5 o’clock crows $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway


This giveaway is from 5 o’clock crows! Here’s a little bit about the owner, Sara, in her own words:

“Off the top of my head- my formal education is in fine-art printmaking- (I have an MFA from LSU, did my undergrad at Syracuse- surely more education than is reasonable, especially in a field with no real-world currency. Maybe that’s why I’m going at building my business- to make my own real-world currency). Just before I left for grad school I took a fibers class and fell in love. I was fortunate enough to meet a hand-dyer in the printmaking program where i did my grad work and I went from there.

My printmaking background pops up in all sorts of ways- especially my love of process. I’m also work in fine art- making object multiples- actually, there’s a bit of crossover between my fine art and craft work, both involve multiples, fiber, wax, dye.

I’ve been focusing on my craft work more and more lately because
1.- I want to build my business and there isn’t enough time for both and, more importantly,
2. I think that beauty + function is SO important.
I love fine art, but I miss the functional aspect when I make something that hangs on the wall. Not that hanging on the wall isn’t a function in and of itself, but it’s not “functional” in the same way as a dishtowel- something that can be used, touched, felt, related to in more of an everyday way. I think these everyday interactions that we don’t even think about create a sort of “intimacy”, or at least a relationship between the user and the product. “

Well said, Sara!
She is gracious enough to give one lucky reader a $25 gift certificate to her store! Below are a few of my favorite coasters and tea towels.
