The Apollo is an experiment backpack inspired by NASA’s lunar lander. The mid section is composed of gold mylar, the shiny substance used on the lunar lander to insulate it. The top and bottom of the backpack is composed of tyvek, a paper-like, plastic fabric that is durable and mimics the dark material of the lander. I also used trapunto to create a geometric structure on the bag as well as quilting for comfort on the back and straps.
The Esker stool is a sculpted piece of nature that is a unique record of the region in which it was created, Lacoste, France. This cedar stool was a collaboration between Nicholas Baker and Madison Heim. The lower section of the stool is a tree stump uncovered in the forest that was de-barked, sanded and leveled. The interior was hollowed out creating a small nook to store objects. The felt lid was quilted and free motion embroidered with lines that emulate the natural grain of the log.
“Don’t worry about the baddys” is a series of toys for kidults*. The inspiration of this design was from the idea of how heavy equipment creates a construction but at the same time destructs the environment. This derived the motivation to design a toy and an illustration. kidults* = ((An adult who participates in youth culture and activities traditionally intended for children))
