* RISD

Posted on March 22nd, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Links.


I’m a Rhode Island School of Design groupie. I almost convinced my husband to drive up there for the Xmas craft fair last year, but no dice. It seems like every designer and craftsperson I love went there. So, how have I never noticed their store? They don’t have an awful lot up there, but what they’ve got is nice. My favorite is jewelry by Anna Chan/IMOOI. They’re stainless steel and rubber, and I love the bright colors and clean patterns.

But wait, there’s more! There’s an artist’s bios page just brimming with links to wonderful people. I haven’t made it through the whole thing by a long shot yet, but clicking a few links randomly brought up a letterpress studio, a potter, a graphic design company, and an industrial lighting designer. Motherload.

    Oooh – RISD! In my dreams that’s where I went to school… Is it that only super talented people get accepted, or that the school is so great that it can’t help but turn out super talented graduates??? Chicken or egg…

    Hey, thanks for letting us know about the store. I agree, almost all the artist/crafty types I admire/love/stalk/envy seem to have gone there. Makes me want to move to Rhode Island…..could be something in the water.
