Inside the Artist’s Studio with Audrey Heller

I remember the sample meeting (where week where our buyers present uncommon products they’re considering for our line-up) when Audrey Heller’s fantastical photographs were first introduced. The team was immediately captivated by the whimsical scenes, and not a buyer could wait to add her work to our collection. Remembering the excitement around her creative pieces like End Well, Ripened, and my personal favorite, Bound, I couldn’t wait to get a tour of the studio where Audrey brings her miniature models to life. Since Audrey is in San Francisco, I couldn’t visit her workspace in person; but being a photographer and all, Audrey was happy to snap some photos of her own to provide a virtual tour of her studio.

Inside the Designer’s Studio with Jenny Krauss

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit longtime UncommonGoods artist and former How To Make It panelists, Jenny Krauss in her new Manhattan studio. Jenny’s space is a combination between a warehouse and mission control, where she sends out her vision to artists in Peru who turn her designs into reality.

A Humongous Pinterest Collection of Candy Art

One of the heartbreaks of adult life is not being able to go trick-or-treating. Sure, you can go door to door on Halloween night, but only with children, and you have to let them have all the candy. Boo! One of the joys of adult life, on the other hand, is art. Fine art, crafts, paintings, photos, street art, whatever. It's all good. And it's especially sweet when it's art about...CANDY!
