Summer reading: My mind is wandering, and I haven’t been able to fully immerse myself into a single story. I’ve been reading bite-sized pieces of non-fiction, of different shapes, topics, ages and sizes.
i try to avoid using this as a forum for product lust, but…
if only I could organize my thoughts and projects in the manner of the ever wonderful Gunta Stölzl.
“Fall 2010 started when we secluded ourselves in a house in Woodstock one long weekend. We researched the work of Sheila Hicks and female artists of the seventies craft movement. The collection is what the Vena Cava woman wears to the cabin upstate: pieces that read more minimal, American, seventies-tinged, and somewhat classic, but with singular Vena Cava detailing and a moody rainy-day palette.” —Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock, Vena Cava.
