 brass and blade… like the braided leather keychain attached to our room keys? brittany davis is the maker and at the helm of brass + blade; a one-woman shop where each hide is individually selected for quality and character, then hand cut and hand stitched into a one of a kind piece. 

carol austCarol Aust works in acrylics on canvas and wood panels from her studio in Oakland, California. Her figurative paintings are emotionally-charged narrative fragments infused with mysterious tension and secrecy. She often places her figures in precarious environments where anything could happen.

Sometimes celebratory, sometimes lonely and disturbing, her paintings express a wide range of human desire and yearning. Aust’s work consistently features strong and vibrant colors along with figures that are both engaging and vulnerable.

Through her own private study she has been influenced by artists such as Emil Nolde, Marc Chagall, Kathe Kollwitz, and the German Expressionists. Her work is represented in private collections throughout the United States.
