ECO boutique / Green Luxury
for the style conscious consumer

Laura Zindel is an artist and designer who combines her passion for ceramics and naturalist illustration into unique housewares and objets d’art. Her work integrates techniques from the Arts & Crafts movement with modern industrial design practices and decorative arts inspired by the natural world.
A ceramist by training, Laura has always loved to draw with a pencil. Her initial drawings on the surface of clay with a glaze pencil ultimately led her to the transfer process for creating commercial works; her drawings are now silkscreened and printed as enamel transfers. This process also lent itself to repetition, allowing Laura to create exquisite surface patterns from her drawings on a wide variety of homewares.
Note from the Designer:
foundry materialized from my love of industrial warehouses, design, and objet', vintage motorcycles and the men who ride them. i admire history and craftsmanship in old buildings + things, how they were made and how they work. the collection reflects heavyweight found objects, completely handmade and re purposed in recycled glassware with vintage motorcycle racing numbers. the thick recycled chip board box includes a copper grommet and leather pull. the fragrances have a darker more masculine edge and many are made using only ancient blends of pure essential oils. the collection evokes the old world feeling of hand crafted hard labor, love and passion, love and light.
