Yummy Mud Puddle at ArtWalk
With all the dogs that live in Boone, there must be a lot of leashes.
ArtWalk is offering a way to keep leashes organized while paying homage to your favorite pup, courtesy of John D. Richards of Yummy Mudd Puddle, based in Burnsville.
Richards creates hand-cast plaster dog plaques representing just about every popular breed. The plaques feature a handy hook, so owners can conveniently stow their dog’s items.
ArtWalk features Richards’ one-of-a-kind leash holders on its main floor, ideal for pooches from Chihuahuas to Great Danes and everything in between. Richards even offers a cat-style plaque for outdoorsy felines.
Apart from functional pieces, Richards also creates sculptures out of recycled materials. For more information on Richards and his work, visit http://www.yummymudpuddle.com.
Jennifer Scott Jewelry
Jennifer Scott of Greensboro joined ArtWalk in spring of 2012.
