Roger Kipp has been making Christmas tree decorations and holiday ornaments. Roger will have these on display throughout the upcoming holiday season!
Mark Seppala has been busy making felt Christmas trees! "These Christmas trees were inspired years ago by the sets in the animated feature 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.' I love the overall look of the puppets and the set designs. A year after the first time the film was shown on tv, I got to go to New York and actually see some of the puppets and a few sets. I was hooked. Years later I began designing my own trees similar to the ones in the show. Mine are a bit more elaborate and much sturdier than the ones in the show. I first designed them with a styrofoam base and green foam. A few years later I decided to add my own flair to them and on top of the foam I add colored felt, which gave the trees more support and much sturdier. They are now available at various prices in my studio, Studio at Gallery on First. Each one is one of a kind with different ornaments on each one."
