these are lids for boxes that i’m making for urban palate, but i also really like how they look as two dimensional objects. i love the way that the thread creates different shapes even though the placement of the nails is the same on each square.
although i live in LA now, winter always makes me think about this sculpture… i made it at the end of a year that i spent in vermont (while working at vermont studio center). it’s made from vintage textiles that i collected over the year and dyed green. i installed it in a field, in the dead of winter on a rare sunny day. no one else saw it there- it was a piece that i made for myself.
i was thrilled to see that Bash, Please included photos of three Bramble Workshop creations in their “2012 in Photos” blog post! i really love working with those two- such creative visionaries!
in december my team and i decorated a christmas party charity event in beverly hills. we got to make lots of classic party decorations like tissue paper poms, fringe garlands, and paper fans. i followed this DIY to make the paper trees.
On a recent trip to Chicago I was thrilled to meet Linsey and Crystal of INDO projects. Although our work is different in a lot of ways, we have many things in common- there aren’t that many people out there who get to make window displays for a living! We had a lot to talk about and I even got to help with their current project- a string installation for a showroom in Chicago. Their work is often site specific and informed by the materials they use. Plus, they only work with recycled materials. I really admire this approach because I often have to discard props after my projects are complete.
