Biomorphic Art on Etsy

Today I decided to post work by artists on Etsy that have a organic feel. I would love to own all of these creations!  

Fabbiz is a design studio where two friends, Foo a graphic designer, and Bim a textile designer, work together. They are Thai and live in Bangkok. The work below, Stack,  is a piece of embroidery art and was inspired by stacked rocks in the woods. Absolutely beautiful.

Focuslineart is work by Tracy Melton, a full time artist based in Asheville, NC. The piece below is made from slices of elm and painted with acrylic. I love how the growth rings are accentuated with paint. The work maintains an organic feel while surprising you with bursts of color.



Paperfaerie is work by Yvette Hawkins, an artist and writer living in the North East of England. Her piece below, Cone Book Sculpture,  is made from a recycled paperback novel! The book sculpture is individually hand folded and takes hours to complete. Delicate and beautiful.



Nfall2rt are handcrafted creations by Nancy Fallon who lives in Baltimore.  She creates knitted works, mixed media art and more. The piece below, Contained Series-Mini (Green) , is a 2D mixed media work constructed of cotton fabric, vellum, thread and ink. The piece is subtle and sublime. Lovely.



Elementclaystudio is a shop with ceramics by Heather Knight from Asheville, NC.  Her work is inspired by all aspects of nature. Her Micro Tiles posted below are made from fine porcelain. Pictured clockwise from top left is nini, lichen, durian and reef. I love all the textures. It would be wonderful to have these organic inspirations hanging in my home. 


There are so many talented artists to discover on Etsy!!

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years.

When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.

New Harris Tweed Patchwork

Just added a couple of one-of-a-kind Harris Tweed patchwork bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. It will be the perfect bag to pair up with your favorite fall or winter coat and add a pop of color to your day.
To create the flap I cut out squares of Harris Tweed wool and interface each piece. Then I play around arranging the different colors and patterns. That's the most fun part. When I am satisfied with the result I begin to sew them together. And that is how the patchwork flap evolves.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend ahead. Enjoy!

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
