John Dahlstrom Opens Cranberry Corners Studio...

Jon Dahlstrom came into this world drawing. In fact, he can't remember a time when he wasn't drawing. From his earliest years, he filled every available sheet of paper, including the back of lunch bags and margins of second grade math papers - with drawings of cars, cowboys, and football players. 
Always shown in action, always telling a story. Jon grew up in a rural Southern California community and went on to become a scholarship student at the Art Center College of Design. A freelance illustrator, Jon Dahlstrom's drawings have been published in dozens of books and magazines including Road and Track, Cycle World, Teen, Surfer, Los Angeles Magazine, and the Chicago Tribune (to name a few!). He recently followed his internal compass from the west coast all the way to Dahlonega, and says it's the best decision he ever made! Jon Dahlstrom can be found on an almost-daily basis, drawing plotting and scheming inside his Cranberry Corners Art nook.

Another Happy Customer...

It's so nice to hear from happy customers! Chris and his family stopped by Cranberry Corners in Dahlonega, GA a few months ago and fell in love a handcrafted pottery bowl - froggy style, handmade by a local North Georgia artist. 
Their flight back to England was the next day, so we wrapped the piece up as best we could, along with well-wishes for a safe journey across the pond.   We were so happy to receive this photo once the frogs had made the hop across the pond, safe and sound.  The little critters look happy in their new home, don't you think?
