Ceramic vessels were among the first manufactured objects to fulfull a need. Functional, ceremonial, or decorational, the history of pottery is rife with examples of human ingenuity and the ability to effectively overcome the problems of everday life in our different envireoments while simultanously managing to express how we feel about those lives and what they mean through artist expression. At Multitudes Gallery, you are sure to find what you like in pottery. We have been fortunate enough to share our space with Betty Wassmer and her Fishbone Studio. The wonderful creation of art pottery is happening daily, right there in our gallery, as Betty creates; building, painting and firing all of her pottery treasures.

WINDCHIMES
photoMUSIC OF THE SPHERES

Music of the Spheres are our most popular windchimes. The choral collection allows you to create your own ensemble using many different chimes or simply choose one chime to begin with.
Some of the more familiar tunings are:
The Pentatonic: The major Pentatonic scale is the most widely used melodic scale in the world, dating from ancient Greece. Its pattern is familiar as the black notes of the piano keyboard. The chime contains all the notes to "Amazing Grace" as well as "The Eyes of Texas".
The Quartal: A musical palindrome, the Quartal scale is based on intervals of fourths and fifths. Its smooth and serene sound captivated American composers, notably Aaron Copland and Paul Hindemith, in the early twentieth century.
The Chinese: The Chinese, an inversion of the Pentatonic, is the lightest and sweetest of our scales, sure to evoke a sense of happiness. Its sweetness best complements the more serious Japanese and Balinese.
The Mongolian: The Mongolian scale, a livelier version of the Chinese, is reminiscent of church and temple bells. The major pentatonic scale in root position in the key of A, it harmonizes nicely with the Aquarian. Genghis Khan conquered an empire unmatched in size, yet never heard chimes as lovely as these.
The Nashville: The Nashville encompasses the complexities of the major seventh and ninth intervals of the pedal steel guitar. It evokes the serenity of a peaceful Highland Rim sunset.
The Hawaiian: The Hawaiian scale is Polynesian in flavor, reminiscent of a tangy sweet & sour sauce and tropical island breezes. It combines the best of major and minor pentatonic scales.
The Balinese: The Balinese scale recreates the magical strains of the Indonesian gamelon, at once joyous and plaintive.
The Japanese: The distinctive tones of the Japanese scale are at once deeply soothing and provocative. Its drama complements the more light-hearted Chinese and Balinese.
The Whole Tone: Claude Debussy, inspired by Balinese music at the 1896 Paris Exposition, began composing with this atonal scale, used for example in his piece "La Mer". Later, television's original Star Trek used it in the "beaming up" sequences. TV and film scores frequently feature it for underwater scenes, dream and "flashback" sequences.

It is clear to see and hear the amount of work and respect for product that goes into these incredible windchimes. Each of them is signed by the artist and comes with a 15 year warranty!

MULTIFARIOUS
photoMARY FRANCES

Merriam-Webster defines multifarious as "having or occurring in great variety : diverse". There are objects of art in Multitudes Gallery that just don't conform to the previously highlighted categories. Distinctive art is our specialty and, while the title of this category describes the essence of all our offerings, we want to make sure the scope of art was well represented. Among the category "multifarious", are internationally know artists such as Mary Frances, with her fabulous, hand-beaded purses and clutch bags. Each of these is an individual miracle of craftsmanship, all made in limited editions and offered here, in Blue Ridge, only at Multitudes Gallery.

photoKALALOU

The gallery is smathered with the most intriguingly beautiful flower arrangements made by Kalalou. Their size, color, construction and versatility are truly awe inspiring. Included in this category are the most fascinating, detailed little boxes and decorative birds with a steampunk essence that are created by Jim and Tory, who make our Mullanium jewelry line. The father and son team of Nathaniel and Theodore Nienow, from Minnesota, hand-craft stunning flower arrangements from fine wood. These wall and table accents are a rare find as an affordable, yet timeless and elegant gift.
