we talked about what makes dD tick on studio sweet studio yesterday ---------------------->
"We see dullDiamond as a place to create objects informed by our mutual love of color, shape, scale and pattern. While this has been taking the form of jewelry and a handful of ceramic pieces in the inaugural months of the shop- we are more interested in the process rather than the ultimate form… For us it’s about the pleasure of making things- seeing the materials and arranging them in our own ways. Our collaboration works because we are friends who are inspired by each other and we hope this joy comes through in each piece we make."

spring was definitely in the air in rome last week. the vegetation is the first thing i notice when somewhere new and rome did not disappoint! flowers, blossoming trees, moss, grass, shrubs and brush. some intensely manicured and others growing freely...
march 8th was festa della donna which is international womens day. its customary on that day for men to give a sprig of the mimosa flower to the important women in their life.
a favorite/common sight: new growth dripping over ancient materials.
the pinus pinea or the umbrella pine tree, with its perfect canopies, is the quintessential roman tree.
