Monthly Favorites

March was a whirlwind of releasing new work, celebrating great press, and designing my next paper goods collection. Here's what I'm loving lately... 

Watch: This mesmerizing video showing how Spode Blue Italian china is made (first discovered on Design*Sponge).

Listen (Music): Andrew Bird's new album, Are You Serious, is on constant repeat. I haven't really listened to anything else in the past 72 hours. 

Listen (Podcast): I've been learning more about the history of Old Hollywood via the podcast You Must Remember This. The multi-part series about Charles Manson is both incredibly disturbing and quite riveting. 

Read: An interesting read on "The Copycat Economy" in fashion and what impact knockoffs have on the marketplace and the original designers. I think a lot of the claims and ideas put forth in the article apply to the creative/art industry as well. There is nothing more frustrating than seeing a cheap knockoff of someone else's work.

Follow: I'm entranced by the detailed and delicate work of papercut artist Georgia Low

Shop: I just bought my first pair of Allbirds merino wool shoes. I love the premise behind the shoes and the thoughtful design. Can't wait for my new sneakers to arrive on my doorstep!
