In the following four pillows, we were mesmerized by the patterns in nature. The stripes of a Bengal tiger, the spots on a leopard, the dizzying striations of a zebra and a kaleidoscopic patchwork on a giraffe captivated our attention. Patterns seamlessly continue to the back with a knife edge finish and an invisible zipper. For this season, welcome the jungle into your home.

Poetric Imagination - An Exhibition at the Portland Art Museum
The following pillows were inspired from art works in the Rinpa School in Japan during 1500 - 1600. In each piece, landscapes are depicted with lively calligraphy. Techniques involving the application of gold leafs were applied in panels that varied in size. Selections from the collection of Mary and Cheney Cowles are on display at the Portland Art Museum OCT 13, 2018 – JAN 13, 2019.
Artistry in Embroidery
The following two pillows are printed examples of meticulous embroidery exhibited during imperial Chinese Ming dynasty. In soft silk, the original textile works of art were laborious feats that involved several weeks of weaving and planning. Each work usually depicted an auspicious element in culture. Here a lion looks to the east and a lumbar pillow depicts flowers and bats in autumn.
Join us next week at High Point Market. These pillows along with several new designs will be shown.
