Our copy of this wonderful book, written by our peers, under the editorial guidance of David Bacharach, Valerie Hector, Ken Girardini and Susan Levi-Goerlich, arrived this weekend. A very ambitious project by all involved to document some of our stories and history of this modern Craft movement, is beautifully put together. All profits from the sale of the book will benefit CERF+, an invaluable safety net for artisans.
And if you participate in this movement as a collector, you have kept us going, and this is part of your story too! Pick up a copy.
History is being written every moment, and this week we bring our new work to ACC Baltimore, we are in Booth 1601
Here we are, visually. We did not submit a story, this time.
Ending the year with good friends, good food, art, and a walk on the beach.
We are ready to design anew, create a new collection!
To get the juices flowing we visited The Parrish Museum in Water Mill on the East End of Long Island, to see
Steven and William Ladd:Mary Queen of the Universe
Alan Sheilds:In Motion
and wandering all the exhibits in this wonderful space
Here’s a review in the NY Times
Take a peek at our day, or better yet, get there yourself before January 19
and check our 2015 show schedule……updated as we know!
I have often said The Berkshire Craft Show is my favorite show to do.
Kicks off our season in early August, and we are nonstop from then on.
So relaxed, and so much to do besides the show!
Here are some memories from 2012! The next show is coming soon, August 8-12
Tailgating at Tanglewood with other exhibitors, Tregea Bevan and Sandra Miller, after the show, before the concert.
Yup, in the blur, its’ Yo Yo Ma!
Who remember’s these lambskin jackets we did in the “80’s?
All One of A Kind!
Booked our whole year making these with orders from “The Smithsonian Craft Show” that year….
Who has one? Would love to get your pic in it!
Toshiki’s little girl, wearing her “Healthy Angels” Motorcycle jacket, made by Dad, sitting on a wall in Tokyo…..early ’90’s, and if a Mom can say it, how cute is this!
Spending this off season and especially this rainy day trying to organize the ten thousand plus photos that have accumulated in my cloud!
Hopefully I will come up with some good ones to post over the summer.
For today, one in our “Cowboy Series”, from some of our early years working together.
I was a weaver making jackets, Toshiki started trimming them in leather.
And so it evolved.
I want to say mid ’80’s?
Early Toshiki & Maryszka. Who remembers or has one? Would love to see your picture in it!
