What We Love: Winter 2020

February 03, 2020

I have loved the work of Carole Epp since I first bought a small cup from her for my son when he was a very little boy. The cup didn't last long (as most things end up being dropped at that age), but I  repaired it as best I could, and bought another small mug for him when he was a little bit older. Then I asked for a mug for myself for Christmas, and it is one of my most favourite mugs to use for tea. 

The artwork on Carole's ceramic pieces for every day use is simple (yet speaks volumes) and you can tell that the work that she does for her community (not only as an artist, but as an activist as well) comes from the heart. She isn't afraid to say what is on her mind, and often talks about how art is political. She is an inspiration to me, and I love supporting her work.

When I heard Alicia Keys perform this song at the Grammys, and I have listened to it every day since. Not only does she have an amazing voice and message in this new song, but she is an inspiration to so many people. What a beautiful way to lift people up!

This letterboard that is big enough for an entire wall from Little w Studio is on my purchase list for my home. Not only are the letters and pieces of wood that hold the letters so well done and beautiful, but it would make a great focal point in any room. Plus, they have a really fun Instagram account that provides a lot of laughs and inspiration. You can find them here.
