At a September SOWA Open Market, my booth was set up adjacent to Asmaa Aman-Tran, the creative of Hand & Fiber. Asmaa is a local Boston fiber artist and ceramicist. Her work, all handmade by her and all one-of-a-kind, reflects a culturally rich upbringing in Casablanca, Morocco. From evil eyes to macrame, Asmaa interweaves contrasting materials with traditional techniques and motifs that emerge as beautiful contemporary pieces for your body and home.
Sarah Gordon is a British textile and print designer. She's worked with companies such as my favored dress brand, Banjanan. Her eye for color and interest in natural, sea-centric themes is whimsical and dreamlike.
Currently, Sarah Gordon's Instagram page, Wondergarden, is the only way to find her. Hopefully, her website launches soon and I can get my hands on prints, fabrics, or whatever medium she chooses to sell her beautiful designs in.
Water and whimsy tangles with Greek Mythology in Luke Edward Hall's collection of tableware for Richard Ginori, Viaggio di Nettuno. Grecian statues with coral growing from the bust, Neptune riding a dolphin, mermaid tails and scallop shells for days. Dining on this collection will feel like you're at the table with Dionysus himself.
