Art and craft merge at Medieval Market

Corry Lunn, a long-time former Horsefly resident is returning to the lakecity this weekend to participate in the annual Medieval Market

Corry Lunn, a long-time former Horsefly resident who now lives at Union Bay on Vancouver Island, is returning to the lakecity for a visit this weekend to participate in the annual Medieval Market this Saturday and Sunday at Columneetza secondary.

Lunn is well known around B.C. for her beautiful clay sculptures and copper enamel hangings which are exhibited in her open studio in Union Bay.

Her work incorporates driftwood, slumped glass, and found treasures, within her clay and enamel wall pieces. The clay elements in her sculptures are burnished with very smooth stones and then pit fired.

“When they come out of the pit fire I clean them up with clear Kiwi shoe polish. This also protects and adds to the warm luster of the finish,” Lunn says in her introduction.

“Of all the work I do this technique is the one that gets held the most. As each piece dries it is burnished with very smooth stones, usually three times each over the course of the drying process. It’s put together like a puzzle and I try to make the cut lines have a rhythm of their own.”

The sculptures are mounted on beach wood rough from the elements and a contrast from the smooth coolness of the clay, she says.

Many other artists, crafts people and sculptors will be at the market including metal and clay sculptor Michele Tenning.

Among the creative woodworkers and sculptors are Scott Zimonick, Columneetza wood shop students, Ron Clemmons, and Darrel Nygaard.

Rich Kenny will be selling handmade guitars, dobros, and dulcimers.

Glass artist Donna Williams will be there along with ceramic artist Lynn Moore, potters Joan Beck, Bev Pemberton, Judy Prevost, Ann Rusch and other members of the Cariboo Potter’s Guild.

Weavers and fine wool crafters include Eva Hoelzler, Inge Wiggins, and Karen Dayton.

Jewelry artists Lynn Capling, Sharon Vignjevic, Fern Pryndik, Pharis Romero, Sierra Sivek, and blacksmithing artist Lynn Bonner will all be there with their work.

Shirley Vincenzi, Dianne Marlow, LeRae Haynes, Barbara Jaggernath, and LeRae and Becky will be there with their hand-made clothing and accessories for children. Michael Cheung returns with his fabulous hat collection.

Authors Bonita Forsyth and Sage Birchwater will be there with their books, along with wilderness photographer Chris Harris.

The many other vendors include Norma Jones with Jones 2 U; Brandi Ranger with her herbal products; paper crafter Crystal Dawn Langton; artist Kendra Dixon; Kathy Bonner with paintings, leathercraft, and soft toys; and Joanne and Chendi with wildrose lathers and wood carvings.

Lynne Archer will be there with recycled leather items for home decor.

Astrologer Martin Comtois will also be there offering readings and Camerson Self will be there with Shiatsu massage. There will also be vendors there with a variety of home-grown vegetables, special coffees, fudge, jams, preserves and other treats. There will also be lots of live entertainment to keep people entertained while they shop. Magical Josiah, a teen magician from Nemiah, will present three shows each day at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. to keep both children and adults entertained. Saturday the musical lineup begins at 10 a.m. with a performance by Christine Constabel with Katelyn and Miguel Zhou.

Entertainment continues through the day with Sam Tudor at 10:30 a.m.; Jenny’s Jam 11 a.m.; the Youth Fiddlers at noon; Quintet Plus at 1 p.m.; Willow at 1:30 p.m.; Oren Barter at 2 p.m.; and the Northern Lights Harp Group at 3 p.m.
