i am SO excited to be a part of a new site that is all about connecting talented makers with people who will love their creations. it's all stitched together through a community of the world's most talented bloggers, curators, writers and designers. i am extra excited, because i have been selected to both curate my own little boutique, as well as sell my artwork through the site! very cool stuff.
i have always loved searching for and sharing beautiful things (ahem - if you've known me since way back in the days when i had curated fey handmade, then you'd know that i was quite the hunter-gatherer!) so this new platform gives me that same opportunity to find lovely things and share them with my readers and fans! woohoo!
above, is some of the work of kuzana ogg, from bakersfield, ca. her patterns and colors are almost trancelike, and her description of the process for creating her work is equally mesmorizing.
"Color and its application remain the focal point of my work. Textile design devices such as block print, ikat and repeats are also prevalent here. However, in the current work, pattern is disrupted; partially obliterated in some areas, completely articulated in others. Mark and imagery are developed through an indirect method of ghosting colors and line fragments. This layering and attention to stroke, produce a lustrous and complex surface, open to interpretation."
(p.s. - all the lovely finds in this post are all gathered together in my great.ly boutique!)
some other great tastemakers to follow for amazing art and design are here too:
i can't wait to share all the beautiful things i find over on great.ly! i'll pop back in with more finds next week :)
