I really wanna...

See this exhibit. It looks oh so cool. I mean I really love lace as an artwork and it seems that this is some pretty radical and fun stuff. So if you are near Philly do not miss the opportunity run down to the Design Center and see Lace in Translation.

A lot of the work is from artists that I have featured here. So you can imagine how much I would love the show itself.

There is the super awesome industrial lace of Demakersvan.

The above Quaker lace inspired the super awesome fence that as been on the blog rounds for awhile.

And my total favorite Cal Lane. I LOVE her work.

I am so inspired by how she creates lace out of the most unexpected materials.

and Tord Boontje, who I feel like must have designed my shower curtain because it looks just like his work.

But the best part of the website is that they ask artists to submit their work and inspiration with lace. The "translations" are lovely and much to be inspired by so I am confident I will pull a few to feature here this week. Take a look.

The exhibit is until April so hopefully I can make it down to check it out before is goes down. Lace.... so lovely.
