Wilmington, Del. - The glue that holds George and Deann Verdier together is made up of wet potters' clay and whisper-thin shards of spun metal, of paintbrush bristles and dabs of artisanal honey. For more than three decades, the Verdiers have worked side by side nurturing the Sugarloaf Craft Festivals that they founded in 1975 in Montgomery County. Today, the fairs attract 350,000 customers and generate about $20 million in sales annually. Shows are held each year in 17 cities in the Midwest and along the East Coast, including Timonium, where Sugarloaf stops this weekend.

Devin Mack was in a figurative drawing class at Ithaca College more than a decade ago when his professor handed him a roll of wire and said, "Here, make a figurative drawing out of this. " Mack, who was studying cinema and photography at the school, made his first sculpture and took the first step into a career. Today he continues to make wire sculpture "large and small" out of everything from coat hangers to precious metal. Indeed, probably one of his best known sculptures is a 12-foot-tall honeybee outside of Baltimore Honey, a community-supported apiary in Woodberry.

Ceramic artist Brian Beckenheimer admits that after owning As the Wheel Turns, a store in Harborplace for 27 years, and doing art shows for 34 years, "I was totally burned out. " He sold his house in Owings Mills last year and took the year off, moving to Arizona to be with his grown daughter, a hairstylist, and doing no pottery. Eight months later, he reconsidered. "I just got so bored with doing nothing," said Beckenheimer, 57, who now lives in Mount Washington and rents studio space with several kilns in a Woodberry-area warehouse that also houses several cabinetmakers and an architectural model maker.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but owners of ski areas are finding that a computer network may be more valuable yet. It is a vast new outlet for ski areas that in the past have relied on brochures and advertisements to enrich their businesses.It is the Internet, a public information highway connected by telephone to 32 million computers worldwide. For the ski industry, that means boundless ways of selling itself. And for the skier, it means an easy way to get information -- to look at a trail map, arrange for a ski lesson, check out a lodge, rent equipment or learn new techniques.

`Stomp' at Lyric Everyday sounds transform into intriguing music as Stomp returns to the Lyric Opera House. Performers must be rhythmically talented and physically fit as they crash, bang, clatter and clang ordinary household objects to create an innovative musical sound. Audience members will be shocked by the amount of effort and number of props that go into each production. Typically ignored noises - the shutting of a garbage can, the sweeping of a broom or the igniting of a match - will be heard with a unique musicality.

For the past four years, artist Patrick Reid O'Brien has hammered together his display at the Sugarloaf Craft Festival like a carpenter. He starts by attaching pieces of old shutters together. Over the next three hours, he places the art. Then come the finishing touches: faux hardwood floors and Oriental-style rugs. By the time he's finished - the setup takes about 12 hours - O'Brien will have turned a small section of the Maryland State Fairgrounds into a vintage beach cottage.

Despite what the European explorers who named Sugarloaf Mountain thought, it doesn't really look much like a cone of crystallized sugar. And with an elevation of only 1,282 feet, it's not much of a mountain either. But standing alone in the farmland of Montgomery and Frederick counties, more than 20 miles from the Blue Ridge Mountains, Sugarloaf is well worth visiting for the great unobstructed views it offers, especially in winter when the trees are bare (blooming wildflowers make spring a good time so see the mountain, too)
