Lyndie Dourthe

by Kate on November 24, 2015


It’s been a bit cold and dreary here the past few days, and I have been craving some bright, rich color to lift my spirits. I went hunting for some super-saturated artwork, and I discovered the beautiful paper botanical creations of Lyndie Dourthe.

Dourthe has a keen eye for detail and texture, and uses a combination of watercolor painting and paper cutting to create some truly incredible pieces. You can see more of her work, including some of her commissioned work for print publications here. If you’re lucky, you may be able to snag one of her works, which she occasionally offers for sale.






issue4_coverIssue No. 4/Summer 2011 will always have a special place in my heart for several reasons, including: It marked the completion of our first year of publishing Anthology, and my home is featured in the magazine. Below are a few more spreads from the issue, and you can still check out a sampling on the content in our online preview.

If you’d like to purchase Issue No. 4, or any of our other available back issues, head over here, please.

Laura Slater

anthologymag-blog-lauraslater-1After the brief break from the blog, my eyes were ready to find something that popped out at me. Pairing simple items with bold patterns is an easy design trick, and Laura Slater‘s prints fulfill that bold pattern criteria. Slater graduated from the Royal College of Art, and currently resides in West Yorkshire. She creates, draws, and then screen prints layers of shapes and patterns onto fabric. Slater is able to blend playful and structured concepts in her designs, and her home accessories are works of art.

Her new collection, Grid, is inspired by the considerable presence of grid lines in textiles. Branching out from textiles, the new Grid line includes kitchen ware and planters. You can find her latest products here.

backissues_tuesOver the years, we’ve frequently received inquiries about back issues. We haven’t offered them in the past, but with the holidays approaching, we thought this would be a great time to do just that. We think they’d make an awesome gift for the Anthology reader who’s missing an issue here and there (whether that’s you and/or someone you know).

Now through the end of the year, we’re selling all available back issues. Please note that Issue Nos. 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 9 are completely sold out. And our current/final release, Issue No. 21/Fall 2015, is still available through most of our stockists.

The spreads featured here are just a sampling of the content from Issue No. 3/Spring 2011. In the coming weeks, we’ll share pages from some of the other back issues that you can still purchase. (I’m feeling so nostalgic as I browse through them!)

Elise Lefebvre

anthologymag-blog-ceramics-elise-lefebvre-1I’m lucky to have a neighbor who collects bird feeders and birdhouses of various kinds, and as a result we always a healthy cluster of happy birds to admire through our window. During a brief storm the other day, I heard the most marvelous chorus of birds singing to one another through the rain. It inspired me to delve into a little research to identify the species, and since then I’ve had birds on my mind—which is why these delightful bird-inspired ceramic pieces called to me.

Elise Lefebvre is a French ceramic artist with a delicate, illustrative style and a joyful color palette. Her collection of bird pieces are my favorite; I can’t resist their adorably painted faces and cheerful round shapes. I’m going to spend a bit more time here admiring the birds, but I highly recommend taking a visit to her site to check out the full range of her work, all of which glows with her whimsical, painterly touch.
