My first foray into retail is underway. Hart & Sol Market is open in The Health Factory on Alcoa Highway here in Knoxville. A good friend recommended my work to the manager. The Market is stocked with a great variety of products from local artists and craftsmen. Here's a sampling of some of my pieces:
I also completed two projects for the Market. I made 1" thick H and S with a heart to reflect the Market's logo. Brooke, the manager, did this great faux metal finish on the letters. I think they look amazing. I want her to teach me how to do that.I
I also made custom chipboard tags for the Market's use. I think they will attach them to packages they wrap during this holiday season.
I spent a little time in the College of Architecture at Virginia Tech. It was there that I learned a thing or two about cardboard. With a little finesse, I turn something ordinary into something unique.
