domestic construction

i really admire the work of domestic construction in NYC and they're an inspiration for bramble workshop.  they do such a wide variety of interesting projects!

i love these images of their apartment.  (ps: where can i find a bat kite like that??)

new hermès windows

the panels that i painted for the hermes store in beverly hills went up yesterday.  it's so surreal (and thrilling) to drive down rodeo drive and see something that i created.

i can't believe how lucky i am to have such an amazing client!  thank you again tracy for recommending me.

dot DIY

i'm working on a fun DIY project for green wedding shoes that will be posted on 6/18.   it's given me a newfound respect for people who create DIY projects- it's so challenging to explain these projects clearly!  i've also realized how many of my projects involve a glue gun!

forms take shape

from a library in vermont to a wedding reception in california...

scan of an illustration of crystal & mineral foundation that i found long ago
the illustration was source material for these paper cutouts, for YEAH! rentals

the 2D shapes inspired sculptures made from balsa wood

the sculptures were made for a table setting designed by bash, please

i've decided to start a blog documenting bramble workshop's projects!  i'll post photos of work in progress and inspiration images.

above are two mobiles i designed for my most recent set of windows for hermès.  they were cut from plywood and then painted a cream color with gold edges.  the breeze in the store was enough to make them orbit slowly around the nearly invisible black string.

i'm really into mobiles right now...
