It's Official...

We have studio mates!
The girls from Free Time Industries
are all moved in.
It's been three weeks of bliss.
(At least as far as I know)


...all lonely.

And NOW:

It's like a big old design party up in this.
It's almost like being in school,
only I actually like all my classmates.
Oh and Beth and Megs are around too.

C'est bon.

I'm in love...

with Gretel's new online windows:

I mean, even though she's making me look bad,
(or my photo taking skilllllz)
I still looooooove them.

Inspirations: Julien Renault

I'm really digging his products
especially these shoes.

But I'm really blogging
I love the styling and photography.

Photo Shoot: A Re-cap

I'm excited to see the real
product of Sunday's shoot.

It was a lot of fun
and a huge learning experience for me.

Lauren working her magic.

The panca.

The panca and Ursula.

Frank being rad and well, Frank.

Beth: The Apprentice

The End.

Overheard: In Our Studio

Actually it was
at home while falling asleep on the sofa.

Brian: You know all we need to
do to the Panca bench is widen the length.

Jamie: You mean lengthen it?

Brian: (laughs) Yeah, pretty much.


Dear Universe,
Aside from missing ceramics class,
yesterday was the raddest.
Thank you
keep it up.

We finalized some major
decisions with Justine
for a table project.

While snooping around her site,
I found this photo that
Charlie Schuck took:

I l-l-l-l-l-love his work.
Justine mentioned that
he's taken photos for totokaelo.

Then we met with Ashley
to talk about a lighting project
in portland.
(More details as they firm up.)

Ashley also works as a stylist at Totokaelo
and handed me Charlie's card.
(I love how the universe works.)

Then we mailed off our contract
to Jansen+Co.

And Brian is still obsessed with this and this.

While I've still been obsessed with this:

and this:

And I finished up yesterday with a much
needed 6pm bedtime.
I literally couldn't more anymore.

inpirations: danken

i just found out about danken yesterday.
danken is committed to sourcing fibers from farms
that are organic and predator-friendly.

(predetor friendly means that
no lethal controls are used
on the sheep's native predators.
-i didn't even know that sort of thing existed.)

ashley helvey is the wondergirl
behind the felting
she also has a really lovely blog.

stay tuned for more about danken.
things are a-brewin'.

Inspirations: Kate Clark

say much about kate clark's work.

it sort of speaks for itself.


(all photos by brian except the last one -
that one is from the artist's site)
