I had a nice visit last week with the wonderful ladies of Portland Supply Co., a newish blog here in town. We snacked on pretzels from Little T American Baker and treated ourselves to delicious cookies and cakes from Bakeshop. There was a plate piled high with Oregon Bark, my recent toffee addiction. As we sipped one of my green teas, Wild is the Wind, we chatted about fashion, music, jewelry, babies and more. I love the questions they ask their subjects on their blog, and so, here you go... more insight into why I do what I do. And why I find myself on this road to seek out and blend the best possible teas ever! Thank you to my designer friend Bobby of LiftLabel for connecting us.
Check it out...the photos are always so well done and we get to learn about all the creative spirits living in the nooks and crannies of our fair city: Portland Supply Co
House Spirits: A Series of Channeled Drawings by Coleman Stevenson
This new series of text and image works is the result of experiments in automatism, in allowing the self to become a vessel, receiving information from arational sources. Initial sketches for these pieces were composed in a state of increased receptivity, guided by a force some have term the unconscious, the psyche, the aether, or even a realm of spirits residing alongside the living world.
