Liz Robb is a Los Angeles-based artist who knows her way around textiles. While creating each of her collections Robb reaches for linen, merino, cotton, porcelain, various earth pigments, found objects, and beads among other materials. She works on and off the loom, creates in wildly varying sizes, and makes some of her own dyes. (If you listen closely, you can hear me bowing down.)

Paris-based Dodo Toucan, helmed by Sara Theron, finds the sweet spot between design and crafts with their ceramic creations. Each one – usually an animal – is part of a very limited series that’s handmade with the hope of brightening up an ordinary day. Some pieces are miniature and can be carried in your pocket as a sort of good luck charm, while others are a bit larger.

Life-sized polar bears that are like no other because they’re covered in bright, colorful feathers! Paola Pivi is the artist behind them, and even though the bears aren’t new I love them all the same. Pivi even consulted with a taxidermist to get every detail just right on all eight of her urethane sculptures.

ORA ET LABORA Co. represents emerging and independent designers from Italy, Argentina, and the USA. Their intention is to empower culture, preserve heritage, and create a new approach to global community, artisanship, and individualism.
