NADFLY & Lauren Michele Kasmer - thoughts & work

NADFLY returns to Los Angeles from Scotland with Glasgow Walks people going about their business in Glasgow city centre. The images are devoid of personal history or direction, leaving you wondering where are there going and who are there. With every one you find yourself studying the clothes and demeanour, searching for their story and destination.  The 20 people are hand drawn and  place on hand thrown stoneware cups, with white and green glaze with 14 Karat gold rims.

Lauren Michele Kasmer has created limited editions fabrics and unique wearables by selectively altering and reinterpreting her own artworks and collections as well the designs of her mother, Irene Kasmer, the pioneering California fashion designer whose career spans more than 50 years, notably the inventor of the hip hugger in 1957. Each individual wearable and accessory is accompanied by the story of its' past and the process of its' creation.
