Current Spring Faves

Spring is finally here, which means it's time to say goodbye to chunky sweaters and hello to breezy tops for most of you.  For us here in Austin we never really got into our chunky sweaters! While I tend to keep my wardrobe minimal, this season seems to be all about making a...

HOME – Spring 2016

I am thrilled to share images of the Spring 2016 lookbook for HOME!  I slowly rolled out alternative rectangular versions of our classic home pieces over the past few months and was finally able to photograph them in context and wanted to share them. These new rectangular versions speak to me...

Forma, Spring 2016

For Spring 2016 I focused on simple geometry and the interplay of shape, proportion, and negative space.  Forma is the result of a conversation between these ideas.  Our classic hammered texture adds interest and dimension, allowing these pieces to shine in their simplicity.  True to our core, each piece remains extremely lightweight, encouraging...

Birthstones: February – Amethyst

illustration: Nature’s Creations Purple has long been considered a regal color, and amethysts frequently appear in royal and religious jewelry. Buddhists have believed that amethyst enhances meditation, and the gem is often used for Tibetan prayer beads. Various cultures have associated amethyst with peace, balance and courage, and ascribed to it...

Mobiles Galore

“Suspended decor is having a moment.” – The Wall Street Journal  Everywhere I turn, mobiles seem to be the new “it” decor item, with even the Wall Street Journal noticing the trend featuring Ladies and Gentleman Studio’s earlier this year.  I have been a fan of mobiles for quite a...

Community: Canoe

  Today, I wanted to highlight a pretty amazing Austin leatherworker {and friend}, Canoe.  Natalie Davis has been innovating with some pretty unique takes on leather including  leather clad vases and leather monstera leaves. Canoe offers a variety of handmade leather goods – all statement making pieces delicately crafted with standout quality, also including leather light...

Community: Jen Kuroki

  I fell in love with the ceramics from maker Jen Kuroki after meeting her at West Cost Craft this past November. Stoneware is pretty hot right now and a current personal obsession. Yet, I don’t know of many designers doing it with such personality and color.  I snagged a few magnets, mug,...

fail HOME launch

I am thrilled to announce the official launch of fail HOME!  I have been dreaming about a home collection for the past 2 years, and with the new studio setup, I was finally able to make this dream a reality. The collection is built upon organic hand-cut and hammered brass...

Eric Bonnin Ceramics

So, it’s been a while since my last post!  I have been doing a lot of organizing here at the studio, prepping for holiday, and took a few scouting trips to Dallas and New York. I went to NYC as a participant in the Martha Stewart American Made Workshop Series...

fail – Behind the Scenes

As some of you may know, my journey over the past 3 years has been pretty amazing, crazy, and not at all expected!  When I was laid off, 3 1/2 years ago, it wasn’t necessarily a surprise, but getting a “pink slip” isn’t easy, no matter how prepared you are. ...

Lee Coren {maker}

I found the lookbook for Israeli designer Lee Coren in my inbox this morning and immediately taken!  Lee’s pieces are so fresh and light, and the lookbook was shot so simply and beautifully.  Each pieces is a limited edition screen print, printed by Lee, with the look of sophisticated textiles...

Local Threads

While traveling recently, I kept going into small local boutiques carrying clothing from independent designers, at reasonable price points.  I am a big supporter of local shops, eateries, and makers, but realized that I didn’t have a go-to for clothing here in Austin.  I started to scratch my head thinking...

Dusen Dusen at Olive

I have been intrigued by the clothing line Dusen Dusen for a while, but hadn’t been able to track down their line here in Austin until now!  Olive is hosting a spring launch party for Dusen Dusen tomorrow, Wednesday April 10th, from 5-7pm.  I have included some of my favorites...

Ermie

Well, I sure haven’t been keeping up in 2013!  Sorry for the silence, but we took a little break, did some remodeling in the studio, and then there was my bachelorette party in NOLA {what happens in NOLA stays in NOLA}.  But now it seems that I am back in...
