Everyday Design: Human Hair

I’ve had my brain on the need for a hair cut so when I ran across Adrienne Antonson I couldn’t think of a better artist for our latest Everyday Design post. Not only is she witty and cute but she lives on an alpaca farm with her husband AND she just launched a clothing line that uses all local materials and labor from local craftsmen. Can you say WOW!!

Adrienne Antonson was born in 1982, in Gainesville, FL. Her mother collected hair in a small velvet box, which had a lasting impact on her as an artist.

“Human hair fuels my desire to give old things new life; with it, I have found a material that is beautiful and historic, stimulating and self-sufficient.”

“The meticulous nature of my work, and the repetitive processes needed to complete it, cultivates a meditative state that grants me the time to absorb and understand individual pieces. It encourages patience, and allows me to discover small victories within my process.”

“To breathe life into a material and further its course, to transform my preconceptions and endlessly reinvent my approach, these are my chief ambitions.”

What a wonderful ambition. Very simple, to the point and even beautiful in it’s own creepy little way. :)
