Starting this month we'll be featuring an artist/designer/maker each month on stuff we luff. Our regular blogs about our studio, visual inspirations and fellow creators will be more frequent as well. We can safely say we're thawing out from the winter in Montreal!
For our first feature : Felt Works by Amy Burkard
Amy lives and works in Kelwona BC, as a maker of ceramics and felt sculptures. I happen to know her from Vancouver and I recently saw the wonderful families of felt objects she's been creating. Full of character and color, here is a small selection:
"Inspired by the magnificence and beauty of nature and my surroundings, I seek to capture the whimsical aspects and simplicity of natural forms. Creating with clay, wool and other materials derived from nature, I take pleasure in the tactile and sensual qualities of these mediums. My sculptural forms can be viewed to have a utilitarian and or aesthetic purpose." For more of her work you can go to her Etsy shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/amybgirl
