georges rousse

One of my favorite pieces from French photographer, painter, and sculptor Georges Rousse:

Georges RousseSpatial Constructions by Georges Rousse

"Constructions are organized entirely around a partition: a continuity/discontinuity between painted space and real space, a remotely geometrical expanse in which colour plays the abstraction game fully." Michéle Moutashar, "L'esprit des lieux," in Georges Rousse Arles, Editions Actes Sud, 2006. (more)

Grace Bonney has been a huge inspiration to us. For years, we both admired the independent artists and designers featured on Design*Sponge with more than just a tinge of jealously. And when we finally decided to start our own studio, we continually turned to and bookmarked just about every Biz Ladies post available. It's safe to say that we couldn't be more thrilled to have been featured on Grace's blog last week!

Design*SpongeThank you, thank you, thank you, Grace!!

washington life magazine

We've been so busy preparing for the holidays that we've gotten behind with our updates. Last month we were invited to be in a fashion editorial for Washington Life Magazine's annual creative issue. We were nervous and excited having never done something like this before, but everyone was great and we had a blast. A huge thanks to Alison McLaughlin for the invitation. Here's the final shot from Artists Abound at Arena, November 2010, p.59!

Washington Life Magazine, November 2010, Artists Abound at ArenaThe photo shoot was at Arena Stage before the official grand re-opening. We got to poke around in the dressing rooms and lobby before it was open to the public and we met Molly Smith, the Artistic Director for Arena at our actual shoot. That mask in the picture is just one from her awesome collection and you can't tell from the photo, but she also has some seriously sassy glasses. Douglas Sonders was the photographer and has to have one of the coolest jobs on the planet. Check out his blog to follow all of his exploits. There were a few errors in our credits above, so bonus points to anyone who can guess what they are! (Hint: they're now updated in the online version.)

Update: Check out our interview with Washington Life on their blog here!

"A carefully considered response to a very steep site with understated ‘mute’, gently sloping, roughly rendered walls and a curved concrete roof. Celebrating modern Australian family life, a generosity of space without ostentation that is practical and serviceable." (more)

Growing up in a former British colony using the metric system makes us somewhat incompetent when it comes to kitchen conversions. One of these would be super helpful ... and nice to look at =)

Eeva Jokinen - small modern rice grain porcelain cupsSmall modern rice grain cups by Eeva Jokinen

"In my work the fragility of porcelain is present at the decoration, in the dialoque between light and shadow, hole and substance. ... Instead of strict form I seek emotion. To me the light that filters through the glaze awakens the feeling of inner peace and the calmness one can return to time and again." (more)

Spencer Finch - Moon DustMoon Dust (Apollo 17), 2009 by Spencer Finch

"This hanging light piece represents precisely the chemical composition of moon dust, that was analyzed on the Apollo 17 mission in 1972. Each light bulb stands for a different atom, the smallest ones represent Oxygen and the large bulbs standing for heavier atoms such as Iron and Chromium." (more)
