At Bluestem we choose works of clay, glass, wood, metal, and fiber from established, nationally recognized artists, and from emerging craftspeople, students, and apprentices in our little part of the world – the Midwest.
We love and respect our artists, know most of them well, and hope soon to know every one of them personally. Some have been with us since day one! Others joined us last week. They're our extended family, our kindred spirits, people we want to know better and represent well.
Are you an artisan looking to submit work?
At Bluestem we carry work year-round from Missouri artists, and artists in the surrounding 8 states. Each artist's body of work is juried in by the business partners. Selections reflect craftsmanship, uniqueness and price. To submit a body of work please contact us through email, including a brief description of your process, retail prices and photos that best represent your work. We are always looking for new and exciting products!
