Go Bold with Artsy Goods from Pacific Northwest Makers
written by Melissa Dalton
These artsy goods from Pacific Northwest Makers will liven up your home in no time with bright colors, bold design and creative flair.
The first artsy good comes from artist Gina Coffman studied biology, art, and landscape architecture in college and graduate school, and her paper mobiles reflect her diverse background. Made from high-quality construction paper or cardstock, each design is a synergy of color, shape and movement that draws inspiration from the natural world.
Brighten the inside of your cupboard with a handmade, 8-ounce drinking glass from Glassybaby, a glass-blowing out t with hot shops in Seattle, Lake Oswego and Berkeley. The glasses come in twenty-three hues across the spectrum, from a vibrant pink to an iridescent “fizz” color to a more mellow topaz.
Adorn the nearest wall with the distinctive Floe Hook from the Portland-based Bosque Design. The hooks are hand-cast in bronze in Oregon and have concealed hardware, all the better to keep the attention on the shape, which is intended to recall floating chunks of ice on a calm sea.
