After finding a pair of Ben Seibel bookends I thought I had exhausted my thrifting mojo for the weekend. Janel and I took a field trip to Encinitas to visit a house designed by Gretta Grossman, after learning about it from Esoteric Survey's Instagram.
|More on this in a later post.
We poked around Encinitas for a bit before heading to one of our favorite consignment stores. In the process of which I found a new member for my Kachina family.
|Together at last.
|The store was pretty great. Here's Janel modelling a blanket.
|I can't leave brass cats behind. Look how great they look together!
|We don't pick up dish sets on principle, but this Block Chromatics set is exceptional. I had never heard of it, but apparently a set was featured in O magazine (guess I missed that one...). The beauty of the design is undeniable. These are from the Back and Beige set.
|Sorry for the photo quality, my already mediocre studio setup is even less conducive to shooting large objects. This is Three feet long and and over two wide.
|The piece is actually way less ugly than I originally thought. Butterflies aren't my thing, but this would look great in the right space. It's dated 1966, which places it just two years after the founding of Artisan House.
|It's even got original stickers on the back!
|We picked up this second smaller piece too, which isn't signed, but is clearly either part of a set with the larger piece, or just obviously also from Artisan House.
That's all for now. Here's a sunset since we've had some nice one's lately in San Diego.
