NEW SHOP! The Joyful Jewel

The Joyful Jewel in Pittsboro NC is a high quality gallery for local fine art of all kinds.  It is owned and operated by fantastic folks who love and support the arts, and they strive to cater to a vibrant art community by offering performance art events and classes. I am honored to be part of their special gallery, as well as the Pittsboro art scene.


It seems not so long ago I was hoping to one day have my own website where folks could go to see examples of my work. For nearly 10 years I have had that, with updates and revisions to reflect changes over time. Here is the latest version of stevekarloski.com, featuring lots of new gallery images to show you how my work looks today.

I am often asked if my work can be purchased online, and because each piece is so unique I do not offer that, but, because the gallery here shows many current styles and colors, feel free to contact me to arrange a purchase of a similar piece.

Ultimately I prefer to sell my work at local craft shows or shops, where you can experience the piece for yourself.  On the EVENTS page you can see a list of current confirmed shows, as well as locations for shops where my work can be purchased.

Again, feel free to CONTACT me with any questions or requests. Because my work is hand built, it is always unique so colors, shapes and sizes are close approximations.
