Gift #18 is a gift for all seasons!!!!.

 

Founded by landscape architect Nathalie Karg in 2008, Cumulus Studios gives established & emerging contemporary artists the freedom to design functional objects for the outdoors!!!
Functionality & weather resistance are the only limitations!!!
 
These limited edition artists benches are spectacular .......
the only problem is deciding which one to keep,

#17 is for design junkies who have been around for decades!!!
Especially those who admit it ......... like myself!!! 

Making Marks celebrates English artist & designer Sue Timney's illustrious career,
& the stunning black & white designs created with her partner Grahame Fowler!!!

I was lucky to purchase & print designs by Timney-Fowler in the 1980's ....
& I am thrilled to share Pointed Leaf Press's beautiful monograph!!!

The influence of Timney-Fowler on apparel & home design is monumental ......
This book is a must-have for all design libraries!!!
