A favorite medium of mine is ceramic – porcelain can be translucent, stoneware can be chalky and strong, and some can be nearly paperlike and sculptural. The work of Thérèse Lebrun is just that kind of creator though I can’t find too much about her – in English. I just love the rough edges she’s able [...]
A short post tonight because I just can’t seem to find that much information about Shiwa Rashtian online, though I do love her creations. Her design studio is located in Utrecht, Netherlands and her pieces are largely functional.
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.

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” – [...]

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. You can see where her molds are fused on the pieces, which I also [...]
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 [...]
