Amanda Bent has been a graphic designer and cartographer for 15 years and she comes from a very quirky family with a unique sense of humour. With her sister Robyn’s “teachery” writing skills she started designing greeting cards in 2010. When Amanda’s Uncle Dave saw her crazy cards, he commented that she inherited the “Bent sense of humour.” And so an idea was born: Bent Humour Greeting Cards. Bent Humour cards have been accused of being sarcastic, sassy, naughty and sometimes, downright scandalous. Their twisted (or, Bent if you will) sense of humour is mixed with cute little fun drawings Amanda designs herself that make sending an inappropriate card okay. Photo credit to Johanna Matthews.
The inspiration for these rings comes from various parts of Canada- the Shoreline of the east coast, the Rocky Mountains and the eastern and western Arctic. The circular nature of a ring reflects the cycle of our days and nights- and becomes a lovely metaphor for the passage of our lives. Allyson Simmie Metal Arts specializes in Canadian Landscape wedding and engagement rings. Her jewellery and sculpture pieces combine precious metals with select Canadian stone.
Maybe it’s because they’re both Aquarians, but Kiln Art co-founders Sharon McNamara and Paul Palango seem inexorably drawn to the water and what can be found in it. In the Fish Series, Sharon has found an Absolutely Original way to use glass as if it were paint. Each of the dozens of fish in Sharon’s repertoire are hand-drawn, individually coloured and signed by her. The Fish Series is art on the table, not just on the wall.
