~SAFFRON/TWELVE & UNDER
SAFFRON sells an intimate array of rare fresh flowers, vintage goods such as milk glass vases, second-hand clothing treasures, local art, and a lot of local artisan ware – such as hand-knit hats, and handcrafted jewelry.
SAFFRON – 31 HANSON PLACE in FORT GREENE, BROOKLYN.
KEIGO TAKAHASHI hands his work over to Tetsuji. to accommodate more artists, all with diverse works, and in keeping with the small storefront space – the theme of the show was: all the works had to be twelve inches or under !! the artists are both local and international – 36 in all.
no, not every artist in the show is of Japanese, or Japanese-American background !!
and, not everyone came in under 12 x 12 in. !!
NANCY SMITH, mylar-coated, paper photocopy banners – well, the ‘streamer ribbon’ extensions can be tucked underneath – and then they come in – under 12 x 12 in.
not sure what this is – but it must be very special – it’s priced at $110.
SAFFRON did their first full-scale wedding flower arrangement this past summer. must have been very unique, as well as very sophisticated, sweet & fresh !!
the opening reception is this FRI OCT 22, 2010 – from 6-9PM – many friends are sure to be there – including KATE CERIGO – who also has work in the show – heads up !!
we all wish Kana well – and congratulate her on SAFFRON’S one year anniversary !! and on her entrepreneurial spirit. of course, I’ll be at the opening – !! – and I’ll post a ton of pix – from the special night – early next week.
