This weekend I was on the other side of the table strolling the aisles of West Coast Craft. WCC is my favorite artist and maker fair and I hardly get to enjoy it when I’m working the booth. It’s such an inspiring show. Below are some of the freshness to be found at WCC.
Sally England is a fiber artist that explores scale, form, and composition. Her installation was the first thing that I came upon. The intricacy of these jellyfish styled structures immediately drew me in. Upon further inspection you can see that the work within is no small feat.
Oh hello shiny stripes. Designed by Anna Alexia for Lonny Magazine, this room is calling for fun cocktails and a dance party.
Larissa Hadjio and I were booth neighbors a few shows back and I always check in to see what newsness she brings. I love her juxtaposed style of old world craftsmanship and whimsy. I think these toile inspired coverall might have to be my new work outfit.
CRAFTSMANSHIP of course.
Yvonne Mouser brings in a meditative simplicity that begs you to ogle at the craftsmanship of her work. The forms found within each piece give functionality but also tell a story of their presence.
We weren’t at WCC this time but we have a more than enough events coming up this holiday season. Sign up for our newsletter (it’s at the bottom of the page).
