Here are several pieces from Cumulus Studio's second collection of limited edition "functional outdoor objects." Nathalie Karg has once again worked with a collection of innovative and exiting contemporary artists, creating a second collection of unique outdoor pieces. (See Aug. 26, 2009 post for first collection)
How divine would it be to cook on Nathan Mabry's "drum barbeque" ...... or play croquet using Mark Dion's "coffin croquet set!!!" And of course, the birds in my backyard would be thrilled to live in Andrew Miller's "bird condominium," although they would certainly be scared of Georg Baselitz's "eagle scarecrow!!!!"
There is no one who loves to "accessorate" more than I do ....... and being able to add my garden to the list of places I can "prop" excites me beyond belief!!!!! And there are even more outdoor pieces on Nathalie's website to fill the whole yard!!!
By the way ........ rumor has it there is a POP UP in the works for this Christmas!!!! Will let you know where and when!!!
