The Confluence collection graced Forge & Finish Gallery walls for a memorable opening night. The gallery was brimming with fellow artists and art enthusiasts. Huge thanks to Candace Jensen on her curatorial debut. She presented a seamless palette of works alongside her colleagues, Sophie Brenneman and J. Hartz, each graduates from the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts.

CURRENT OBSESSION//HLH

forgeandfinish

Kimberly Frey's steadfast career with art education continually repaves the road of an artist on the way to mastering her craft. Listen as the creator of ceramic objects and wearables brand Happy Land Handmade explains the manifestation of one her latest designs featured here. 

In one of her recent quests, Kimberly assisted a colleague, Roberto Lugo, in leading a workshop on Mishima. The ancient Japanese technique involves creating layers beneath a carved surface, much like another technique originated in Italy called Sgraffito, where a surface layer is incised to reveal a secondary layer's contrasting color. The resulting pattern from both techniques inspired a cross-medium interpretation, which originally struck the artist through a textile swatch's colorful palette that looked pleasantly "random, chaotic, or like fireworks." Materialized through one of her latest ceramic forms, comes a set of sublime dark gray plates dashed with strokes of red, blue, white, purple, and yellow carved into the surface.

Happy Land Handmade offers collections in functional ceramic vessels and jewelry. Visit her website for updates and more information here.

Portraits by Brae Howard

Portraits by Brae Howard

Brae Howard recently spent a summer day with us immortalizing our latest collaboration with Bus Stop Boutique (see previous blog post/shop collection here). Crushing the wedding scene and capturing profound portraits are Brae's main squeezes, but more and more Brae has been compelled to broaden her lens to exploring new subjects and sharing their stories on her blog. She features local businesses that offer something to her existing clientele, while delving deeper into the personal lives of the people who run them. In essence, building bridges between people and their baker, DJ, florist, ring maker, etcetera, making new relationships feel more familiar. 

We got our chance to interview with Brae, and the pictures- so so good!
