The Toronto Files - Part III

Work is always with me when I am travelling. My head stores impessions and is ever busy with ideas ready to burst into new creations once back home. Toronto is a vast city with many things to explore and full of inspiration. I especially get tremendous energy from encounters with kindred spirits. Last Friday I visited Kosoy & Bouchard and met with bubbly artist Michelle Kosoy. Michelle creates exquisite ceramic pressware. She didn't want to be in the picture but here is a peak at the studio-showroom that she shares with her husband, glass artist Pierre Bouchard. If you are in Toronto make sure you visit their studio and don't miss CocoaLatte a few doors down. They serve excellent coffee!
I apologize that there are no close up pictures of the products. I am posting from my sister's spare laptop that doesn't allow me to crop pictures nor haven't I figured out how to make screenshots. How I miss my Mac, next investment will be an Macbook for sure!
Wishing you all a great inspiring week and I will post some more about Toronto over the next days. 

Note: In Toronto both Michelle's ceramic pressware and my pillow designs are sold at interior design store Hollace Cluny!
