When I was in LA I visited the studio of Ben Medansky (Thanks to Lauren!). Ben is a ceramic artist whose work I had first seen at the LA Art Book Fair. There were some amazing bookends there I kept eyeing, and of course they were by him. It was hard not to want to buy so many things right off the shelves of his studio! I have one little vase of his that I love, and have my eye on much more.
His work is starting to pop up everywhere.Check out his site to see more, or see it in person at Bookstand at the Standard Hollywood, or at Iko Iko in LA.

More photos from California. So many plants, I miss that here in Paris..
My recent trip to California for the winter was exactly what I needed, some much needed SUN!
I miss my community of amazing friends there, their enthusiasm and energy is infectious and inspiring, and I left feeling complete again. As always it’s hard to return to the cold and grey, even if in a beautiful city like Paris.
I have so much to share from California so we will be back tracking a bit here and there but all good things worth sharing I think!
This Thursday night is the opening for a very exciting exhibition PLANTS: Our Silent Guardians, by Lili Cuzor of Tigers to Lilies in collaboration with Lauren Spencer King of the Sphinx and the Milky Way, and Claire Cottrell of Art Bookstand who will have a pop-up bookstand shop set up, all taking place at the Standard hotel in Hollywood.
The installation and shop will be up from 3/21 – 4/21, go check it out! I know it’s going to be amazing! I so wish I could be there to see it! There are some sneak peeks on Lauren’s blog here and here.
Opening Ceremony this Thursday, March 21st, the Spring Solstice from 7:00pm – 9:00pm Claire will be debuting a film she made and there will be herbal teas, plant installations, artwork and more!
