Toronto's group studio "Studio Huddle" is having its annual holiday shopping event this month. I am very thankful to have been invited to participate in this show, with many artists I admire. Jesse and I attended the opening shopping night last Thursday, to shmooze with other artisans and see how they had displayed the work. Margaret Lim did a fantastic job with the display, and the mulled wine was delicious. I always love attending openings but I don't often make it to many because I don't live in the city. When I do get the chance, I try to spend a long time catching up with my craft-peers, and absorbing the quality of the work. There is still so much to learn and exhibitions are one of the best places to be inspired! I'm thankful Jesse is a trouper and joins me on these ventures, even when I spend the night chatting with other artists.
If you haven't had the chance yet, check out the show this month (it runs until Christmas Eve). I'll be there this Saturday from 2:30-6pm, watching the shop and absorbing the greatness. You could stop and say hello! The work is exceptional, and what better gift to give that special someone, than a one-of-a-kind piece of art?
I picked up one of Brad Copping's "Stumpware" candle holders at the opening (featured below, next to my mugs and espresso cups). I have added it to my personal collection because, well, sometimes it's nice to treat yourself (:
Studio Huddle is located at 97 Niagara St. in Toronto, ON. For more information about the show, visit my NEWS page for the event postcard, or the Studdle Huddle Pop-Up Shop event page
