Been wanting to try arm knitting for sometime and now have found two items, carpet and bean bag, that we would love to make. Berlin-based product designer, Andrea Brena, has created ‘Knitted Army’, a collection of woven furnishings using discarded fabric strips collected from textile factories in Italy. Fortunately, one outcome of Brena’s colorful and tactile collection is the revival of the art of arm knitting and crochet.

Heather Levine creates these hand crafted ceramic wall hangings in her Los Angeles studio. Her porcelain and stoneware pieces are inspired by the California landscape, vintage jewelry and ceramics. The featured artist on website, Rip & Tan, says this about what drew her to this artform:
“I started making ceramics in high school, but really learned the process and materials in College where I was an Art Photography Major and a Ceramics Minor. Clay is instantly addicting and a demanding process that you always want to be better at. For me, it took a long time to have confidence in my throwing and the skills to throw a shape that I intended to make. The process requires your attention from start to the time the kiln is open, so I think I am attracted to the process because it needs me to be.”
