Flashback: Swarm

When I first featured Swarm, it was back in 2009, after I found this video (which will make you want this man's job, as the then current buyer for Anthropologie, he may have one of best jobs in the world!) Swarm, aka Leslie Oschmann, used to be the Visual Director for Anthropologie and you can see the great and unique design, which is often seen in Anthropologie's amazing goods, in her work.  Combining old furniture with oil paintings she finds in Dutch flea markets, the result is particularly eye-catching.

Maker Spotlight #4: Amanda Anderson

One of the perks of my job at Craft Finder is finding and learning about new British designers and makers and Amanda Anderson is one of those people.  Her mosaics are inspired by folklore and traditional stories involving animals, birds and metamorphosis.  She uses stained glass in her work and I wonder if that is what helps gives it such vibrance.  

What's your favourite piece of her work?  I'm torn between the tiger and fox.
