EG Art Festival – Check Out these Featured Artists!

22 Aug

CHRISTINA ALMONTE – So Loved 316     EMILY HIRSCH – Althalia Originals

Soap IS art, believe it or not!

 These days, soap comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes and chemicals that are made up from all around the world.  The soap and body care line of 316 Traditional Remedies is naturally and beautifully based on what is not found in the ingredients that others use to artificially enhance and entice the senses.

Each product is carefully developed using the highest quality ingredients that include certified organic oils, plant extracts, minerals and clays for color.

 Although some smaller batches are made for pure fun, most are based on some traditional remedy that may be beneficial for various ailments or benefit a loved one undergoing cancer treatment, such as fragrant-free, extra moisturizing or simple chemical free, paraben-free products.

Christina’s inspiration for her work derives from her desire to find the cure for cancer.  She has been involved in the study of medicinal plants from around the world – both in the scientific research world of pharmaceuticals to living and working with traditional healers in the Amazon and bush of Papua New Guinea

Visit Christina Almonte of So Loved 316 online today to learn more about not only her wonderful art, but her strides toward finding a cure for cancer. You will also find Christina at the East Greenwich Art Festival on September 1st and 2nd!

Since beginning her career in jewelry making, Emily has made over 8,000 unique pieces, utilizing the highest quality sterling silver and semi-precious stones.

Stella Marie Soap Company: Putting Your Average Bar of Soap to Shame

14 Apr

Kim Gonzaga is a professional soapmaker and owner of Stella Marie Soap Company. She has been making soap for over ten years and is a proud member of the Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild. Founded in 2007, Stella Marie Soap Company was born out of a desire to merge artistic expression with a passion for the bath.

Drawing on inspiration from punk rock, pop culture, baseball and feminism, Kim created a line of fun but highly beneficial bath and body products made with natural ingredients. She named the company after her two grandmothers, who have had a profound influence on her.

The company mission is to produce fresh, skin-nourishing products of the highest possible quality in an environmentally responsible manner while offering an exciting alternative to the mainstream. Stella Marie Soap Company was the recipient of a 2010 Best of Rhode Island award from Rhode Island Monthly Magazine as well as a 2010 Best of Providence award from the Providence Phoenix.
