Love the simplicity of these home furnishings created by UK-based textile artist, Elizabeth Cook. Each item is made from felted, recycled wool and reclaimed fabrics embellished by both machine and hand stitched techniques. She says this of her work:
“Ideas for my work come from observations of the natural world – leaves, pebbles and weathered objects and my interest in pre and post war British artists and designers. Inspiration stems from my sketchbooks as well as my ever-growing collection of found objects.”

Astounded by these intricate cut paper illustration from Pennsylvania-based artist, Bovey Lee. After receiving MFAs from UC Berkeley and Pratt Institute in New York the Hong Kong born artist relocated to Pittsburgh where she created her first design in 2005. She has stated the following on a recent interview regarding her work:
“It is important I express something compelling and urgent in my work. I am interested in many things but themes such as power, politics, sacrifice, and survival are central to my work.”
