Lindsay Bottos is a well of creativity, labeling herself as a photographer, fiber artist, writer, and bookmaker. Her embroidered garments in Girl Work, as well as her embroidered hoops with mementos in I Don’t Really Miss You, really strike a chord.

If you’re a lover of both periodicals and modern design, then I have a sneaking suspicion that Basket newspaper rack might peak your interests! British industrial designer Benjamin Hubert used solid wood and veneer to create this stunning silhouette and updated alternative to the traditional newspaper rack. Use it to store everything from magazines to knitting gear.

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.

Alma Haser was born into an artistic family in the Black Forest, Germany and is now based in London. Known for her complex and meticulous portraits, she creates striking work that expands the idea of traditional portrait photography. Alma takes her photographs further with paper-folding techniques, collage, and mixed media to blur the distinction between 2D and 3D imagery.

Stina Persson‘s bright, bold, occasionally unruly work can be seen in fashion magazines, galleries, and advertising campaigns the world over. I love the way she manages to coax specific details from what could otherwise be considered a very abstract style of work.
