DEEP 6 Fixtures & Goods

Yesterday when I got to my studio I discovered that I had a new neighbor—DEEP 6 Fixtures & Goods.  Joe Wiles—Mass Art/Industrial Design graduate and Vermont Commons School/Alumni has a shop that’s filled with funky furniture, home goods, a unicycle, art and so much more that you have to swoop a few times.  Some of the goods are scavenged and some are constructed or re-purposed in unique ways.  Joe has a cool “eye” for design.  You’ll want to stop in really soon.

You can see the DEEP 6 GOODS and other vendors as well on Sunday, June 12th at the Vintage Inspired Flea Market at 180 Flynn Ave—Burlington, Vermont—noon to four.  The Switchback Taproom will be open.  Cheers!

Here’s the link to the Flea Market: BTV Flea Market Sunday June 12th

CB Sacks + Jane Frank/Werkstatt = Pretty Interesting.

This is the work of a jeweler friend of mine, Jane Frank. Oh, how I love collaboration. This is a really interesting intersection of re-use, master silver/goldsmith skills and connections. These earrings truly reflect the intersection of talent and vision of these two artists.

Yesterday I finished the prototype for earrings for Kara Greenblott`s Company—CBsacks (cbsacks.com). She locally produces handbags from coffee bean sacks from the local “Green Mountain Coffee Roasterie” and wanted to have some accessories made out of her leather leftovers. One side shows her leather and the other the burlap of the sacks.They are framed in sterling silver with a french hook. Many more variations will follow.

Aren’t they cool? I can’t wait to keep working on different variations of the design.
