Artists Vincent & Carolyn L Tolpo opened Shawnee Mountain Gallery, Studios, and Pottery in 1981. The historic structure was built in 1904 by a Denver family as a summer home. The Adirondack style was typical of the day.
Shawnee Mountain Gallery offers unique one-of-a-kind art in many media. Visitors are welcome to talk with the artists or visit the pottery and see work in progress. Vincentís popular landscape pottery shows the Contemporary Western terrain and mountains. Natural clay slips made of soil samples indigenous to the region are fired onto the pottery. Carolyn and Vincent also make art pottery, open-stock dinnerware, and functional work. Special orders are welcome. The pottery is oxidation fired 2291 F. The pottery is microwavable, ovenproof, lead-free, and dishwasher safe.
Carolynís designer jewelry features antique beads and semi-precious stones. Her three collections are Heirloom, Classic, and International.
The visiting public enjoys the wildflower gardens featuring abstract / assemblage sculptures by the Tolpos.
Their custom art is found in public, corporate and private collections around the world. Art galleries, consultants, and fine retail shops throughout the United States represent their pottery, jewelry, paintings, prints, fibers, metal, and mixed-media artworks.
