Custom Walnut serving plates
Please catering a long time collaborator and founder of Arts & Lettuce dinner series recently commissioned us to design and make a set of special wooden plates. We came up with small Walnut plates that would offset a colorful serving and contrast the food much differently than typical porcelain flatware. We left faceted tool marks on the radius edges of each plate so that the chef, waiter and dining guest could all feel the distinctive one of a kind characteristics of a truly custom piece.
Product development & collaboration with Cryptogram Ink
We’re currently working on several new products one of which is called the Gradient Shelf. After several spray painted attempts we decided to try screen printing the color onto Baltic Birch panels which will become the shelf surface. We built a custom printing press for the guys at Cryptogram Ink a couple of years ago and stopped by to experiment with printing on wood. The concept is to fade pure saturated color to natural Birch and all the transparent gradient in between.
Be sure to stay tuned for further development of the Gradient Shelf and check out Cryptogram Ink’s print work.
new brand by BF : VILLAGER
Saturday, Ocober 20th, Brush Factory launched a new product line called Villager during Cincinnati’s City Flea market. We are proud to announce our participation in sustainable fashion and developing a minimal and eco friendly product line. The organic 10 oz canvas is pre washed, pre shrunk and free of all harsh chemicals and treatments that are potentially hazardous to our skin. In addition to no synthetic materials, all of the colors we offer are created using plant materials such as the indigo plant, walnuts, osage, and madder root. All of these are dye stuff that have been used for centuries but have taken a back seat due to cheaper synthetics. This natural way of dying our products creates a beautiful and subtle irregularity within each bag. Because of this uniqueness , we have designed a special wooden tag for each bag that has it’s own number according to it’s production number. No two are alike. The collection is due to hit stores for Spring 2013. Online sales coming soon ……
