The art of homemaking

Hampstead homemaker Glenda Nadeau creates art for her home and friends from found objects. She collects, finds and buys wood from her property and local sources for her pieces of artwork. In her saw mill, she has cut pine, oak and cypress into small shapes which she inlays into intricate patterns for her walls and table tops throughout her house. She often gives the pieces as gifts to friends.

Inspired by Virginia Wright’s Bottle Chapel at Airlie Gardens, Nadeau collected about 6,000 glass bottles and paved a meandering pathway from her green house. She and her husband Mike live on about 100 acres of property where they raised their five sons and currently take care of two rescue horses, two dogs, six turkeys and a full hen house.
