Yesterday I went to the studio of Lauren Spencer King. I stumbled across Lauren's blog a few months ago, without realizing that we had previously met briefly at multiple art openings in town over the years. When I finally made the connection, and we sat down together in real life and shared a meal- it was like meeting an old friend. I love that.

Lauren is a talented artist and designer, and I was excited and honored to be able to poke around in her studio (I seriously lost track of time while I was there chatting and shooting...I could have spent all day there gazing at her work).
It's actually been a big week for Lauren--she was featured on both Design*Sponge and Daily Candy. She certainly deserves the attention--her sculptures are striking, sensitive, beautiful; she is an incredible draftsman--one of the best I've ever seen, and an all around lovely individual.

Congratulations, Lauren, and thank you for your generosity!!

**wink wink** you'll be seeing more of Lauren in about a month or so on this blog ;)

i LOVE her work and i'm fairly obsessed with her blog, too. couldn't imagine a more fertile or creative collaborative duo .... if this is hinting towards future projects together, then i can't wait to see what they are!
