local artist spotlight: katrine hildebrandt

Our latest installation in the 12stairs gallery is up, and we’re giddy with excitement! We’re all longtime fans of Katrine Hildebrandt’s work here in the shop! This is Katrine’s second show with us, and we can’t wait to share her new body of work with you all. This creative installation was curated by Anna Schindelar.

Katrine’s work is made by burning, cutting, and sewing detailed patterns that “mediate on the correlation between chaos and order, permanence and transience, and the interconnectivity of the universe”. Her work is inspired by “sacred geometry and the metaphysical mapping of space and time”.

The show will continue through the spring and we hope you’ll stop by and enjoy it. Call or e-mail with any questions regarding availability and pricing. {photos by Amber Hakim}

We’ve got our eyes set on Spring with our newest pillow line! Bunglo is a colorful line of decorative pillows made right in Austin, TX. These hand-painted textiles are inspired by designer Shay Spaniola’s travels. A mix of colors, patterns, and visual textures are used to create a beautiful and eclectic line perfect for an array of spaces! We love the soft color palette for welcoming the change of season, and we’re delighted to have this new line in the shop. Stop by to see our collection and samples! {photos by Amber Hakim}
