The Vision of One:
26" x 12" hand-built pottery on wood
“THE VISION OF ONE” is from the vision of Henry Ford, Henry Ford was able to take a vision from one Car and create an industry now known for Ford Motor Car Company! The history of Henry Ford Company was founded in 1903, by 1915 Henry Ford purchases 2,000 acres of marshland along the Rouge River in Dearborn.
In 1927 The Model T Production ended after more than 15 million were produced.
In 1929 the Rouge employment claims to 103,000.
In 1942 World War II Halts Civilian Car Productions
In 1949 Ford Introduces the first all-new cars built at the Rouge since World War II
In 1965 Ford Mustang begins production at the Rouge
It was a city without residents. At its peak in the 1930s, more than 100,000 people worked at the Rouge. To accommodate it required a multi-station fire department, a modern police force, a fully staffed hospital and a maintenance crew 5,000 strong. One new car rolled off the line every 49 seconds. Each day, workers smelted more than 1,500 tons of iron and made 500 tons of glass, and every month 3,500 mop heads had to be replaced to keep the complex clean.
The driving vision behind the sweeping size and scale of the complex, of course, was Henry Ford and his ambition to build cars that ordinary citizens could afford and to create a way to make more of them faster f than anybody else.
“The Vision of One” has depicted a vision of one man's Dream of Creating his Vision.
I have created a “THE VISION OF ONE” through my interest in history that has changed our lives forever.

Debbie began her art career over 35 years ago creating beautiful original ceramic Dickens-Style Villages. Attending her first craft show started her love for working in clay designing the villages. Each piece of her Dickens-Style Villages could be personalized at the art show to fit the family that purchased it. Over the years with growing interest of her work, Debbie started her quest with handmade buildings of historical Michigan lighthouses as well as historical homes and buildings throughout Metro Detroit.
“Look up, look down, and look all around…you never know what lies about”, Debbie likes to remind her collectors. Her work is included in many private and personal collections including the office of Kevin Orr which is now in Washington DC.

Paul uses multiple medias to create his art, including water color, acrylics, gouache, oil pastel, graphite, charcoal and chalk pastels to capture still life, landscape, figure and recently exploration of abstract. Paul stated that he works in layers and searches for forms that connect with the idea as they appear. He is interested in all the ways one could use to make a picture and create a story.
“I started to paint and draw while experimenting with photography. I became curious about what it would be like to draw some of the things I was photographing and found the act of drawing with pencil on paper more intriguing.”
