In Vogue

I’m pleased to share that my cups are featured in Cottages & Bungalows January 2011 issue in their Retro Shopping section about Art Nouveau design titled “In Vogue.”

Art Nouveau pattern, design and architecture have been long-time influences for my work. Indeed, I started an animal series (mostly birds and rabbits, like the one pictured below from the magazine spread) about five years ago as a direct result of loving the repeat animal motifs in Art Nouveau prints, wallpapers and fabrics. Art Nouveau’s defining characteristics are organic flowing lines, curvilinear forms and highly stylized floral and botanical motifs. It’s peak was the turn of the 20th century, and was about making art a part of everyday life. Since that all sounds good to me, sometimes I wonder with humor if I’m a maker from a different era. I’m delighted to read however, that according to C & B, Art Nouveau style is *making a comeback*. Well, I’m ready! With Nouveau bells on!
