Visual Appeal

September 11, 2012

Last week when I wrote about how many wonderful friends the Wild Ramp Market has, I did not include everyone. There will be continuing installments about people.  Today I want to tell you about Noelle Horsfield, an artist who has recently returned to the Tri-State area.

She was raised on a small family farm in Ohio near Waterloo. As an only child, stuck far away from friends with only cows and pigs around, Noelle found she loved art. She decided when she was very young that she wanted to be an artist and pursued a fine arts degree at Marshall.

It was there that she met her husband Scott whose career in retail has required them to move, first to northwestern Indiana; then to Bath, Maine; and then to Northhampton, Massachusetts.  Noelle was able to be involved in the artist communities in each place she lived and really enjoyed  the environment offered by those places where artists actually worked in a studio setting. She felt her own creativity enriched by the active efforts around her.

Scott received another promotion and they moved to Ashland.  They found a house in a very pleasant neighborhood, added an addition and renovated the finished basement into her studio space. 

In Massachusetts she began to develop the graphic aspect of the note cards now on sale at the Wild Ramp.

 

But her biggest love is earthenware and she has a number of pieces that are finished

and some that are in process. I really can’t wait to see this bee when it is glazed.

Noelle is building a display for the Market that will hang on the wall behind the proposed check-out counter. I was able to see a few sections of the piece in various stage from soft clay to pre-glazed and I can tell it will be spectacular.

    Oh-my-goodness! Your work is absolutely exquisite! I have to have the bowl with the rabbit on it. Noelle, email me or something with the price if it’s available, or perhaps I can commission some items.
