  • NBO Members in “New Variations in Basketry”
    Traditionally, baskets were multipurpose vessels made from available materials suited to their function. In more recent times, as borders were crossed and ideas exchanged, traditional patterns, styles, and materials came to be shared internationally by artists and designers. While still honoring their historically universal kinship, these contemporary pieces have transitioned from solely functional containers into objects reflecting individual artistic expression. The twenty-one artists chosen for this exhibition have created exemplary objects that use both traditional and experimental materials, with much attention paid to color, texture, form, and craftsmanship. NBO members featured in the exhibition are Jackie Abrams,  Dona Anderson, Pamela Becker, Lanny Bergner,  John Garrett,  Gyongy Laky, Elizabeth Whyte Schulze, Deborah Smith , Matt Tommey, and Jennifer Zurick. More information at Snyderman-Works Galleries Image shown: Lanny Bergner, Fusion Vessel, Stainless steel mesh, wire, silicone, H16″ x W14″ x D14″, 2013 ... read more

  • Color Series: Shocking Purple Shag
    Yes….  I know….  Shag has many meanings and I purposefully used it to see where it would land us with keyword searches. Looking for the steamier side of life? You’re in the wrong place! We’re looking at color here and in this post, some shag carpeting that has some shock value. A Facebook friend posted a link to this house for sale in Hillingdon, Middlesex in the UK. From the outside, a beautiful, large, normal-looking house: As you can tell from the featured image, walk inside and WOWZERS! Elvis hideout! Or, as a friend said, “Prince has been here…”  What really got me was the bathroom: This is where the purple shag comes in…..  Furry porcelain just does not seem right in my book of sensibilities. There is much more on the site so make sure and go look at the rest of the pics!  Another friend once told me about a friend ... read more

  • Decorating with Handmade Pillows
    Featured at the top: Hot Moon Collection We ran a “Decorating with Textiles Series” on TAFA’s blog which has been super fun! It’s so interesting to see how each person personalized space by choice of wall colors, furniture, objects, and function, all softened and enhanced by their choice textiles. Pillows, especially, can change the mood or look of a space very quickly. Decorating with handmade pillows has several benefits and a few challenges. Benefits: Easy to clean: Pillows come in many sizes and shapes, but if they are removable and of standard sizes, they can be changed and cleaned easily (unless the work is delicate). I have dogs and I love it that I can throw my pillow covers in the wash whenever they start picking up doggy signs. I have everyday pillow covers that can take a lot of abuse and then nice ones that I use when I have guests. Affordable art: A pillow cover can ... read more
