Emma-Leone Palmer / Paint Play Series

 

Emma-Leone Palmer paints faces, but what she strives to capture are the deep wells of feeling and emotion that run beneath the surface of their expressions. Her latest work, the Paint Play series, uses paint, lube, glitter, and water, the mediums smeared, dripped, flicked, and splashed onto the subject’s face to trigger reactions and emotions. It’s not premeditated, rather hundreds of photos are taken and the paintings made as a result.

Lizzie Fortunato Jewelry

 

Lizzie Fortunato‘s Spring/Summer ’18 collection is inspired by a summer of love and full of the prettiest golden tones and statement pieces (naturally). It’s a smorgasbord of organic shapes, a 1960s vibe, and fringe – you can also get a peek of FW18 and pre-order!

Julia Haft-Candell

 

Ceramicist Julia Haft-Candell‘s The Infinite examines the idea behind the title and concept through a series of two dozen black clay sculptures and five rock-like pieces constructed from the scraps of those sculptures, called Weights. Each looping variation features a pattern across its surface – wave, arch, chain, eye, weave, knot, or braid – and you can read more about each in the project’s accompanying glossary of terms and symbols.

Kyle Surges

 

Summertime is definitely nostalgia-filled season, and Kyle Surges‘ paintings – yes, paintings! – bring on the feelings in spades. That perfect rectangle of Hershey’s chocolate is just waiting to become a toasty s’more. Those Coca Colas are begging to be uncapped next to a pool on a sweltering day. Surges is a master of capturing these objects of youth and beyond.

Orbita Clock

 

Orbita is a conceptual wall clock that defies the classic concept of clock, where the hands turn on a fixed central point. In Orbita they’ve been replaced by two “turntables” that roll on a fixed plate with only two elements needed to mark the passing of time – two dots that mark hours and minutes.

Lani Mitchell / KIND

 

Abstract expressionism is often thought of as old boys club. Thankfully, Australian painter and contemporary artist Lani Mitchell is challenging the thought with her own work that’s inspired and driven by experiences of love, relationships, and kindness. All of these pieces are from her KIND exhibit which explores these themes within a micro and macro context.

Alissa Bell Stationery

 

I think we can all agree that beautiful, everyday objects have a way of elevating life. Alissa Bell‘s impeccably designed minimalist modern line of notebooks and stationery embody this mindset completely in the Essentialist Collection. Elegant, clean, and simple, you’ll be sending snail mail and reaching for a notebook rather than your phone to take notes in no time. (She also does custom orders!)

Kelly Beeman‘s unmistakable illustration style is such an inspiration. The Brooklyn-based, self-taught artist has a diverse body of work, from simple black and white contour drawings of nudes to watercolor paintings full of mundane objects and contradictions.

Pocket Mirror

 

Daniel Schofield creates products that solve problems through simplicity – his Pocket Mirror combines a small storage pocket with a mirror. The wall-mounted mirror would be perfectly placed in the entry, allowing one last glance in the mirror while grabbing daily essentials from the small natural oak storage pocket. Pocket Mirror is available in three finishes: natural, smoked, or black painted oak.

Barbara Dziadosz

 

Barbara Dziadosz is a freelancing illustrator from Hamburg, Germany who specializes in printmaking, editorial, illustrated recipes, and character design. Two subjects she returns to again and again are eloquently posed hands holding various flora and different species of insects, both captured in a flat 2D style that I’m partial to. (And that snake? Yeah, I’d love it tattooed on my ribcage.)
