bonsoir mes amis, ça va? it’s close to midnight and what with it being a travel and full on work day, i daresay je suis un petit peu fatigué…
i made it to high point and met with local legend, william thorpe.
he’s kind of my hero cause he has warehouses and a showroom full of swirls and curls
both attached and freeflowing on everything from furniture to mirrors to lamps and cornices
if he finds a treasure he creates a mold so it lasts forever and can can be repeated in different applications.
he’s got legs and flowers and carved bands.
not everyone is as passionate about this as i am but with him i met my match.
just being in the workspace is so inspiring and my mind starts racing with ideas.
focusing is almost impossible!
but i’m determined to hone in and tomorrow choose chair frames that we’ll use for the first collection.
and we’ll be taking some trumeau mirrors to desirant in asheville.
but that’s a whole other story. for wednesday.
i guess some people are just soulmates, not in the romantic sense. more like undeniable kindred spirits.
anyway, that’s the roundup for today, it’s a process, that’s for sure, and i am happy to say, it’s a wrap! a demain~
