Handmade Nation in NY!

Handmade Nation, a documentary about the current craft movement directed by Faith Levine (who was kind enough to include me in one of her group shows), will be playing in NYC's MAD Museum Theater! Yesterday was the sold out premiere and Director's Panel. But the doc will be playing this weekend too! (sat & sun)
Here's a great interview with Faythe Levine & Cortney Heimerl on Design*Sponge.
Also- the book, the blog and the movie site!

Amble Through Bramble

My friend and former roommate, Morgan Levine, who's equally adept at throwing tableware and building furniture, will be making her ultra-realistic crepe paper blossoms on the Martha Stewart Show this Wednesday! If you're not feeling crafty enough to make your own, you can purchase her barrettes, brooches and over-grown blooms here– Amble through Bramble. (The ones she sells are coated in resin so they're extra sturdy!) Martha and Morgan will be on NBC, Wednesday at 11am (this coast)- Definitely tune in!
Also peek at Amble through Bramble's Guest Exhibition to find prints and original works by Jashar and me.
