Weekend Favorites: Aged Patina

Aged patinas always catch my eye. It’s a way to see into the past and appreciate the artistry of people before us. With all of the technology we have at our fingertips, don’t you just wonder how they did it one hundred, five hundred, a thousand or two years ago?

The Open Studio yesterday at the Lake Erie Screw Factory was

Great!

Around 300 folks strolled through, with the second and third floor studios busy from 2:30 till 9 p.m.! The variety of artists was impressive and the perfect weather added to the high spirits of our guests.

Better late then never, here is a nice article explaining the history of the factory’s Open Studio from ClevelandIndependent.com:

Our open house tomorrow from 3pm to 9pm

in the Lake Erie Screw building (also known as the Templar Industrial Park building) promises to be a blast!

Besides visiting the open studios on floors two and three, shopping for the holidays and snooping around to see how everyone else organizes their space, we’ll have plenty of food, drink and a live band at 8pm on the third floor.

I’ll be working on a few projects….

We hope to see you there!

"Raw" walls are a thing of beauty…

One of my favorite issues of Metropolis magazine is the April ’09 issue. It features the Rough Luxe Hotel that just opened in London. When Rabih Hage, the architect chosen to rehab the 1820’s Georgian home, saw the plaster walls after removing the wallpaper and paint layers, he fell in love with the beauty of the rough hewn walls and their resulting patina qualities. He designed the décor around each room’s walls, combining different textures to complement the whole.

 Now how cool is that?

Here are a few photos:
