This week three very talented women took up residence in the OSA pop-up shop. We have put in a few things as well, but since we had our pop-up shop recently we have tried to lurk in the background a bit.
Anyway, it’s all about:
Daniela of Rustique Guernsey, who lovingly restores and upcycles furniture and picture frames. Although I’m a wanto-to-be minimalist, I hanker over one of her pin-boards. Gorgeous!
Sally of Ampersand, also based in Guernsey, who is a designer with access to a laser cutter and laser etcher (sense a bit of jealousy here?) Her work is full of humour and is, on the whole, functional as well. The chopping board in the photo is hers. She also has some beautiful ink bottles with fabulous messages etched into them (“Stories yet to be written”, is my favourite).
Finally, Sarka Lee, a painter of Czech origin whose paintings are charming, whimsical and haunting all at the same time. I love her work. She’s planning a series of high-quality giclee prints of her work for those of us who love it but can’t quite afford an original.
The shop is up all week, closing late this Friday. Do pop in if you can.
