Powers of Ten Infinity Scarves!? Aye! It just makes sense.

Here we go!  After some time away from making product for the holiday markets, I have restocked my infinity scarves. There are 12 patterns to choose from.  All scarves are made from 100% organic cotton knit fabric that has been digitally printed with elements derived from my Powers of Ten series and hand-sewn by me here in my Denver studio.  Check out my shop if you are interested.  Spring should be nice time to wear them.

Also, I've been working on a new line of surface designs that I look forward to sharing with you in the near future.  In the meantime, I hope that you are all well and enjoying the slow shifting season.

New...'Powers of Ten' Pillows

The last couple of months have been busy making goods based upon the patterns in my Powers of Ten series.   These are 19" x 19" feather-fill pillows created from my surface design collections Crystals, Flotsam, Lilypads, Branches, Pinwhickle and Ropes.  Each design is digitally printed on a linen/cotton blend fabric, with a linen/cotton backing fabric and piping.  All have a zipper closure.

I'll be selling them this weekend at the Horseshoe Holiday Market here in Denver.  It's from 10am to 4pm Satruday at Pavilions.  It would be great to see you there!  I'll also have them for sale on my site soon.  Stay tuned.

Happy Holidays!

New Business Cards

While working on repeat pattern design for my Objects in Place series, I was inspired to produce new business cards.  I had them printed through Moo, and I'm thrilled with the result. 

The initial patterns were drawn with templates and rulers and colored in with colored pencils.  I then scanned the images and created seamless repeat line-work using Illustrator.  Here I played around with color, and as you can see there are multiple palettes for many of the patterns.  They are printed on a heavy card stock with a matte finish (the Luxe option at Moo).

Eames Molded Plastic Rocker Transformed through Upholstery

As part of the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art's White Space event, sponsored by Design Within Reach, six artists were invited to transform the Eames plastic molded rocker.  I chose to upholster the chair with hand made lacing that I made from some black and white plaid fabric. I loved thinking about the relationship between art and design and hope to work more with furniture. There is something so honest about working with form and function. The other participating artists were: Sabin Aell, Allan Andre, Donald Fodness, Alvin Gregorio and Xi Zhang.

The Process: Templates were made and attached, holes were punched to mark the drill hole locations, holes were drilled and the weaving implemented.
