the art of being literal

I usually have an issue with art that is too literal. If an object is too busy trying to be something that it obviously is not, it usually loses the opportunity of representing the qualities of that which it could have been. But I don’t have issue with these lovely things by Selvedgehouse – literal or not, the baboushka dolls are such little darlings. And on a thundery night like this, I wouldn’t mind the hippo of a pillow to hide with me under the duvet.

  1. Thank you for your lovely words about our Selvedge House things.
    We hope you had a great time at Finders Keepers – it sure was an excellent weekend. And you’ve done a good round up of some of the talent there.
