John Finch Design Studio is located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Artist John Finch’s designs are inspired in part by his time spent in Glasgow studying work produced at the Glasgow School of Art at the turn of the last century. His current passion is exploring the techniques of repousse and chasing in metal. Recent work reflects his interest in the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century. Each piece is made with hand, with heart, and with skill.

Romero Britto is known for his bold patterns, optimistic designs, and colorful palettes. His iconographic pop art comes to life in huggable Pop Plush CE tested for ages 0+ Raphael the Fish swims the seven seas. He’s your tiny fin friend who’s eager to please.
Rudolf Lopez began working with his hands at a very young age and began to develop his creative eye through photography—his first artistic pursuit. With an education in drafting and design, he drew inspiration from the surroundings of his youth; Rudy began his relationship with wood as a craftsman of fine furniture and cabinetry. His desire to explore wood-turning began to develop when he received a natural-edge turned bowl as a Christmas gift from his best friend two years ago. Since that time, Rudy’s natural sense of curiosity has led him to explore the techniques necessary to transform wood from a simple rough chunk into a piece of aesthetic beauty. He has the ability to look at an object, understand how it is made, and recreate it with very little effort. It is as if his brain is linked to his hands by some arcane memory.

Spathose creates unique wearable sculptures made from palm spathe (flower pod). These purses are a combination of organic material juxtaposed with an industrial edge. The application of metal: screws, nails, and wire, fashion the pieces, generating their aesthetically distinctive expression, where form does indeed follow function. Containing elements of surprise and jeopardy, the abstract forms are individually created via a “conversation” with artist and medium.
