The Baltimore-based artist uses her Etsy shop as a platform for sharing her studies of shapes and structures rendered in wood and paper. The simple materials are imaginatively interpreted as coasters, trinket dishes, and geometric models.
And I love Bravo's use of copper for these lean bud vases. While I couldn't limit myself to just one vase in true minimalist style, I think a row of 5 would look simply sweet in a sun-drenched hallway.
