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 Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Freezing in Florida

I'm back from my week long vacation in St. Augustine, Florida. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest established city and the oldest port in the continental United States. My partner Tom and I stayed at a oceanfront hotel located on St. Augustine Beach, just 3.7 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, with views of the sea and the sound of crashing waves from our room. The weather was quite cool for this time of the year with an average temperature in the low to mid 50's but we enjoyed exploring downtown, walks on the beach and having an indoor pool and hot tub to relax in. The hotel had an area with a glass wind barrier that made it warm enough to lie in the sun, even with a bathing suit on, in 50 degree weather. Walks on the beach required socks with sandals most days, yes I know that is a big fashion faux pas but I made it work with matching socks. I must say that I did not miss the hustle and bustle of NYC at all and throughly enjoyed the relaxation and peace. Today in NY
