2010, I started Zia Creations in an effort to enjoy what I was creating without experiencing the toll it was taking on my body.

I make all of my products by hand. Wood is still the main medium with which I work, and most of the crafts I produce are individually cut using a scroll saw. No piece of wood is wasted. Scraps are used to create other items and the remaining pieces are used to heat my work shop.

I also make survival gear products using 550-paracord cord. Paracord is a durable and versatile material that can be fashioned into bracelets, key chains, lanyards, necklaces, dog collars and leashes, etc. When necessary, this cord can be unraveled and used when rope is needed for various purposes. It is both fashionable and functional.
