Sarah Jones creates these beautifully textured lamps and vases by impressing fabric and wallpaper into porcelain. She incorporates steel dress making pins into the clay to fasten the forms. I think they're beautiful. You can purchase them here.

The Crown Hill Dinner Plate, available at Watts Contemporaries, was inspired by a sketch of a peacock drawn by Keith Murray, Watt's resident designer during the Late 1940's and 50's, yet how appropriate it is for today.

Make Up The Wall, a design concept by Maria Kirk Mikkelsen, combines the use of aluminum stencils and stickers as a means of expressing yourself on your own painted walls, in much the same way a graffiti painter would. The layout is up to you. Keep it simple, or cover the wall. You simply paint the wall in your favorite color. Place the template on the wall and draw around it using both markers and crayons. You can keep it an outline or fill in as you wish. There are 5 different designs to choose from. Check out the site and see the different designs. If you can't locate a retailer near you (which pertains to all those living in the US) you can contact them directly via their email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
I love the work of Jennifer Sanchez, a Florida born artist now living in New York City. A selection of her work can be purchased at The Beholder. If you'd like to know more about Jennifer and see her most recent works you can visit her personal website, miss-sanchez .
Pier I just recently came out with the Caprice sofa. The line also includes a handsome chair and ottoman. Priced at $999.00, this seems like a great buy. I love the lines and the style but I do wonder how comfortable it will be. If anyone sits on it before me please let us know how it rates.
