About Jewelry Artists

Laurel Lee and Fred Koschetzki

Our journey in art started years ago. Fred grew up in the former home of the renowned "Ash Can School of Art" artist Everett Shinn, the "Bailiwick" and art was introduced to Fred at an early age while my artistic adventure developed during our college years. We both attended the same Universities, Oklahoma State University, Denver University and Southern Illinois University.

After graduation the artists life beckoned. We made functional pottery and jewelry, created sculptures and oil paintings; all the while selling art at craft fairs and art galleries, in this manner keeping our art dream alive.

Today we are both art educators and studio artists. As educators we manage the ceramic arts program at Columbia Greene Community College, Hudson NY and our lifework in art is complimented by a well equipped Woodstock NY jewelry studio enabling us to fabricate art jewelry wearable sculptures.

Our studio gallery is open by appointment and we welcome queries.
