Earlier this month, we were contacted by Seattle artist Catherine Grisez whose show, LICK, opens at the Traver Gallery downtown on April 2, 2010.
Catherine’s show features sculptures, photography, and writing about wounds and the potential beauty behind the healing process. She asked us to design a custom lollipop for the opening night of her month-long exhibition.
The final lollipop design featured ginger-flavored red hexagonal “jewel” pieces embedded in two kinds of lollipops: solid sparkly-white coconut-flavored ones, and clear sparkly-flesh peach-flavored ones.
We were thrilled to be asked to do this project and we hope attendees enjoy their suckers at the opening. A future post will talk about the design challenges for this project.
Catherine’s website is http://www.catherinegrisez.com/ but her work for LICK isn’t shown there yet. If you’re in Seattle during the month of April, we urge you to go to the Traver Gallery to check out Catherine’s beautiful and thought-provoking works of art!
