  • Meet the Makers: Shelli Markee and re-Ply Furniture

    Thursday night September 11 we will host two makers from very different disciplines. Shelli Markee, the artist whose wire birds soar up the walls at Click!, will flesh out the space with more flora and fauna sculptures in wire. Steve Lawler, a Tacoma woodworker whose reclaimed furniture line is one of the newest additions to the Click! showroom floor, will also be on hand to talk about his solid goods.

    Shelli's wire works are three-dimensional line drawings, capturing the essence of their subject without color or shading. They are instantly recognizable despite their minimalism. The inspiration she finds in the natural world is comes through in the familiarity of her creations.

    Joining Shelli at Click! will be Steve Lawler of rePly Furniture. Steve uses remnant pieces from cabinet shops, layered and pressed to create modern, beautiful, and comfortable chairs, benches, and tables. Steve will be on hand to talk about his process and inspiration, and will be bringing more pieces than we normally have stocked. "Making plywood beautiful", indeed!

  • re-Ply furniture

    We love modern design, but we don't love wasteful fabrication... which is why we are over the moon for this new line from Tacoma artist Steve Lawler, a former cabinet maker who now uses remnant scraps from cabinet shops to create insanely gorgeous modern furniture:

    e-Ply_chair2 rePly_stool2openend_hp2Yes that chair is very comfortable and yes that stool is available as a bench and yes that end table is available as a coffee table. And yes, they would look fabulous in your home. (chair: $670, stool $462, open end table $888)

  • Dim all the lights, and turn up the old Victrola

    Watching new product releases as we do, we've noticed a lot of "passive amplifiers" which connect to your phone and supposedly amplify the sound without power. You may notice that you've never seen any of them at Click!. That's because most of them look like disposable junk and sound worse.

    But recently something's been happening right under our noses in West Seattle.

    A local guy named Fritz Rud, operating under the moniker of Salv.co, had great realization: that people were amplifying sound without electricity years ago,  and they made it look good. Now look at what he's done:

    Longnecker600

    He's made CUSTOM iPHONE AMPLIFIERS designed to passively enhance a phone’s speaker, no electricity required. They create a warm, vintage sound, typical of the materials used from the Edison era. While more art than utility, each amplifier is a one-of-a-kind conversation piece that is both functional and beautiful.

    Fritz and his iPhone amps will make their worldwide debut at Click! Design That Fits Thursday June 12 during the West Seattle Art Walk, from 6 to 9pm. Come early, as you're probably not the only person thinking these would make a great Father's Day gift.

    All pieces are one-of-a-kind.

  • Lisa Hasegawa, intentional art.

    simplicity, focus, repetition - all apt words to describe Lisa Hasegawa's intentional art making. In her own words "...the process of art-making is as important as the finished piece itself." Holes are punched into sheets of paper that she has been collecting for years. Thread is sewn and the holes are burnished closed at the end of the sewing process. Truly a meditation in art.

    Click! welcomes Lisa Hasegawa to the West Seattle Artwalk Thursday February 13th from 6 to 9pm.

  • Steel Toe Jewelry

    This Thursday's Art Walk captures two artists in the midst of their evolutions: jeweler Frances Smersh is painting, and blacksmith Erica Gordon is making jewelry.

    You know Erica Gordon from her belt buckles: forged, welded, and fabricated in her Georgetown studio. She's taken her same bold aesthetic and scaled it down to jewelry: wearable, sexy, and strong.

    Steel-Neck-1

     

    Our own Frances Smersh continues to explore shapes and forms, not in metal but acrylic and mixed media. Think of it as jewelry for your walls.

    Cast of Characters

    Don't worry, we'll still have plenty of Frances's jewelry and Erica's belt buckles!

    West Seattle Art Walk is every second Thursday from 6pm to 9pm. View the walking map here.
