If it were not for the "artisans" of this world, designers would be up a creek. I can have many great ideas in my head but if there is no one who is trained and talented enough to create them I can't continue to dream & to design. I know there are many talented "artisans that I have not yet met. If you are out there, let me know who you are and what you do. I would like to add you to my "artisan" list & give you a mention in my blog.
Another fine artisan is John Pepples of Bend, OR. He serves as our foreman for Artisan Homes and Design in Bend and does all our stone work in addition to his other duties. He installs tile & is a very good artisan. He accepts outside projects when time permits. You can reach him at 503-932-4891.
