Marriage Material BY liz 05/11/2016
Cover 1
Even if you haven't heard of Molly Guy, you've very likely been to a wedding that took cues from her NYC shop, Stone Fox Bride (slinky slip dresses and crochet veils, anyone?).

Molly shared some of her best hard-won observations, which she's in the process of cataloguing for her upcoming book about love, style, sex, and marriage (ya know, just the little things). READ MORE

Got It Made BY liz 08/13/2019

Zoë Kantor might describe herself a ceramicist, but she's really an inventor. Through an intuitive process of R and D, the NYC potter created a technique for making vases and bowls that come with moving, interactive loops and links - a mix of functionality (you can use them as a handle) and ornament (it's like your vase got a piercing!). Hear all about what it took Zoë to get here - and where she looks when she's trying to get the juices flowing. READ MORE
