article on the moma's willem de kooning retrospective last year. it pretty much sums up how i feel about art and art-making - to discover and create your own world. today, i read a sight unseen post on the ever-awesome building block with a similar theme: "it has always been about making our own world." i'm revolting (great article, su!) photo via waka waka (great shelving unit, shin!)
New OUI stockist: Pour Porter! Noel and I collaborated on an exclusive-to-Pour Porter teacup-sized ceramic candle. I spent a lot of time finding the right scent that would match the jade & pink speckled glaze we chose and meet her request for a light, herbal blend. I found it in a mix of basil and anise (and even a bit of sage!) It's a lovely scent, with just a bit of depth and warmth from the anise. There are also two different ceramic garlands available on the site: one in a pastel palette & another in a brights & darks palette. The beads come in three shapes - sphere, cube, & pyramid - and feature a mix of solid and speckled glazes. Please check out her superbly curated site! I'm honored to be added to the amazing list of designers in her shop. x
i'm so excited for next week! two crafts that i've been wanting to learn have suddenly come into my world! first, beatrice valenzuela posted the following pics on her instagram of a mini loom by linnaea saunders. inspired, i ordered one! i have never weaved (woven?) before but have always wanted to, and this mini loom seems so accessible.
the sweet anne of mcmc fragrances asked me to answer a few questions for her blog. check it out here. as a non-fan of conventional perfumes, i have been a fan of mcmc since day one (and still wear them everyday). thanks, anne!
