I found this piece of material at my parents house a few months ago and was excited to make something out of it. I am really into this color right now, especially in combo with a red/orange accent. To achieve that accent I used a rust orange thread. I also braided together some yarn to create a belt to add a bit more color.
Sunday was a beautiful fall day on Martha’s Vineyard so my fiance and I went for a walk/photo shoot to capture my new skirt. I realize I enjoy making the garment so much more than being the model.
One evening I was with Derek in his shop… while he was working on something I decided to make something. I looked around in his box of mechanical parts and found these stainless steel hose clamps and some orange transformer wrapping wire. This is what I came up with.
London based Industrial Designer Samuel Wilkinson created the Vessel Series, mouth-blown glass lamps that house the Plumen 001, a low energy light bulb. The play between the glass and the bulb create wonderful illusions. I would love to see these in person.

“Dougherty’s works allude to nests, cocoons, hives, and lairs built by animals, as well as the manmade forms of huts, haystacks, and baskets, created by interweaving branches and twigs together. Many of his works look ‘found’ rather than made, as if they were created by the natural force of a tornado sweeping across the landscape. He intentionally tries for this effortless effect, as if his creations just fell or grew up naturally in their settings.”
L’hotel in Pietra is a boutique hotel located in the historical center of the ancient city of Matera, Italy. In 2008 the owners restored and refurbished this excavated stone church, from the 13th century to become a hotel. Just another reason to visit Italy!
You may have all seen this before but it is still stunning to watch.
In 2008 ART+COM, the Berlin-based interactive media company built this kinetic sculpture for the BMW museum in Munich.
