Sage Advice


Can you believe it?  July is already coming and going! 

Although it flew by, I'd say Spring was a tremendous
success, judging by the number of baby birds in our
backyard!  They are a joy to watch as they flip the cut
grass hunting for treasures and pester their parents when
they come up empty handed; wow, they are loud little

Baby Birds aren't the only new thing to Sage this year...

WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE... you can now purchase our
Oregon Digital Glass fused glass gifts in the following
locations:  By The Sea Treasures- Bandon,  Wind Drift
Gallery - Florence, Touchstone Gallery-Yachats, and Unique
Home Accents in Depoe Bay, and coming soon - Wind Drift
Gallery, Newport.  We very much appreciate everyone's
support, as we work to keep jobs local.  Each piece is
produced in our studio, using glass and other raw materials
from Portland, Oregon and other companies in the USA.
Additionally, we Thank Brian, at Gibson Graphics and Peter
at the Cobbler's Bench  for sharing a bit of their expertise
and services in the production of our glass;  this line is
truly Oregon crafted.

MORE GLASS NEWS - In addition to Drop in Fusing Studio Days,
Sage Place welcomes guest instructor Laura Brownfield.  You
have been loving Laura's glass works at Sage and Rogue
Credit Union, now you can learn how she does it!
Vitrograph, Murrini, and Pattern Bars are just a taste of
what you can learn in Laura's workshops.  See for the class lineup, stop in Wed. -
Sat. 11-5 to register, or call

again, turn the classroom into a glistening spectacle, with
Czech Glass beads, pearls, stones, buttons, and more!

**Note, Drop in Studio will not be held this week. 

A SECOND TRUNK SHOW with our new friends Jim and Lydia of
MILL STREET ROCKS is coming this Fall.  Mark your calendars
for  SEPT 23 & 24th.  If you love hand cut cabochons and
gorgeous stone hanks, this is an event you don't want to

JEWELRY WORKSHOPS - Sage has several new classes scheduled
with your favorite instructor, Sherri Carpenter.  We
recently offered Flood Soldering and it was such a success
that we ran it again!  Coming up:  Fold Forming, Chain
Maille, Viking Knit and more with Sherri, through the end of
this year!

GALLERY UPDATES:  Sage represents several of the finest
local artists; watercolors by:  Donna Wright and Kimberly
Wurster, photography by Andy Moe, fused glass by Laura
Brownfield and Robin Ziuchkovski, Kelp Baskets by Catherine
Long Spinner, and jewelry by Sharon Martin, Sherri
Carpenter, and Martin Keller, are just a few of the
wonderful works you will find on display.  We welcome back
photographer, Lois Miller, whose puffin image may be found

Northwest.  Congratulations Lois!

our professional jewelry designing customers.  In small
