Modern Master

Last week James received a an email from one of his long lost relatives with a link to her neighbors art work. The subject said something like "there are cool artists out here too". To be honest, I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised! The link was to the work of Andy Paiko, and I unknowingly, was already a fan of his work. I had seen it years before in Barney's "Gothic Splendor" window installation, which was also used in Home and Gardens Halloween issue. The installation was designed by Douglas Little, and the absinthe fountain was a collaboration piece he did with Andy Paiko.

These are beautiful.

That first window makes me miss working in visuals. It's so awesome.

These are great. I love Bell jars and the chair looks amazing. One of my favorite shops in SF called Paxon's Gate and this reminds me of it (they have bell jars, taxidermy, plants and animal skulls). This is far more visually stunning though.
