Methow Valley Goods, the valley’s one-stop-shop for all things local, features the work of over eighty artists from the Methow Valley and Okanogan County. Store manager, Lindsey Bryson, sat down with one of those artists, Chris Duke of Dragonfish Arts, to learn more about the artist and her process.
Duke, one of Methow Valley Goods’ best-selling artists, has spent over 40 years honing her artistic talents. A jewelry and metal design major and in college, Duke got interested in glass when a spike in metal prices made work in that medium too expensive.
When most folks think of glass artists, they think of glass blowing, but Duke uses a lesser-known technique in which glass is fused in a kiln – a process known as warm glass. As Dragonfish Arts, Chris creates a diverse product line including decorative plates, bright, eye-catching yard art, and a line of jewelry. Her best-selling product at Methow Valley Goods are her colorful soap dishes that come with fun mix and match inserts and make a great gift for any occasion.
You can find a wide range of Dragonfish Arts products at Methow Valley Goods on the TwispWorks campus. Open Monday through Saturday, 11am-4pm.
