Kim Baise Mobiles

by Anh-Minh on October 16, 2014

kimbaise_mobile1Los Angeles artist Kim Baise‘s work appeals to me on an aesthetic and a nostalgic level: one of my earliest memories involving decorative objects is my childhood mobile (it was a polka-dotted umbrella with animals suspended from it), and I can’t even tell you how many elementary school projects I did that involved papier-mâché (a reindeer for a holiday scene stands out).

Back to Baise: How ridiculously cute are her ice-cream mini mobile strands (shown above)? Each one consists of five treats, among them an orange creamsicle with a bite taken out for extra whimsy. If you’re on the hunt for a cool mobile and already have a particular motif in mind, good news: Baise allows for customization. In addition to what she offers in her Etsy shop, you can see more of Baise’s creations on her blog.

Kati von Lehman

The thing that I love most about ceramics is that they are all about the details, like these sophisticated beauties from Kati von Lehman. Her path started in 2011 when she decided to work from home while taking care of her daughter. She made clothing, furniture, even toys, all of which led to her need to “design and make everything we use in a way that would suit our lifestyle and also be beautiful.” Her pieces are all about functionality and efficiency, while also being perfect for small spaces with their stackability and nesting quality. The ceramics are meant to be used on a daily basis—and I’m happy to do my part and would find every excuse to use these gray kitchen bowls every day.

Rinn Textiles by Erin Gilkes

Do you ever find something that you don’t know what to do with it or where to put it, but you just know you want to possess it? That is exactly how I feel about these pieces from Rinn Textiles by Erin Gilkes. The table tapestries are made of both wool and linen and totally handmade in her Hamilton, Ontario, studio. Each piece is totally one-of-a-kind, so the hardest part, really, is picking a favorite.

These embroideries by Meredith Woolnough are some of the very best representations of nature’s delicacy that I have ever seen. From leaves to coral, her works of art are absolutely stunning. She uses a sewing machine to create her works, but instead of opting for traditional fabric, she uses a base cloth that dissolves in water. The magical result is an ethereal form that could very much come from the earth itself.

Signe Yberg Ceramics

by Anh-Minh on October 10, 2014

signeyberg_jugSigne Yberg is a Brooklyn-based stylist who, about four years ago, started dabbling in clay. And I for one, am glad she did! On her website, she notes that she is “inspired by color and texture, and drawn to simple shapes, clean lines, and elegant proportions. I like to make functional pottery—pieces that I want to use in my own home—to add beauty to daily rituals and special occasions.”

Yberg’s handcrafted collection includes bowls, cups, vases, and other vessels. My favorite is the Glug Jug—shown above in coral, with gray and white stripes on the speckled buff stoneware. It’s large enough to hold the contents of an entire bottle of wine, and there are also matching cups … Well, when the pieces aren’t sold out, that is!
