Functional Art: Intersection between Art & Design

BY BEATRIZ MAYORCA

Beatriz Mayorca took us on a journey in her search to bring art and design to the general public. A fusion of two creative vocations with the determination to achieve functional art pieces. A Venezuelan-born artist and interior designer who has been crafting different art forms: from sculptures to furniture & lighting design; but one of the ways she can touch the general community in a broad spectrum is through her current execution of public artworks.

Climbing and Beer

BY JOEL IRBY
@ VOL 4 ON AUG 08, 2019

During the 14 years that Joel Irby lived in Colorado, he spent hundreds of days climbing in the mountains. Every once in a while he would come across one of those great endless views, composed of layer upon layer of mountains, which eventually dissolved into the clouds on the horizon. These stone clouds gave him his company's name and continue to inspire its sense of adventure and quest for new beer experiences.

3D shadows of 4D art

BY HENRY SEGERMAN
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

Mathematics and Art might seem to be about as different as two disciplines can be. But they share an affinity for fictional worlds: both mathematicians and artists are permitted to ask "What if" questions, that aren't required to have anything to do with the real world. I'll try to explain a sculpture based on one of these questions: "What if space had more than three dimensions?"

A collector of sounds

BY WALTER KELLY
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

Nature, music, art, literature, architecture, and technology all serve as inspirations, setting craft into motion. Guitar is the principal medium of composition and expression. Learning begins and continues with listening and communing in a vocational manner. Formal studies establish the language and practical application. My name is Walter Kelly. I am a collector of sounds.

Tending the Roots and Closing the Loops

BY MARY RICHELLE WILSON
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

Mary Richelle Wilson delves into her creative process and life philosophy, as she builds a picture of the personal ethic that she strives to apply in all areas of her life. She actively pursues in her own life the beauty that nature inspires, a healthy human connection to our home (the earth as a whole and the local ecosystems), sustainable life choices, intentional community and relationships, self-expression; and above all, personal growth. She finds great significance in the innumerable connections that bind us all together, and goes about life with the intention of being part of and creating strong, mutually beneficial, bonds with other creatives through a patient and sustainable path toward deep and meaningful relationships in localized communities.

the words in my head

BY KIM TOSCANO HOLMES
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

We begin with chaos, the incessant drumming of a restless mind. A journey through emotion follows – feeling to the nth degree. Deconstruction seeks order in the confusion. Negotiation hatches a sense of reconciliation. Words emerge, carrying a fresh understanding and myriad new questions. This, for me, is writing.
