Back from our vacation

We are finally back from our vacation in sunny Florida with fresh creative ideas and charged with energy to work on a new jewelry line for the summer. We have already created some new pieces and listed them in our store, but there will be surely more to come so stay tuned.

Also, next week we'll start June's naming game where all of you have a chance to win a brand new jewelry piece from Elle with just a little bit of work.

Weekly Home Decor

Outi Harma is originally from Lapland, Finland. About twenty years ago her move to the warm, multicultural city of Los Angeles became the catalyst that opened her creative expressions.

She started her creative journey by painting on fabric, making wall hangings and hand painted wearable art. This lead her to also selling designs to t-shirt manufactures.

Her next artistic exploration came in a form of ceramics. She fell in love with this functional medium that could bring her art and design to house wares and home d├ęcor. For years she has sold her hand painted ceramics in a Los Angeles based artist co-op store called Ten Women. She also has designed many lines of ceramics that have been manufactured and sold all over the world.
All the while she has never stopped hand painting her unique ceramic pieces. Now you can find them on line through her etsy shop right besides prints of her artwork.

“ I am continuously painting on different mediums and exploring new possibilities. One day it is the canvas (or should I say wood, since I prefer that over canvas these days) and the next day it’s ceramics... after that “who knows”. Last week is a good example of this: I painted a few pieces of furniture, a painting on wood, ceramic mugs and I am currently in the middle of painting original artwork on a surf board. You can check my blog for: images of the process in the studio, latest artwork and other news.”

If you are interested in the original paintings by Outi, you can e-mail her at outione@yahoo.com
