Sarah Machtey is River Artisans’ Artist of the Month for August

sarahM_smSarah draws inspiration from nature primarily, also from the steampunk movement and from her grandparents’ world of scale miniatures. Many pieces evolve from items she designs for herself when unable to find what she wants, or from the behavior of materials during creation of something else. She uses a variety of media including natural and polymer clays, fiber, and aluminum cans and tabs. Her pieces currently available at River Artisans include crocheted pouch necklaces and super-soft scarves. Sarah welcomes commissions for custom items. She sells through and locally at Sherwin Art Glass in Bellows Falls, as well as River Artisans. She will be demonstrating aluminum can/tab upcycling at the annual Steampunk Festival in Springfield, VT which runs September 23-25 this year. More of her work can be seen at
