Hallie Gray started Graymarket Design in 2013 after studying textile design and becoming fascinated with the hand-crafted textiles she encountered on travels throughout India. She is inspired by a minimal aesthetic, rich color stories grounded in neutrals and the beautiful imperfections inherent in hand-crafted textile traditions. Her 100% cotton scarves and houseware products are designed in Kentucky and printed ethically in India. See Graymarket Designs work here.
NANCY REID CARR
Nancy Reid Carr's photographic images are quiet & serene with a distinct focus on color, texture & composition. Her simplicity in design combined with the quality of the aluminum offer a fresh, modern aesthetic. The photographs on aluminum are printed using highly adhesive, water resistant inks which are then heat cured. The “whites” and lighter values of the image are left blank so that the metal is exposed creating a luminous, three dimensional effect. Nancy lives and works in Rhode Island.

Growing up as the son of a carpenter in West Virginia, Matt Thomas was exposed to woodworking (and construction) at an early age. For as long as he can remember, lumber and tools have always been a part of his life. Although his career path started in construction as a general contractor, his woodworking hobby gradually grew into a full-time business. Building on his German/Italian heritage, all of his work has very clean lines and an elegant aesthetic. See Thomaswork pieces here.
