High on my to-do list is to go to visit a ceramic studio and observe an artist at work. There’s something so mesmerizing about the entire process. I think it would be amazing to watch the potter’s wheel in motion, to see hands shaping unformed lumps into works of art and to witness the finishing touches. One day, It will happen. Until then, I can enjoy from afar artists like Heather Braun-Dahl.
Just take a look at her amazing work, as featured in her Dahlhaus shop. Exqusite forms and gentle colors combines together to make practical pieces for a beautiful handmade life. Check out this video to see Heather at work:
Here’s the concept behind Heather’s collection:
Dahlhaus is inspired by the concept of connection and community within an urban, modern setting. Rooted in an interest in abstract painting, combined with a nod to the Bauhaus art and architecture movement from the 1920′s, dahlhaus strives to connect art to life in both a practical and conceptual way.
I love the idea of connecting art to life. My goodness, what would life be like without art? Not living, that’s for sure. Here are a few pieces from the Dahlhaus collection. Click on any of the images to see the entire collection for yourself.
