New cards by Sigrid Olsen art

We're excited to showcase a new line of locally-made cards by Sigrid Olsen of Gloucester, Mass. Sigrid creates wonderful, color-saturated block prints and paintings; and prints card reproductions. We love them and hope you do too!

Visit to RSID/works

RISD/works was awesome -- On a recent trip to RI, we stopped by the Rhode Island School of Design gift shop. All items made by RISD alumni. As always I was especially drawn to pottery -- particularly Loren Chen and Asya Palatova. And Herman Yu cards. Other functional modern pieces too, and lots of jewelry. Good to see one of our jewelry artists in their cases too: Devienna Anggraini. Great shop!
