We sit down to talk with BreeAnn Veenstra, the artist behind Wildship Studio this week to learn more about how she got started as an illustrator (wedding invitations, as it turns out!) and what she’s doing now that she’s gotten away from wedding products.
Fiber artist Sierra Cole combines both fine art and functional art in her wool creations. One of her most common creations are her felted hats, which she estimates she makes 400 per year. But Sierra also makes woven scarves on a loom, and spins her own raw wool to make yarn.
We sat down with artist Steve Uren, who creates everything from table and dressers to cutting boards, to clocks on the walls, to entire bedroom sets, all with lots of inlaid wood design created from Michigan wood. In this conversation, we learn about the process of inlay in woodworking and where Steve finds his inspiration and the role design plays in his decisions.
