So excited for this Saturday’s Kimball Prints Holiday Open House at Mockingbird Domestics! Join us for free ornament give-aways, holiday tea towel raffle + festive seasonal sips & nibbles! 11am-3pm
For the October installment of our studio subscription, Cathy Savage and I teamed up to make a print about something we’ve both been obsessing about: honey. Cathy has long been fascinating by the intricate dance bees do to tell one another about their food sources (complete with factoring in the angle of the sun and seasonal shifts!) and I recently received some avocado blossom honey that is so heavenly, I can’t stop eating it.
I started out making a honeycomb woodcut, using a combination of laser-cutting and hand carving. (Asel is Arabic for honey.)
And carved two bee stamps.
I haven’t done a collaboration in years and this was so fun! Definitely think there will have to be more down the road.
The snow has been piling up in my studio even though it’s still a balmy 65 degrees outside. These epic snowflakes are part of a custom laser-cut window display I’ve been working on this month for one of our favorite Austin stockists, Mockingbird Domestics. Can’t wait to see the finished display, more pictures soon.
Last month I moved into a new studio space at Canopy with my friend + artist Cathy Savage. Cathy’s been my art marketing partner in crime for the last couple of years, and we were both ready to take the leap, so it seemed like a natural fit.
Canopy is a new creative complex over on the eastside, located at 916 Springdale Rd, we’re in suite 218. Canopy has individual artist studios, gallery + office space and even a spot for a cafe or restaurant.
Moving has been slow, but things are finally starting to take shape!
Right now Cathy and I are trying to figure out when we’ll have a studio warming party, but first we need to finish moving in. We’ll keep you up to date on the details as they happen.
