In Lori’s own words she says her interests are in, “Art that is the size and resonance of a haiku, quiet and solid as the ground beneath one’s feet.” Here here.
Meredith Woolnough’s entire collection of work is worth looking through if you love textiles and embroidery but her mandala series is my favorite.
Porcelain is amazing. Hard in touch, soft in look all at the same time. ReCheng Tsang would agree. Her installations and small sculptures are almost exclusively made of porcelain.
When reading Myungjin Kim’s artist statement I knew right away that we would be fast friends – her aesthetic in a few words, “hand painted porcelain vessels.” Amazing. She usies instinct to form her vessels and creates, as she says, “inside/outside surrealistic dramas.” The above is a close up of the piece entitled, “Translucid Remains” – [...]
Non-woven materials was the phrasing that caught my eye after first seeing Kaori Umeda’s work. What is non-weaving and how does it look so cool. The above is non-woven fabric so I take that to mean that it’s just shaped somehow into this form. In her artist statement Kaori simply says, “When I make my artworks, [...]
Valerie Zimany’s work incorporates many elements that I love – they’re largely made of porcelain, she creates multiples from the same mold and manipulates those repetitions, and she uses her molds til they break down – turning memories into faded ones.

Sophie and Lili is a small company that makes adorable and fun fabric dolls for, I would argue, “girls of all ages.” I don’t know where I came upon their work but…it was probably Instagram…I’m hooked. I have a particular affinity for their non-doll offerings – super summery prints. As we start to pack and [...]
I love oil paintings and I love color, color blocking and more so when I came across the work of Teil Duncan I was thrilled. She’s young, lives in Charleston, South Carolina and paints fabulous nudes as well as beautiful animals with a really distinct touch. She’s a young Auburn graduate as well! I remember [...]
Holly Senn is really cool. I know, I say that about everyone. But Holly creates her sculptural installations out of discarded library books. It’s funny in part because Holly herself has worked in corporate and academic libraries for much of her career. How many of us haven’t wanted to tear up some of our work [...]
I love how modern these textiles works by Eleanor Anderson look but I really can’t find out too much about her online. I found out about her through the even-awesome, Textile Arts Center where it appears she’s a resident right now. As I got to digging around though it appears she’s far younger than I [...]
