It’s finally time to reveal the super secret project I was so busy working on this spring… A STONEWARE PLANTER for FOSSIL!!
Fossil teamed up with four of their favorite artists specializing in vintage-inspired art forms. Each artist was asked to create one original work using their favorite media that illustrates what LONG LIVE VINTAGE means to them. I was lucky enough to be included!
Fossil has been re-imagining the coolness of bygone eras for a good long while now – clothing and accessories that offer up some high style ‘past’ pieces in gorgeous & thoughtful new ways!
(Their website is amazing and fun to go wandering around in! Especially their FOSSIL.LIFE.STYLE section.)
I’m deeply in love with the Mid-Century aesthetic, so for this project I went straight to the classic chairs from that era for my inspiration. After a bunch of noodling around with my sketch book and plaster wheel… voila!
To see a video of my process, click here (from this main page, click (gently please) on my face). And once you’ve had enough of watching me use my exacto knife, please check out the amazing work of the other 3 very talented artists/designers that were also part of the LONG.LIVE.ART project, Dolan Geiman, Hatch Show Print, & Yellow Owl Workshop!
(Note: Residents of the U.S. have an amazing opportunity to enter a contest to win a custom letterpress poster by Hatch Show Print! You can enter on their artist page from the above ‘video’ link. Contest ends Sept. 18th, so hurry and enter now!)
IN STOCK TODAY! Standing proud at 6″ tall, this little guy holds a standard 4″ potted plant and would be delighted to help support your great indoors! (He would also be equally excited to hold your pencils & rulers…) Now go on, click here to get one (or five…) of your very own!
A huge high five to the Fossil team for the opportunity to work with them. It has been one of my favorite design experiences to date! (Thanks guys!) And a special extra low ‘five’ for Micah, my patient and hard working contact!
