Designer Donna Wilson got her start making charming stitched and knitted stuffed animals – her series of “Creatures” – by hand in her London studio. Now she creates a range of textiles – blankets, rugs, bags, hats, gloves, etc, and imbues her playful graphic sensibility into ceramics, stationary and other odds and ends. Her piechart patchwork rug is one of her great new designs for babies, woven from 100% soft lambswool.

Bookshelf: What We’re Reading

books

There’s a lot happening these days at Wert&Co.–reflected in six books we would like to share with you. We’ve been preparing for a few talks and seeking to understand ourselves and our work more deeply, finding inspiration from the self discovery of childhood to the wisdom (hopefully) gained over the years. This month we also mourned the loss of John Berger who’s seminal Ways of Seeing provided us not just with a tool to view art in a revolutionary way, but a tool to understand critically the images that surround us. Finally with data ruling the day, in both politics and our work, we’ve found ourselves recently in a deep dive on both the mechanics, design and ethics of this fascinating subject.

 

Oh yes, the planet is sublime!

I have a crazy,
crazy love of things.
I like pliers,
and scissors.
I love
cups,
rings,
and bowls –
not to speak, of course,
of hats.
I love
all things,
not just
the grandest,
also
the
infinite-
ly
small–
thimbles,
spurs,
plates,
and flower vases.
Oh yes,
the planet
is sublime!
