I’ve already said goodbye to a few of my annuals from summer and am thinking ahead to mums and pumpkins, so you could say botanicals are on my mind. Irene Laschi is an Italian artist who specializes in scientific illustration, and her captures of flora are detailed and starkly beautiful.

Natalie Muir could create a beautiful universe filled with her fluid resin paintings. Using fine pigments and art-grade resin on a wood substrate, she focuses on the behaviors of the colors, the thoughts they inspire, and their relationship with human emotion in each piece that measures nearly 16-inches across.

Jaime Keiter‘s one-of-a-kind geometric sculptures use clay as canvas, a series of paintings collaged from individually hand crafted and glazed porcelain stoneware tiles create the eventual wallhanging. Her process begins with cutting geometric and organic shapes from clay slabs, underglazing patterns and textures, and then finishing each tile with a variety of different mid-fire glazes. The collages are then pieced together to create small geometric sculptures and larger grouted works.

I love having fresh flowers in my home and will pare down a bouquet as it wilts until only a few blooms remain. Flower Constellations make floral arranging using only a few stems super easy thanks to a flat brass disk with openings that can expand and contract to fit a variety of vases.
The perforated patterns in the 12 different Flower Constellations are derived from the signs of the Zodiac, creating a playful distribution of the flowers in the vase. The design is loosely inspired by floral artform Ikebana, celebrating the beauty and composition of single flowers.

Over the past few months I’ve come to the realization that much of the art I find myself drawn towards includes a crossover between reality and memory. Jeremy Miranda‘s acrylic paintings hit the sweet spot, so much so that I’m struggling to put my thoughts into words. I want to walk through the doors of these buildings, sit at the tables, and pickup a paintbrush myself.
