Los Ranchos artist and owner of Kelly Jo Designs studio, Kelly Jo Kuchar, has been busy this month.
As part of their extensive renovations, Santa Fe’s La Fonda Hotel has commissioned Kelly Jo Designs to create and produce 170 hand-painted tile murals, one for each guest room.
Designs, painted in Kelly Jo Designs colorful style, will include mainly stylized scenes of New Mexico.
Work is to be completed by end of December, which puts Kelly Jo Kuchar and staff under the gun as this falls during the studio’s huge 10,000 sq.ft. annual holiday sale.
Kelly Jo Designs has been locally producing ceramics in New Mexico since 1991. During that time recognition for the quality wares and distinctive look has grown. In addition to the La Fonda project, Kelly Jo Designs has created 5 exclusive patterns for national Nordstrom chain. Currently, the studio has been generating quite a buzz in the California wine country by producing complete custom winery collections for such tasting rooms as Viansa, Chimney Rock, Peju, and Ferrari-Carano wineries.
Studio is open daily to the public during the holidays from 10-5.
