Sword + Fern
Sword + Fern sorceress Emily Baker will debut “Water Logic”, a sparkling new line of conceptual sculptural objects and handpainted textiles that intrigue the visual and tactile senses.
For CONTENT 2012, Sword+Fern designer Emily Baker has stepped away from the role of jewelry designer and ventured into the new territory of sculptural objects. Tabletop pieces,textiles and wall hangings-jewelry for the home. Creating mobiles, organically hung sculpture, and intricate displays for her brick and mortar shop over the years, Baker decided to go full force into creating a line of architectural objects for enjoying and displaying, keeping to her mainstay jewelry materials like wood, copper, brass, glass, mirror and found ephemera, and using raw materials new to her such as concrete and silk.
Curated alongside Water Logic will be Baker's F/W 2012 jewelry collection “Memorizer”. The line features healing copper, hand-dyed wood in bold ombre colors,cast concrete,and mirrors that beautifully temper the object collection's fluidity.
S + F's Content presentation also includes PAWPRINCE-a solo adventure from Kerby Ferris of dreamy, Portland trio Lovers-who will create an interactive sound installation, with illumination added from Portland's Jen Agosta of dance electro outfit, LaPump.
