The Copper Shop Gallery Welcomes Roycroft Master Artisan in Fabric/Fiber
We fell in love with Karen Hull Sienk’s ‘felties’ and repurposed wool gloves at the Roycrofters-At-Large Association’s Winter Show in December, and were so glad she agreed to sell her wonderful creations with us in the Gallery.
Sienk was granted Roycroft Master Artisan status in May 2019, but she has been working with fabric and fiber for over 20 years. She has won various awards at art shows, and has even had her quilts featured in quilting magazines!
Karen Hull Sienk’s mittens are constructed of repurposed boiled wool sweaters, feature polar fleece on the inside, and are accented with a unique button. Sienk’s ‘felties’ were also a hit, and bring so much personality to the Gallery.
To make some of Sienk’s works your own, visit us daily: 7 days a week, 10am-5pm.
New to the Gallery: Roycroft China
We have just recently acquired a large selection of Roycroft China from the Roycroft Inn.
Formerly produced by Buffalo China in Buffalo, NY. The current selections are imported and printed in Rochester, NY but have been constructed to match the previous dinnerware almost identically.

Currently in the Chur Gallery: LeAnne Marquis
LeAnne Marquis has her BFA in Sculpture & Painting from the University of Hartford Art School in Hartford, Connecticut and has spent the past 12 years developing her ten-step ‘fire painting’ process.
Marquis has a love of color and shape and is always in anticipation of surprise when firing each piece, as different colors emerge each time and no two pieces are identical. She does not use any patinas, but searches each fire painted sheet of copper for shapes and designs before cutting out shapes for her jewelry. Often, you will find semi-precious gemstones in her works which are all set in fine silver to compliment the colors found in the fired copper.
A multi-talented Artist, Marquis implements hot and cold metalsmithing techniques such as soldering, bezel setting, riveting, wire wrapping, forging and fusing.
Join us for an exhibition opening on Saturday, February 8th from 11am – 2pm. The opening reception will feature complimentary refreshments and hors d’oeuvres and an Artist meet and greet.
The exhibition will be on display in the upstairs loft of the Roycroft Power House (Visitor Center) from Saturday, February 8th until Monday, April 6th and can be viewed daily, 7 days a week from 10am-5pm.
