One of a kind, sustainable handmade goods are some of our favorite things. It is so great to support individual artisans and also own something special. We are so excited that different creators are coming together to showcase aspects of nature in our manmade world.
The upcoming Growth show presented by The American Design Club and sponsored by Fab, The Sill and The Molecule Project made an open call for submission of objects that can hold, promote and sustain growth.
Some of the creators have made a point to incorporate sustainable designs. Kim Markel, from Beacon, NY combined reclaimed plastic that she sourced from old eyeglass lenses, soda bottles and lunch trays with class and resin to create beautiful glowing vases and chairs. Each one is handcrafted and look as if they were from a magic children’s storybook.
Other sustainable designs include flower pots made from discarded concrete slabs recovered from old Detroit sidewalks and old repurposed wool sweaters. Each one is one of a kind in its own righ
Be sure to stop by 26 Astor Place, NYC between May 7th-15th and check out all the cool pieces. Its great to get out, support and be inspired by all of the organic creativity that surrounds us.
