Stones Bones & Wood Art Gallery Brings Eclectic Art to Green Mountain Falls | Pikes Peak Courier


Arts & Crafts and a view of Lake Gazebo, Stones Bones & Wood in Green Mountain Falls is a gallery of creative ingenuity with nature as a backdrop.

Stainless steel wall hangings inspired by ancient southwest petroglyphs add a distinctive touch to the boutique at 6970 Lake St. The pieces are the work of Holly and Bryan Bystedt, who photograph prehistoric rock patterns as an artistic source.

The Nordics forged links with their artists, including Grant Morris, whose medium is wood which he inlaid with turquoise or amazonite. “It goes on a hike, picks up pieces of wood and then turns into something interesting,” said Ken Nord.

Turned wood lamps, pottery by Denise Vrecenar, handbags in Maruca fabric and paper and wood light fixtures with LED lighting by Ken Chowdery enhance the ambiance of the boutique.

Among the line of craftsmen, Ken Nord is perhaps the most versatile. Mineral hunter, jeweler, photographer and painter, Ken’s latest project is to design and manufacture steel mobiles for an innovative decorative touch.

Her abstract oil of bright yellow and orange, as well as the performative art of the Bystedts, are a fitting introduction to the various offerings in the store.

Plus, Ken’s panoramic photos of Green Mountain Falls frame the greeting cards as well as the iconic coffee mugs.

In addition to art, the Nords have bath and body products, including a CBD lotion bar from Beth Knox.

Ohio high school sweetheart, the Nords moved to Colorado and opened the store 19 years ago with the idea of ​​showcasing an eclectic inventory.

And, of course, there’s the Tursi store cat, who keeps a sly eye on customers who sometimes interrupt naps.
