Art For Home, Kitchen, Body – Made in the Northwest

This week, new art for home, kitchen, body has arrived – and it’s made right here in our own backyard! No, you won’t find these items in a mall. Ever. Northwest artists making lovely things for our Northwest lovers.

Art For Home

Now retired, former Mukilteo schools art teacher Rolf Oversvee heads out to a great view, gets out his painting gear, and paints the scene. This is a larger painting, measuring 24″ x 48″ – often the perfect size for above a fireplace or sofa. His use of warm and cool tones together create cheerful yet peaceful works that celebrate the natural beauty of our surroundings. $998.

Art For Kitchen

We are thrilled to welcome a new artist to MaJe Gallery this week – Debbie Tomassi (from Seattle) brings her linen tea towels to Edmonds. And these aren’t just any tea towels either. ┬áStarting with an original painting, Debbie prints that image onto linen using ink with intense saturation to capture all her glorious colors. Precision is key, so lining up the image properly is just one step in the process. Once printed, Debbie then hand-finishes the edges and seals it all in to create a luxurious, vibrant linen tea towel that will withstand many washings and bring you joy for years to come.

We have five┬ádesigns in Debbie’s delightful tea towels for you to enjoy. Art for home, kitchen, body likes to offer options!

This time on the left we have a bluebird belting out a lovely song, while on the right we have a whole crazy flower festival! 100% linen towels are dyed with high saturation, and each towel is meticulously hand-finished. Great quality and just $28 each.

Everett’s Susie Howell just delivered a dozen fingerless gloves, or “glovelettes” as she calls them. Starting with cast-off cashmere sweaters, Susie repurposes them to make unique wearable art that often includes vintage treasures from her private collection like these lovely buttons here on the moss green cashmere. Just $48. (Update: This pair now sold)

Our outfit of the week features the Megan Wrap

We do love our black here in the Pacific Northwest, but a splash of color can be such a lovely thing. Check out the newest wrap from Florida’s Inside Out Everyday. In rich tones of magenta, teal, and olive with accents of charcoal and black, you can throw this on over whatever black basics you have in the closet and turn the day into a sunny one. Made of rayon, it’s machine washable too.
