The Hazel Brown Collection - Sweetest Video Ever

Kathie from  RIPEGOODS kindly introduced me to this amazing video (stitching addicts beware, this is  overload for your senses):

 See the Hazel Brown Collection here.

 It is so inspiring to me to see that one could design a collection of clothes and do something that creative and beautiful at the same time. While I have been enjoying making the leather bags, I do miss making art and wish I could balance the two like she does. Certainly a goal at the top of my list..

Happy Friday everyone.

Constantin Brancusi's photos at Silverstein Gallery in NY

Beautiful photographs by Brancusi (1876-1957) of his work in his studio are on show at the Bruce Silverstein Gallery in Chelsea. I think of him as a modern icon and it's a bit surprising to see that he was born in 1876! But I guess "modern" is old now...

I've always liked a lot of his sculptures but seeing them in his studio makes them look even better.

So beautiful.. I never realized he had studied shortly with Rodin, and was introduced to photography by Steichen and Man Ray. You can read more about him here.

 And he was pretty good looking too, wasn't he?

The show is on til 6/23.
