Cameron Tiede –- Scrambled Wood Reveal: Auggie



Oooh. Here’s a look at the first figure in Cameron Tiede’s upcoming  Scrambled Wood series (previewed), debuting at DesignerCon (11.8-11.9).   Auggie features inlaid wood  detail and four points of articulation through the wizardry of magnetism (neck, shoulders, and waist).  Cameron hand-crafted the limited-edition figures from four hard woods (Walnut, Cherry, Maple, and Padauk) in their natural state, using only oil and wax to condition the surface.    Auggie has a fun, retro appeal and we’re curious to meet his other three buddies to be revealed daily through Thursday.  Cameron has done a nice job with his new  Wood Candy Workshop brand, first with  last year’s Chester, intricate one-offs throughout the year, and now Scrambled Wood.

Amanda Visell x Coarse -- ‘First Days of Despair’ for Blooom Art Fair


Boom.  A few days ago Amanda Visell sent out a flier for her upcoming collaboration with the alchemists at Coarse for the Bloom Art Fair in Cologne, Germany [10.24 – 10.27].  Little did we know that the flier painting of a house-phunt ablaze was going to be the basis for a crazy large-scale resin sculpture.

‘First Days of Despair’ revisits the theme of wide-eyed, seemingly innocent children wreaking havoc captured nicely by their previous collaborative piece -- ‘The Last Day of Autumn’.  Rather than simply translating Amanda’s painting into 3D, Coarse sculpted the ‘house’  piece in their own aesthetic, making it a true collaborative effort.  

Several of Amanda’s paintings, this sculpture and perhaps more (!) will be on display at the Art Scouting Gallery’s booth (BL-B010) at the fair.
