There is an amazing article on J. Morgan Puett in a May issue of the NYTimes Sunday Magazine that I finally took the time to read. I had been captivated by the photos, but the story of how she is designing her life and creating an artist colony, Mildred's Lane, in northeastern Pennsylvania is really fascinating. I had been intrigued by the photo of her refrigerator (above) but the actual description of the concept behind it is wonderful — according to the article, "Ms. Puett’s vision reaches even into the refrigerator, which she has transformed into a strange, constantly shifting vignette of fresh food, old textiles and unusual scientific vials. “I buy beautiful and grotesque foods and try to put them in a new context,” she said. A broccoli floret sits on an antique candlestick, a pomegranate and brown eggs in a glass vase, carrots in ceramic pots. All liquids are decanted into glass measuring vessels."

I can't wait to put this flag up in my new studio. I picked it up yesterday from another favorite east village shop, John Derian. I barely restrained myself from also purchasing one of the beautiful Cire Trudon candles that John Derian also sells.
It would be hard to decide on just one candle...but ODEUR DE LUNE and TRIANON sound especially nice.

I stuck an early version of the trophy in a glass jar on my desk and it reminded me of some of the creations of one of my favorite artists Lauri Faggioni (including the above jellyfish in a jar). Visiting her store in the east village was a one-of-a-kind experience.
