Celebrating 14 years of Christmas shows, Roger Filippelli and Lorrene Baum-Davis will be back at Filippelli’s home/studio, on Chamberlain in Placerville.

Filippelli’s collectible wooden cooking and kitchen utensils and Baum-Davis, a highly acclaimed and award-winning jewelry artist and teacher, will show her fine multi-media art jewelry. Paula Joy Welter will also be showing a selection of her handmade greeting cards.

The trio invites all friends and customers to the open house and studio show to celebrate another year to be thankful for.

All festivities will take place Saturday, Dec. 3, Sunday, Dec. 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To go with the art there will be Chrissie Filippelli’s famous vegetarian chili, and Baum Davis’ hot dish surprise, other holiday goodies and hot brandied (or not) spiced apple cider.

For the ears live music will be by Jeff Parker is on guitar on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m and from 3 to 5 p.m. Paula Welter is on the cello.

On Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Parker will play and Chrissie will be singing. From 2 to 5 p.m. Phil Reddin will play the classical guitar.

Roger Filippelli — the spoon man said, ”Being Italian, I love to cook and enjoy fine kitchen tools and gadgets. Inspiration for a new design might come from an antique implement I find and reinvent in wood. Custom orders bring in new ideas a well.”

He graduated from California State University, San Francisco and enjoyed 36 wonderful years teaching art in junior college and various high schools.

He feels lucky to have had the opportunity to interact with young artistic talent and he enjoys a ongong relationship with several former students who are now working artists in their own right.

“I enjoy the process of considering a plank of wood — noting its grain, shape, texture, color and individual personality. One might say an event in the life of a tree can create unique characteristic. So-called ‘blemishes’ often become the highlight of a piece I design.

“I let the wood guide me as to what it wants to become,” he said.

Lorrene Baum-Davis — the clay woman said, ”I began creating work in the crib with crayons on rubber sheets and on the walls … and mud pies in the back yard: I have never stopped creating what I consider art.”

Classes in art studies, professional schools and self-teaching have been a major part of her life.

“I have a great love of the metals and clays, and those two mediums draw me into working with them because of their malleability and their permanence. Glass fusing is my most recent art form and I am setting my original glass designs into pure silver textured rings. Lastly, polymer clay draws me into colors and wild designs.

“The clays, precious metals and polymer enable me to produce organic forms with great textures and colors. When working with the fused glass — I am a constructionist — the crisp geometrical edges jump out of my designs. All three mediums allow me to continue to be a maker of one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art,” she said.

Baum-Davis has won three national jewelry awards this year for her Legends rings.

Lorrene graduated from the celebrated Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco and studied drama and art at San Jose State University.

As owner of New Beginnings Gallery of Jewelry and Fine art in El Dorado Hills for 11 years, she learned how clients liked their wearable art. She has been teaching introductory through advanced polymer clay and metal clay workshops in her Sierra Foothills Studio since 2001. In 2006 she became one of, now, nine master instructors of metal clay (Art Clay Silver) in the United States.
