I discovered Sarah Thirlwell’s incredible vases through Pinterest (Are you on there yet??  Holy of holies, get on that.) and lost all sense of time and space for a few moments… until I clicked through to her portfolio, wherein an entire collection of hand-turned vases exploded onto my monitor accompanied by — Continue reading

I had the great pleasure of meeting Cheryl and discovering her work during the Sun Valley Arts Festival this year.  Her vibrant, abstract encaustic paintings absolutely stole my breath (and my heart… and frankly, the show).  I went back to her booth several times, chatted her up, and finally bought a — Continue reading

TRUCK :: Modern Furniture

I don’t know what I love more: Truck’s gorgeous, hand-crafted furniture or their dreamlike product photos.  Or maybe I love their philosophy and mission statement the most: “We design the kind of furniture we want ourselves, regardless of fashion.  We respect the properties of the materials―wood, leather, steel―we use and — Continue reading

Steven Yazzie :: Paintings

Highly abstracted, these landscape paintings by Steven Yazzie are right up my alley.  Desert born and bread, I can only nod my head to Steven’s statement that his paintings seek to evoke “a feeling one might experience while standing in the middle of a canyon shaped by a million years — Continue reading

Why yes, yes I do believe I could cozy up quite well with British textile designer Eleanor Pritchard’s 100% wool blankets.  I think the “Shingle” pattern in Lyme would suite me just fine.  And perhaps after that, well, I’d just have to lay my head down on one of these — Continue reading

Oh snap.  Jonathan Zawada may have just moved up to my number one favorite artist spot.  I mean, there’s nothing like some abstract mountains mixed with some crazy colors to make me a little weak in the knees*.  Anyone else have this… “problem”?
