Gift #18 is a gift for all seasons!!!!.

 

Founded by landscape architect Nathalie Karg in 2008, Cumulus Studios gives established & emerging contemporary artists the freedom to design functional objects for the outdoors!!!
Functionality & weather resistance are the only limitations!!!
 
These limited edition artists benches are spectacular .......
the only problem is deciding which one to keep,
& who to give the others too!!!!

#17 is for design junkies who have been around for decades!!!
Especially those who admit it ......... like myself!!! 

Making Marks celebrates English artist & designer Sue Timney's illustrious career,
& the stunning black & white designs created with her partner Grahame Fowler!!!

I was lucky to purchase & print designs by Timney-Fowler in the 1980's ....
& I am thrilled to share Pointed Leaf Press's beautiful monograph!!!

The influence of Timney-Fowler on apparel & home design is monumental ......
This book is a must-have for all design libraries!!!

#14  is a gift that should certainly be under my tree!!!!

 

Artist Carmen McLeod has emerged onto the NYC art scene with a soft bang!!!! 
Her work is quietly dynamic ....
crossing traditional boundaries of painting & sculpture.
Her first solo exhibition for CRG Gallery is their "booth" at the VIP Art Fair.

 

Carmen is an immediate "hurry, must see" .....
And if you're very lucky there might even be a piece to buy!!!!
