Summer at The Mouse House

 One of Susan's stain-glass fiber pieces.  More images can be found on her website.

The summer season has arrived at The Mouse House.  Historically this tends to be a slower time for custom framing and walk-in business.  Susan has been taking advantage of this slow period by creating more of her stain-glass fiber work which is locally available  here at The Mouse House and Ellen Taylor Interiors.  She is also teaching this and next week in Goose Creek, SC for the gifted and talented high school art students in Berkeley County.  She is making the long commute up and down I-26 Monday through  Thursday and will be at The Mouse House on Friday.  I am also able to attempt the impossible task of cleaning the downstairs gallery.

We are continuing the transformation of Mouse House into a gallery showcasing Susan's artwork, a nice selection of beveled mirrors and a few original oil paintings by Stephen Chesley.  New storage space created when I downsized the antique print collection now shows Susan amazing art quilts and other original work.

We still have a large selection of 19TH century antiquarian decorative art engravings by Owen Jones, Racinet, and others,  as well as a few really nice larger antique botanicals and other antique prints.  Contemporary prints include larger Audubon birds and other miscellaneous prints.  All of these can be customed framed if you allow Susan to do her thing with the matting and frame selection.  Come in and visit.
