The Enfleruage continues........

The gathering of the roses, the laying of the petals. The process of enfleurage is time consumingly fragrant.......

Enfleurage in Parallel, 2013

The Lavender Hinge have started their 2013 enfleurage, beginning with the  roses that are currently in bloom and then as the lavender comes into its fragrant full-ness, this too will be added to the shea butter bed. Currently the enfleurage is being created in parallel with a climbing garden rose in Providence and with civic roses in Brooklyn.

Legacy of Lace

Alice Palmer is currently part of an exhibition about the history of lace at The Dick Institute in Kilmarnock, Scotland which runs until 7th September 2013. The exhibition focuses on the Legacy of Lace that has been created by MYB Textiles which is now the only producer in the world manufacturing with original Nottingham Lace Looms, some of them over 90 years old. This manufacturing process is extremely labour intensive using traditional skills and processes which are passed on from generation to generation through MYB’s apprenticeships.

About Me

My photo
Lisa Z. Morgan is an artist, designer and writer. The subject and object of desire has been a palpable constant within her artistic expression both as a motivation and in its embodiment or articulation. Through her creativity and research Morgan examines how the value of provenance, of rarity and storytelling, puts into question or provokes our understanding and relationship towards desire and the desire impulse. Her focus has been how we may access, stimulate and touch the internal points of registration or the emotional dynamics of bodily perception. In essence she attempts to define and make manifest the feeling of feeling. Her work inhabits a space where art, semiotics, design and fashion intersect. Morgan is the Co-Founder of STRUMPET & PINK and the Co-Founder of The Lavender Hinge. She is the author and creative editor of Design Behind Desire and also a contributor to SHOWstudio and The Laboratory Arts Collective.
