Earlier today I pulled together the above items for a client and snapped a quick photo for her consideration. We were discussing items for the cover of a popular magazine, which my work may just appear on next fall! While that is certainly quite a ways away, the collection of pulled items really got me excited right now!
I love the varied shades of blue, the elegant scalloped edges of the bowls in the back left corner, and the rustic texture of the modern trays. The irregular stripes are fun and bring in a playful element, while the items in the front feature straight lines and even edges. Without intention this quick photo captures everything I want my work to be. I hit a couple of my favorite, seemingly contradictory elements: Modern yet classic, refined yet rustic, organic yet controlled.
Simply, these pieces are sophisticated yet approachable, which got me thinking about Terrain's latest collection. Their Fall 2012 collection captures those same aesthetics and comforts, all with that beautifully cohesive blue theme. Below are some of my favorite items from their Fall 2012 collection. (And yes, I did include the Cobalt tray I made for them. I can't help it, I love that tray!) Can't you just imagine a table decked out in all these fabulous blue hued textures and materials?
