Joan Bazzel

My husband, our Autistic son Zak and I moved to W.N.C. in 1991 and I immediately juried into the Southern Highland Craft Guild in metal….the following year we juried in enamel & mixed media as a partnership and began our WNC Native Plants in Enamel business. I then became the resident enamellist at the John C. Campbell Folk School in 1992….resigned for health reasons in 1998….survived….elected to the SHCG Board of Trustees in 2001….served a full 3 year term….also served on the SHCG Standards and Annual Meeting committees. This year, 2020, marks my 29thyear as a SHCG member and participant in varied guild shows.

I have taught enameling at such venues as; Arrowmont, JCCFS, Earthspeak Arts, demos and private lessons. I have exhibited in various retail galleries throughout WNC. including but not complete; SHCG shops, JCCFS, Bascom Louise in Highlands, Blue Spiral Gallery in Asheville, Grovewood Gallery in Asheville, Van Dyke Jewelry & Fine Crafts in Asheville, Alexander & Lehnert Gallery in Asheville, Twigs and Leaves Gallery in Waynesville and the HCAC.

Creativity is a necessity in my life, and it must be shared to be complete. I believe art should be inclusive and not competitive, so I tend to avoid juried exhibitions, and I’ve never sought an awards competition, although I’ve won a few at the discretion of show jurors.

All of my work is ORIGINAL,mostly ONE of a KIND, and made entirely by myself with expert wood-working support from my husband when needed. Zak used to participate, but now he just hangs out with me in the studio while I provide tasks which fit his own skills.
