Some of the designers and makers of Dobbin Mews, where I have my studio in Brooklyn have gotten together to open an online holiday shop. Everything you see has been hand made in Brooklyn. (I’ve already put my order in for one of Lissa P’s hats.)

Beta Spaces in Bushwick

Posted in Art by Shannon South on November 14, 2010


We dropped by Bushwick today to check out Beta Spaces, an alternative art festival where you can visit studios and see a wide range of local art installations. I think these bedazzled shoes on a telephone line may have been my favorite.

An ottoman for Jeni

Jeni’s husband commissioned me to make a leather ottoman for her birthday. I found a really nice distressed leather trench coat to cover it with and I think it came out really well.

Gorgeous handmade bikes by Horse Cycles

I think I’m in love with this bicycle. Thomas Callahan of Horse Cycles built this for his mother at his shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He custom-crafts each bike to the user’s specifications and body size. They are really breathtaking.
