I have to say, I think raleigh artist Caroline Boykin is really onto something. she creates dimensional collages by applying handmade porcelain flowers to canvases coated in lacquer-y resin. the result is this sweet southern charm power-clashing like crazy with bold bright modern strokes that shine when the light catches them.
I just love them, and I’m seriously considering a set where I could hang a large one.
this tuesday, we’re releasing 25 original works she created exclusively for furbish. there are two sizes: 8″ x 8″, and 12″ x 12″, and prices are $450 and $550. Jump online at 12pm est on this tuesday to cruise for a piece to add to your collection. I think these are really cool, and would make such a special Mother’s Day gift.
