Julie Richoz. Thalie.
The collection Thalie is based on a dialogue between an industrial process and an artisanal finalization. It is composed of a plate, a fruit bowl and a bread basket.
Inspired by handcrafts like crochet or knitting, I approximated the characteristic of the metal sheet close to a textile quality. The chemical etching allowed to cut a sheet of spring steel in a very precise and fine manner in order to produce my patterns. These two dimensional elements are afterwards manually transformed into volumes with the help of a metal wire. Thus irregular and sensual forms result from a first very mechanic drawing.

Mission Above All Else: LIVESTRONG Foundation 2012 Annual Report
Advertising agency Proclamation has designed the organization’s 2012 annual report which visually communicates the layered experience of having cancer. By layering different textures and patterns with bold colors and complex language, our design captures the emotional journey from diagnosis to treatment to friends and family support and LIVESTRONG’s assistance.
Polish painter Jacek Yerka began working full-time as an artist in 1980. He had several contracts with galleries in Warsaw and also worked for commissions. He cites Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, Cagliostro, Jan van Eyck, and Hugo van der Goes as formative influences on his work. His subject matter ranges from odd beasts to whimsical landscapes incorporating extraordinary architecture, and includes imagery gleaned from his childhood, such as his grandmother’s kitchen. Says Yerka, “For me, the 1950s were a kind of Golden Age… If I were, for instance, to paint a computer, it would definitely have a pre-war aesthetic to it.” Yerka’s work has been exhibited in Poland, Germany, Monaco, France, and the United States, and may be found in the museums of Poland.
