Art in Bloom


The spare and simple blossoms of spring pair perfectly with curvaceous vases by ceramic artist Ashtonn Means. Inspired by female figures, Middle Eastern dance, and henna designs, these dramatic vessels burst with life and a bit of whimsy. Filled with May flowers, we think they’d make lovely gifts for Mother’s Day. To purchase, go to or visit the gift gallery at Western Colorado Center for the Arts. 

Walk lightly in the Spring; Mother Earth is pregnant.

— Native American proverb
