The Geometric Series is a custom line of tiles I designed that features fourteen unique patterns in the series. The tiles can be mismatched like I did for this powder room, or you can create a field with any one of them. They are designed to create continuous lines across identical tiles. They are a simple, elegant series that lets you make your own magic.
The entire series is available in 4"X4" and 8"X8" sized tiles at Clay Imports, here in Austin, TX.
The tiles themselves are hand-made in Dolores Hidalgo, Mexico. Each tile is screen printed, one at at time and then fired in huge walk in kilns.
We look forward to creating and producing original tile designs based on your project.
BeenBags are my line of handmade totes and clutches that have 'been' something before. We scavenge, design and sew every part of every one of them.
The exteriors are coffee sacks that brought worldly beans to Austin coffee roasters. The linings of BeenBags could be vintage sheets, shirts, pants, leftover upholstery material, even old wedding decorations. The linings, straps, even the logo tags have been something in a former life. The sewing takes place on what was once our dining room table. And while we work we only listen to covers of cool music.
All materials are sourced and upcycled right here in Austin, TX.
With all this experience in materials and fabrication we are always open to collaborations large and small. It can be a limited run of bags like we did with Howler Brothers.
Or we can apply our skills to make the dreams of designers come true - like the lighting shades at Odd Duck.
A fabrication collaboration with McCray & Co for Odd Duck. The burlap bags were sourced from feed companies. There was not a lot of variation between them. To prevent them from becoming repetitive I screen printed some bags with stenciled numbers to keep it fresh. Then they were hand sewn around custom wire frames.
Surfer dudes need to carry stuff too.
Howler Bros. contacted me to create a limited series of 60 totes. Was I excited? Totes. I used all of the same Brazilian coffee bean bags for consistency. And then spent some time mixing the exact Howler green that we screen printed on the opposite side.
Loved this project cause they make cool stuff and they are all just so damn nice.
What is outside of your home is still your home. Let's make a good first impression. Let's increase your livable space. Let's make a space that works for your lifestyle. I can design or consult how to achieve something special that looks far cooler than what you think your budget allows.
As Austin was about to implement the plastic bag ban I was commissioned to create giant totes that were hung on Austin's iconic statues.
Each one is hand made. Each one, one of a kind.
