paper and clay:son of a sailor paperandclay:son of a sailor1

i am always so thrilled to see two designers i admire team up and take on a creative project together. i have to remind myself to seek out relationships that could lead to fun projects and ways to team up. paper & clay, and son of a sailor have done just that.

a limited edition gift set (that is almost sold out!) of a handmade danish mug and a handmade, beaded necklace with the perfect pops of blues and gold. just in time for spring! (buy a set here!)

tell me, what is your dream collaboration? if you could work with any creative individual (or team) on any creative project, who and what would that be?

    This is such a stunning collaboration! I just love the deep blues and hints of gold.

    Seeing this really made me think a lot about what a collaboration would mean and could be — as a painter, I’ve toyed around with the idea of partnering up with a stationary line, but clearly I’ve been thinking too narrowly! Jewelry, pottery, clothing, home goods…thanks for the thought-provoking post! :)

    I’ve been talking about collaboration a lot lately! With some friends, with an illustrator I admire. A fun concept and a sort of way to take some of the pressure off..there is more than just you to come up with an idea and a plan!

    I’d collaborate with you, Emily! Stationary and pottery? A framed print and a vase?


  • jessica + william

    thank you for posting this! coincidentally, we admire your work a TON around here! :)
