I'm going all out with this Shark Week thing. Along with the giveaway I'm hosting through my Facebook page, I'm also planning on sharing all of my shark finds. For the next couple of weeks, I'll be posting art, style, and info on all things shark. First up is ceramicist Lorien Stern. I recently purchased a ceramic piece from her etsy shop. My shark is the photo above and it hangs in the entryway to my home. I love Lorien's work! Honestly, I really do smile every single time I pass my shark in the hall. Her work has been described as light-hearted and adventurous. What powerful words. I think those two words - along with the word simple - are my most favorite of all. I remember stumbling onto Lorien's site and just losing it. I loved the colors and the blunt faces of each shark. I'm definitely going to start a collection of her work. I found a wonderful interview with Lorien on livefastmag.com. Read up on her when you get a chance. Visit her website and etsy shop!
