#2293 CutOuts Floor Pillows

The ‘CutOuts’ floor pillows were designed for the site specific exhibition ‘project #2293‘. The designs are a playful take on the shapes, texture and colour found within the Eichler home in which they were exhibited; modernist wooden panelled walls, globe ceiling lights, interspersed with brightly coloured furniture and the odd children’s toy. Inspired by some floor pillows seen in this photograph of Charles and Ray Eames in their living room in 1958, the ‘CutOuts’ floor pillows were designed as a set of six, to be stacked, switched around or used individually on the floor.

‘CutOuts’ Floor Pillows, Limited Edition of 5 of each design.

Size: 18×18″ / Material: Digital Print on Poly Linen / Filler: Organic Buckwheat Hull / Durable & machine washable

San Mateo Eichler Home Tour

Last weekend some of my pieces found new homes, picked up at the San Mateo Highlands Eichler Home Tour http://eichlerhometour.org/. Big thanks to amazing Ami who helped me out once again. We met lots of interesting people and toured some beautiful homes. Needless to say I left feeling super inspired!

 

 

 

Link – Winter 2013.

Yay, Link’s winter furoshiki are out! Please take a look …

My latest design ‘Dots‘ is available in blue, black and rust. The design continues along the theme of folding and wrapping. Hours of paper folding and experimenting went on behind the scenes, which was a lot of fun … perhaps I’ll share some sketches at a later date.

Also launched this winter season is ‘The Hida Express‘, another beautifully intricate design by Hannah Waldron (designer of the Maze furoshiki, Winter 2012) based on a train journey she took through the Japanese Alps.

Hello

I have been rather absent from this site for a while. It’s hard to squeeze these things in, in between looking after two young children and relocating from one city to another, amongst other things. I’m hoping soon things will normalise and I can once again redirect my focus towards other interests!

As our lives get organized, my daughter is attending a very nice art camp this week at LUX, down the road from where we’re staying. I was very happy to discover this rather unique place. She’s doing the printmaking workshop. When I pick her up I get itchy fingers looking at all the lovely pieces they’ve been working on. So much fun!

Rainy day.

How to build a city.

I love this work by at swim-two-birds. Collage made from paper trash, then embroidered. Beautiful.
