The August/September issue of ReadyMade magazine features a garden challenge that we won! We improved the studio’s outdoor area with sustainable features.
Photo-shoots around Tuscumbia and Florence offer such possibilities. The courthouse, churches, train depot and Main Street set the mood to tell a story with Billy Reid‘s new line of Fall shoes.
We designed outdoor signage for Ted’s Montana Grill. Ted’s was looking to create a presence from the sidewalk and denote an entrance to the restaurant. Incorporating two sided interchangeable banners, and making them heavy enough so they don’t walk off- is easy when you use steel and wooden beams 12 inches thick. Ted’s is a sustainable minded restaurant.
A new prospective client of ours is the St. Joe Company. Their community, RiverTown is located on the St Johns River between Jacksonville and St.Augustine, Florida. RiverTown is remniscent of historical Florida and inspired by southern vernacular architecture. The atmosphere created by the grand Live Oaks and hanging spanish moss was an inspiring introduction to RiverTown and the area of the St Johns River.
We love glass bottles- hence the warm glass creations and bottle trees we make here at the studio. Love Bottles are customized glass drinking vessels that make staying hydrated healthful and helpful to the environment.
In Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee is Long Hungry Creek Farm, home of the Barefoot Farmer. Using only biodynamic and organic practices, the farm produces high quality food using natural methods. The farm offers a CSA (community supported agriculture), Biodynamic conferences, internships and events devoted to learning and practicing these farming techniques.
Los Angles based designer Melissa Holritz creates handmade, beaded stationary. We photographed her work in Paris.
The amazing honeybee- we decided to locate some for our orchard. Observing these Italian bees’ habits is a learning process in itself. The bees are teachers of sustainability, design and community.
They are so busy this season- we may need to add another super to the hive.
It is always nice to know that someone appreciates all the work that goes into a design. Natalie’s book the "Alabama Stitch Book" is something that we are proud of. Natalie is an amazing designer, and it is nice to work with someone who understands design and appreciates it as much as we do. Some comments from someone else about the book. BLOG
