From the Hosfelt Gallery in San Francisco.

like all of her work, these use nature as metaphor to explore human emotion. her inconography of trees, water, rocks, mountains, clouds and the stars and moon recount stories, or maybe it’d be more accurate to say open-ended fables. because even after you’ve deciphered her symbolic language, it’s never really certain what’s going on.
of course, that’s what makes them interesting… every viewer brings their own interpretation based on their experience (and issues). think of them as psychological landscapes. or representational rorschachs.
is the tree supporting the moon here? a gentle caress? a tender embrace? or is the moon pushing the tree around? bullying. holding it down. turning it into a bent thing… incapable of reaching its potential?
is the moon an obligation? a burden? you know the expression, “the weight of the world on your shoulders.”
perhaps the moon is illuminating the reflection of the birch… the lamp…

Lillet + Champagne (here)
Danielle (friend) and I have been obsessing over these Vincent Van Duysen Ceramic Pots. They come in many sizes, but they all have a tremendous presence and gorgeous mood. I LOVE them.
Reception + Stair of Italian Skateboard Company office. (store)
Just noticing how worldly these 4 things are… Travel far, live well…

I can be a little on the lazy side… If there’s one place to go and get everything I need, I will gladly do that. So, I was thrilled to find that 7 on Locust has set up shop in my local Mill Valley! And for any of you who suffer the same malady, don’t worry – you can be even lazier than I am, and access their offerings via the website.
I was recently in and 7 on Locusts’ owner, Nadine Curtis, walked me through some fave’s! Thought I’d share…
MANDELA: The Authorized Portrait by Mac Maharaj, $50. Silver Stream Pebble Table & Gold Tree Stump Table, call 7 on Locust for pricing, 415.388.9696. Cruiser Sail Tote by 7 on Locust with Recycled America’s Cup Sails, $49.
I love the offerings, but the reason it’s worth a visit is to see the artistic community that Nadine is nurturing in her space. Not every storekeeper opens up the back of their space for fellow artists and designers to keep office space and collaborate, but Nadine has embraced her community, continuing to surround herself with friends and inspiration! A meeting of creative minds is always a good time, and the front side of the store is just a reflection of how beautiful that can be!

I’ve been curious about Greenland for a while. From the first time we all learned about Greenland’s naming to a few years ago when my friend married a native Greenlander. It’s a mystery because I have no purpose to take me there and getting there would be an enormous effort. I design and create, so I wondered what they create…
The tremendous native culture there has centuries of history in their ability to sustain. Fishing practices have been passed on through generations and one of the oldest crafts is kayak building. Greenlanders have long been some of the best kayakers in the world, but should probably also be hailed for building some of the most beautiful boats in the world.
Cheers to maintaining beautiful transitions! Have a lovely weekend!
