About Us

About Us

Welcome to the primary online venue of Baerreis.  Designing and making is what we do… We are a family of individual artisans, working in different media.. independent artists who happen to be related.


We make what we sell.. And we sell what we make.   Our life is centered around our work. We have exhibited in galleries, fine juried art shows and markets around the South West and South East for many years – as well as online since the mid 90’s.  We also sell our work in our co-operative studio gallery, Gallery 26 in Murphy, NC – located in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, the foothills of the Smokies.


We design and create each piece one at a time – You will find pieces in different artistic media including but not limited to wood, gemstones, glass, clay, papier mache’, copper, bronze and silver… We write, do art photography, paint, sculpt, and do graphic design. We all love music and one of us makes exceptional original music..

Our work is original, and carries our signature. Our designs remain the intellectual property of the maker.

When you purchase an item from us, you can rest assured that it was made in its entirety by our hands, one piece at a time, in our studio workshops.
