Art for The Fig House: Clare Elsasser

The Fig House project is wrapping up, folks. We are in the super intense phase where everything is getting done at the same time. I’m off for an early site meeting now, but I wanted to share with you the work of Clare Elsasser whose work we are featuring at the space.

Its 100 percent weird and beautiful … which is my favorite design combo.

Thanks to The Jealous Curator for once again introducing me to this lovely weirdness. I want to own all of these pieces. It’s just so flowery and pretty without being overly girly. Thank you so much, Clare, for working with us. We are totally psyched.

    Emily, it would be great to know where you get all of your plantspiration from! You always find the most interesting plants and flowers to use in your designs

    What a brilliant match…Clare’s gorgeous creations and your brilliant design brio! Looking forward to seeing your sure-to-be amazing design of The Fig House! P.S. Clare’s paintings remind me of one of my son’s favorite books “The Boy Who Grew Flowers” by Jen Wojtowicz Emily, I know you have a ways to go before your son will be reading this book but it is truly a very special one!

    They kind of remind me of René Magritte’s “Son of Man” except with flowers instead of an apple. And the actual style of painting is different. I really love them!

  16. Lori

    I bought a print from her and I looooooooooooooooove it. It’s across the living room from my front door so I see it as soon as I get home.

  17. So nice to see a featured artist on your very fun Blog. Love all your great ideas and how you feature them in each post.
