We're so very sad to learn that the shoemaker whom Siamese Dream Design has worked with for so long is ill and can no longer make their shoes and sandals... All of the shoes are discounted on their site so head on over and pick up what is left....

See the text at the bottom for the full story and link...We are very sad to announce that our master shoemaker has been ill for quite a while now. He is spending most of his time in the hospital. Our hearts are with him and his family. He was the Ajarn, (the teacher) to many apprentices over the years. We have found no one who can compare to his meticulous attention to detail and quaity. So it is with a heavy heart that we have had to make the very hard decision to discontinue our footwear line.
We are doing a final clearance sale on all shoes, boots and sandals for men, women & kids.
Styles & sizes are limited. This is it folks, browse the shop to find your last pairs of handmade vegan shoes from Siamese Dream Design.

"Small Turbine with Barn" by Laura Foster Nicholson
of LFN Textiles
artizanmade.com/portfolios/laura-foster-nicholson-lfn-textiles/

"Small Turbine", 2014. Hand Woven of fine wool with cotton brocading and metallic. 6" x 10", mounted on natural linen and framed without glass in a silver leafed wood frame, 9" x 12".
$175

This is a small study from a series of tapestries exploring energy production in rural places. Here a new silver turbine is juxtaposed with a tired old barn. I love driving through Midstate Illinois and seeing wind farms springing up all around in the midst of cropped fields. To me, a silvery, inspiring, glorious sight.

Cally Booker is a handweaver, based in Dundee on the east coast of Scotland.
www.tafalist.com/profile/cally-booker/

Her approach to making is centered on her love of working with yarn: "I can think, design, plan for months, but it is only when I am testing my ideas at the loom that they come to life." Her inspiration comes from the cityscape of Dundee, from the grandeur of its waterfront setting to the small details of quirky buildings and everyday living.

The second exhibition in our series of Mano-Made: New Expression in Craft exhibitions part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.

Monterrubio’s work is influenced by murals, prison tattoos, graffiti art and old etchings. His complex narratives explore the dark corners of the Mexican immigrant experience and LA’s tough contemporary culture. Monterrubio is a master storyteller and illustrator who gives new relevance to the ancient tradition of the decorated ceramic vessel. Melding stylistic elements of Mexican mural painting with his artistic origins as a graffiti artist, Gerardo breathes new life to clay forms.

Monterrubio was born in Oaxaca, Mexico. After obtaining a BFA in Ceramic Arts from California State University, Long Beach, he received his MFA from UCLA and currently teaches at Long Beach City College. His work is in the American Museum of Ceramic Art (Pomona, CA) and a few select private collections.

This exhibition is part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.

Khadi & Co is a collection by Danish designer Bess Nielsen inspired by Mahatma Gandi's Swadeshi, a movement promoting Indian goods he started in 1918. When she founded Khadi and Co in 2004, Nielsen wished to convey the true spirit of khadi, and promote the remarkable skills of Indian weavers. Khadi & Co products are made with Indian textile techniques such as block printing, ikat weaving and tie dye, but the simple, modern style comes from her Scandinavian background. With silks, wools and cottons, Bess has produced a selection of homeware, clothing and accessories that blend her Nordic heritage with her passion for India. Enjoy 20% off for a limited time on our website with the code KHADI20.
