Julie Moon: Acid Garden Exhibition At Birch Contemporary

Julie Moon’s exhibition “Acid Garden” at Birch Contemporary has been extended through to January 26th, 2019. I popped in to see it last week and I loved seeing her sculptures up close—those textures! the colours. I’m more familiar with her wearables (her pins and earrings are amazing!) and had never seen her sculptures in person. If…

Grace Eunmi Lee’s Dust Installation at the Art Gallery of Burlington

This woman. I tell ya, just incredible. I got out to the Art Gallery of Burlington a few nights ago to see Grace Eunmi Lee’s Dust installation, on display until April 17th 2016. I’ve never seen anything like it (which isn’t surprising knowing Grace’s work). It’s beautiful. Humble, but grand. I’d love to see something like this…

Etsy Finds August 2014

Etsy is a wonderful place. But man, it’s overwhelming. I honestly can’t stand scrolling through it, but then there are those really great finds that make the pages of tea cozies worth it.

When I first saw Grace Eunmi Lee‘s work a year ago it went against everything I assumed about ceramics. Her little…

Ying Gao at The Textile Museum of Canada

Effortless, weightless, other-wordly, and sometimes so intricate they look simple. Those are a few things that strike me about Ying Gao‘s fashions. I remember seeing this article on Design Milk about Ying Gao’s interactive dresses last summer and being stunned – dresses with eye tracking technology that move in response to your gaze?! So delicate, so unassuming,…

Hoi Bo Wet Waxed Mini

Happy Birthday to me, indeed. After a lengthy Instagram fuelled love affair I’ve finally invested in a Hoi Bo handbag. The attraction is pretty self explanatory – simple lines yet unique styles, wonderfully functional, and handmade in Toronto using gorgeous exotic materials (think kangaroo, lambskin). Designer Sarra Tang is really, seriously good at what she does. I’m…
