In September of 2019 they decided to no longer advertise on-line.

In May of 2019 Ray and Mary Helen decided they wanted a much smaller website. A storm at a fair in the summer of 2018 caused damage to their merchandise, and they stopped doing outdoor events. Mary Helen continues to make fantastic gourd art, but their jewelry’s been discontinued. FastWinn Web reduced their website to just a couple of pages.

Their new Home page:


Their new Gourd Art page:


The artists of the Pelton Collection contacted us for a website redesign. Their previous website had been set up as an on-line store. Ray and Mary Helen found that they were spending too many hours maintaining the on-line inventory. They wanted an artists website that would showcase their art. They wanted time to create new jewelry and gourd art.  They wanted to attend events. They didn’t want to spend that time working on the website.

They chose one of our artists website packages and FastWinn Web went to work. We chose a simple dark background. Their art is the focus. We incorporated the Pelton Collection logo, for that accent of turquoise.  Mary Helen and Ray wanted a photo rotator for their collections. Each collection has a image in the rotator, and another sample image further down the home page.

the Pelton Collection attends multiple events each month, around Tucson, AZ and around Deer River, MN. Ray and Mary Helen now have an Events Page. Their events can be seen as a list, as a month, or by day.  They wanted people to know about themselves. They wanted folks to be able to contact them. Mary Helen and Ray didn’t want that information to overshadow their art. FastWinn Web combined their About page with their Contact page.

FastWinn Web then added the finishing touches like a footer menu. We added a favicon. We added Contact Us links as buttons. We linked the collections to each other. Each collection has its own gallery. Each gallery can be seen as a slideshow. the Pelton Collection now connects to Mary Helen’s friends through her Facebook page. Check out what they’re doing this week!
