Things Made From Things...
Well, some people can't leave well enough alone - and we're glad for that! Many of our artists at Vitae up-cycle found items into something new and fetchy. We love that about us. Resourcefulness is such a wonderful quality. Indeed, it's something we can all appreciate.
Regina Smith of Esparto Studios, based in Fort Dodge, Iowa spends her days putting words together in the newspaper business. In her off time, she's taking them apart - deconstructing books to source materials for her artwork. That's a nice balance, and it shows. There's a clarity to her work that is undeniable...(literal even), which makes for some nifty gifting, as you can convey what it is you wish to say - down to the word, in fact.
