I’m thrilled to add another exclusive SSS collaboration to my shop, just in time for the holidays, and even more excited that it is with local LA artist Cindy Zell of WKNDLA. We worked together to create two wall hangings using the materials she incorporates into her work on a regular basis and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Natural fibers, wood, and brass = all the yeses.
I first came across Cindy’s work when a friend gifted me one of her pieces, and then I continued to see her work around town at some of my favorite spaces… Consort, and then finally again in the Parachute Hotel. In addition to creating small scale home decor pieces she also makes wearable art (aka, necklaces, earrings, pins) as well as large scale installation pieces like the one I am obsessed with at Parachute (below).
Cindy left her job as senior display coordinator at Anthropolgie in 2015 to put her immense talent into her own line WKNDLA and it has been so wonderful to watch her work evolve over the last couple years. Her sculptural pieces explore gravity’s influence on form and all her work is inspired by elemental forms, shapes, and colors collected from the work of pioneering artists, design movements, architecture, and nature. The result is a stunning body of work that is clean, modern, and geometric, making it a perfect fit for an SSS collaboration.
We created two sizes, one with ivory tassels and one with blush. Both incorporate walnut wooden beads and brass tubing that is hand cut, bent, soldered & polished. The ivory wall hanging also features a half moon made of spalted maple. Purchase the limited edition wall hangings in the shop now!
