I’m excited to announce that Upstate is back in the shop with a brand new collection that includes tops and dresses as well as a new kelp colourway. These pieces feel amazing on.
And also since gift season is quickly creeping up on us, be sure to check out Oui‘s beautiful limited edition ceramic garlands.
Hooray for collaborations! Angela of Oui was a customer shortly after we opened and now she’s one of our new Objects labels. I love that we can both say we’ve shopped each other’s online stores. Anyway, we now carry a special edition scented candle plus two styles of her awesome ceramic garlands.
She was so much fun to work with, and so dedicated to finding the right scent for our exclusive candle. Angela’s candles are typically unscented and she and I both detest conventional perfumes so she mixed the fragrance from natural oils. It has such a cheery, fresh vibe and the anise adds just the right amount of spicy depth. I even detected a touch of celery. It smells like the best herb garden ever! The glaze is special and exclusive to the Shop too, and pairs perfectly with the scent.
Angela created a special version of her Pastel Garland too and used beads with the special edition glaze. I like mixing the Pastel Garland with the Brights & Darks Garland. Such pretty accents for the living space.
Angela selected some pretty awesome things for her temporary shop, and I fell hard for the Peter Shire splatter mugs. Image below is one I took of it yesterday fresh out of its packaging! I love me a good mug.
Peter Shire is an Echo Park California based artist who was associated with the Memphis Group in the 1980s and whose work runs the gamut from sculpture to furniture. He’s also well known for his ceramic sculptures and vessels. I did a little poking around on the internetz to find out more, and enjoyed this short film on Shire by Eric Minh Swenson. Enjoy!
