Derby Headbands

Fly Away Fox now has Derby headbands available for sale at Salvo, in downtown Louisville on East Market St.  I wanted to show my interpretation of the big and bold on Derby by creating headbands with large flowers and birds’ nests. I used vintage and recycled material in natural colors like brown, orange, red, yellow and green.

Julia Galloway

Julia Galloway is a utilitarian potter and professor. I first saw her work at the 2007 DinnerWorks exhibition at the Louisville Visual Art Association.  I own one of her pieces, a tumbler, but wish I had more.  The piece I own is from her “Audubon” collection.  I love the pitcher and cream & sugar set below from the same collection. These pieces have gold glaze that compliments the blue and white etched tree and bird imagery.

Molly Hatch

Molly Hatch is a ceramicist based in Massachusetts.   She’s created work for Anthropologie and has participated in exhibitions across the country including the 2008 DinnerWorks exhibition here in Louisville at LVAA. Her work is absolutely beautiful and draws heavily from historical trends in fabric, fonts, furniture, etc.

I own some of her items that I proudly display in my home, like the blue and white bird ceramic glasses shown below. Her work for Anthropologie is the set of four glass tumblers shown below.  She also creates fabric patterns, pen and ink drawings, jewelry and furniture.

Rachel Mueler

I recently viewed Rachel Mueler’s work at the Tim Faulkner Gallery in Louisville, KY. Rachel’s work represents mythology, fantasy and emotion. The figures, though odd in appearance, appear delicate and soft in each work. Her mixing of materials (watercolor, gouache, and ink) and use of negative space is brilliant and adds depth to the paintings.  The photos included below are part of the Fuyapasa series from 2011.

The landscape and characters of the Fuyapasa embody the dynamic struggle between the self and other, both internally and externally. The Fuyapasa are monsters. They are guardians. They are heroes. http://www.rachelmeuler.com/
