Maggie Austin Cake

I like to routinely offer a treat to cabbagerose tumblr readers.  It is my way of saying, ‘thank you,’ for stopping by and visiting my blog.  After all, when you have a guest to your home, you offer a little something to eat, yes?  In searching for sweet morsels, I was lucky to come across Maggie Austin Cake…her cakes are nothing short of inspirational, and almost too pretty to eat.

Located in the Washington DC metro area, Maggie Austin Cake offers a fresh interpretation of cake and cookie design. Exclusively custom and exquisitely tailored, Maggie Austin designs display symmetry, elegance, and sophistication with the subtle yet unmistakable mark of haute couture.

David Taylor: Walk the Walk

Risk lies at the core of crafts, risk of failure always accompanies new discovery, new beauty. In his forthcoming exhibition “Walk the Walk” at Konsthantverkarna in Stockholm, David Taylor presents a cohesive body of work developed by whim and impulse at the workbench. May I have the candlesticks, please.

Artist and Jewelry Designer: Lorraine Pennington

I love the look and feel of artist  and jewelry designer Lorraine Pennington‘s work.  Solid and earthy, pleasing textures and mysterious imagery all add up to…beauty.   Lorraine searches for a balance between color and texture.   She applies many layers of paint and will scratch, sand, and wipe away to reveal what lies beneath the surface of her artwork.  Lorraine is drawn to  “wabi sabi,” the art of the imperfect, and  finds it is often revealed in her jewelry designs and artwork.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lorraine through her fab blog, 2BMODERN.  Lorraine’s work is also featured on her website, Modern Surfaces Art Gallery.

Smile

This image makes me smile.  My middle name is ‘wrong way.”  I wonder if map heels would wash away this curse…probably not.

Hiroko Koshino

I am  in awe of the uber-talented Japanese fashion designer Hiroko Koshino.  Hiroko is highly regarded in the fashion world as a pioneer of reinventing traditional Japanese dress.  While her contemporaries favor the avant-garde, Hiroko creates wearable clothes based on ceremonial wear updated with more volume, natural materials, and assymetric designs.  Her hallmark is the modern reinterpretation of the kimono as well as gorgeous textiles and prints of her own design.  Hiroko paints; she owns a gallery; she is considered a master of calligraphy; and she plays the Japanese three-strings guitar.  You know, I guess when you’ve got it, you’ve got it…

Tadao Ando designed Hiroko’s Tokyo home, his first private project.
