mariana tocornal

by Grace Bonney

good morning! i wanted to start today with a little eye candy from chilean artist mariana tocornal. mariana is going to be showing her work at ICFF this may (i can’t wait for the shows this spring!) but before we get a glimpse at her work in person i wanted to post these beautiful beeswax books. something about the texture of those glossy pages has me mesmerized this morning. an overwhelmed by a desire to turn the pages and feel that waxy texture with my fingers. hopefully mariana will bring one to the show for people to see- although i imagine all those hands would melt or damage the wax. so for now, i’ll keep my browsing online. click here to check out more of mariana’s work online.

*over at the d*s guest blog simone has a great post about turning closets into home offices– great for the small space dweller. click here to check out all of her ideas.
