AS A CHILD, Cindi loved to sit in the shade of a Sycamore Tree on her grandfather's farm in Virginia. As an adult, she imagines herself there, dreaming up new ideas and creations for you. She's dreamed up Pottery & Glass Home Decor & Jewelry, as well as, handmade Jewelry Supplies. Cindi's son, Justin, learned from his parents that most anything could be used to create art. Then, as an adult, he discovered working with Glass! Now, he is part of the 'In the Shade of the Sycamore Tree' story. All items in this shop are created by Justin or Cindi (sometimes both!) and most are One-of-a-Kind. Check back often - We are often adding new items.
INSPIRED BY A WALK IN THE WOODS, reading fantasy stories, looking at a beautiful sunset, our creations convey our fascination of nature, it's colors, textures, and forms, as well as, it creatures. Some of our creations are also inspired by world cultures and recent trips to exotic places. They share a studio, where Justin works on a torch to create Glass Pendants, Fantasy Insects and Creatures, Memorial Cremation Pendants, and other other fun glass ideas that captures his imagination. Cindi works in Clay, Fused Glass and Lampworked Glass on the torch. They often collaborate on one-of-a-kind mixed media sculptures, Window installations and Shadowbox scenes.
