Across the street from the first Starbucks, the North Arcade is filled with a variety of art and crafts. Created by world class artisans. Locally. Memories created within Pike Place Market are in the interactions between visitors and artisans. buskers, servers. Conversations, observations and patronage.
Fine jewelry fabricated out of silver and copper. “I would like something special for our wedding” Gem set. Wire wrapped. Pearls. Leather work. Belts. Bags. “Can you make me a red one for over my shoulder?” Art for your home on canvas, tiles, stone. “Can you ship these please ?” Long Boards. Cigar box guitars. “What does it sound like?” Fabric sewn into wraps and scarves, gloves, skirts and hats. Soft plush toys with gentle welcoming eyes. Cuddly severed Sasquatch heads. Wool felted into owl-ish friends. “I want something for that shelf in my living room.” Glass that is torched into life to form sophisticated beads. More than a bead. Art. The artisan who makes them is standing behind his table and you engage in conversation. “How do you make these?” Frogs on bowls next to a lotus. Mermaids and octopi. In cerulean green. Pottery that calls to you to run your fingers over its surface. Nature and life are expressed through torn magazine pages. “Do you see the dress in this print? It is a Courvoisier bottle and the sleeves of her dress were a picture of fireworks.”
