Monica L. Marshall, a native of King, has recently found her love for turning lifeless, gray clay into something to be marveled and functional at the same time. She always had the motive to throw pottery, but in August 2010 she decided to turn that motive into motion. Marshall enjoys sharing her craft with others by giving pottery lessons and molding one of a kind creations through commission. Marshall is the proud artist of Sunrise Bungalow Pottery in King and has been featured in the Foothills Times Magazine.
Monty Stevens, a native of Westfield, is enthusiastic about photography and loves to see the world through his viewfinder. His interests vary from sunrises and sunsets to nature, cars, landscapes and portraits. Stevens also provides custom framing. Visit his website at www.montystevensphotographysmugmug.com for a sampling of his work. Monty Stevens Photography is being featured in the January/February 2013 issue of Yadkin Valley Living Magazine.
