I am primarily a painter using clay as my “canvas”. Many of my paintings are interpretations of images that appeal to a sense of place and beauty, such as an antique loteria set (Mexican bingo) from the 1800′s, a seed savers exchange catalogue, and a California native plant identification book. I want to make beautiful pieces that feel like heirlooms.
I love these ceramics by California artist Rebekah Miles- they have such a wonderful balance of intricacy and innocence. To see more of Miles’ beautiful work, click here.
We are pleased to introduce our second collection of our in house line, UNIFORMA.
Uniforma is our everyday uniform; they are the things we wear, carry, and use. Uniforma is curious, stylish, and simple.
We value form paired with function, design as collaboration, and supporting small and local artists.
Our garments are inspired by women artists. Every style is dedicated to a different artist and pays homage to the functional and chic ensembles that they embraced both in and outside the studio. Each collection has core styles with limited edition additions and new fabrics.

Working in partnership with the artisan weaver of rugs, GUR invites artists to express themselves on this support with a very specific technique using the same materials with the authenticity of a traditional kitchen rug but now much more fun. GUR can be the first place where you put your feet in the morning, a picnic friend or a frame in your living room. Hopefully the collection will keep on growing with new collaborations, keep on checking then!
Thank’s for the support making this possible: Noia, Ligia, Julia, Ze, Gustavo, Claudia, Marcia, Lima and all the artists collaborations.
All the GUR are handmade, held in a traditional handloom, with raw tirela (rag), embossed technique or over layers of colours, finishing with basic sewing. Dimensions: 70cmx120cm Editions of each handmade rug are limited in sets of 50.
GUR focus on tradition, allowing to discover the expansion of artistic forms using traditional materials and techniques of the history and culture from Portugal.

Eva Roovers is an artist specialized in product photography. Through a carefully selected color pallet and with a delicate eye for textures and surfaces she creates playful but refined images.
In a bold colorful style she combines the impossible, what doesn’t seem to fit together becomes one in perfect harmony.
Without trickery, all effects are created in the studio.
Roovers currently lives and works in Amsterdam. To see more of her work, click here.
I love these illustrations Dutch artist Roos Gomperts created for Dutch Invertuals Collected. She translated iconic works that were once developed for Dutch Invertuals into a series of eight cards and posters, using Mono printing and paper cutouts. Says Gomperts, “strong and clear illustrations: the objects are recognizable but abstract. The illustrations have a strong visual language: a new typography.”
