Pillow Case Donated to 8th Annual DAM Fundraiser

I am excited to have participated in a fourth Design After Dark art auction and gala to benefit the Department of Architecture, Design, and Graphics and the Design Council of the Denver Art Museum which took place this past Friday.  This year’s assigned theme BESPOKE with sub-category pattern is one that resonated with my desire to create a designed functional object.  Creating art objects is always a rewarding endeavor, but considering that this department of the museum exists to further awareness of design, it seems appropriate to begin thinking about submissions to this event not as about making art but rather about artfully exercising functional design.

Welded aluminum, leather, wool pinstripe fabric, upholstery foam.

The pillow case is similar in size to other handbags, at 6 in x 11.5 in.

This ferrule on the handle slides to open the case. When carried, it remains in the locked position at the bottom of the handle’s incline.

Submissions were asked to be accompanied by a narrative…
