Original Art by Andrew Thornton
Earlier this year, Andrew was lucky enough to receive a scholarship to attend Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts. Arrowmont is located in Gatlinburg, TN. He will be learning enameling techniques from Barbara McFadyen.
He will also be picking up our tool buy-out in Mt. Airy, NC. (Many thanks to everyone who helped us to do the tool buy out! We couldn’t have done it without you!) In an effort to offset his travel expenses and the remaining balance not covered by the scholarship, we have decided to put his original artwork on sale. Purchasing his artwork will help empower him to better learn his craft.
From Andrew: Whenever I do a big project like this, I like for it to, at least, partially be paid for by the things that I make. It feels really good to know that my work helps to contribute to my further enrichment. It means so much to me when people want to have my artwork in their homes or as gifts for people that they care for. It is a wonderful confirmation as an artist that I am on the right path. I am grateful to all of you out there who have supported my journey over the years. And to my friends, both old and new, who have been rooting me on, I am forever thankful!
Andrew has a wide variety of price ranges available from less than $20 to bigger collector pieces. This is a great way to support an artist. He will be able to take the skills that he learns at Arrowmont and translate them to things he does here at Allegory Gallery.

Our Hand-Selected Gemstone Strands
Here at Allegory Gallery, we source almost all of our stones by hand in person, and for those we can't we only work with trusted vendors that we've known for years. We only pick the best of the best for you and your designs. If we wouldn't use it in our work, we won't sell it to you.
The items in this collection have all been hand-picked by us at Allegory Gallery. We pride ourselves on offering only the best quality, and we'd never sell something to you if we wouldn't use it in our own work. Shop our findings with confidence knowing we've already done the quality checks for you!
