Media Benefits (Ornamentum, Studio Magazine)

 

Community members will receive a 30% discount offer from Ornamentum off the regular annual subscription rate of $20.

Published twice a year in May & November, Ornamentum is the only magazine devoted to exploring the large spectrum of decorative arts in Canada. From furniture and furnishings, ceramics, glass, metalwork, graphics, and textiles through to aspects of architecture, industrial, interior and landscape design, the decorative arts encompass fine arts, craft and the aesthetics of the everyday.
Within this expansive umbrella, Ornamentum provides a forum for discussion of the creative context and talent through which the decorative arts are born, and critically addresses the aesthetics and meanings of objects in terms of historic precedent, tradition and innovation. Written for a broad readership and extensively illustrated, Ornamentum celebrates material culture in all its forms and expressions.

Community members will receive a 25% discount offer from Studio Magazine off the regular annual subscription rate of $14.12 (Canadian) or $30.00 (International).

Studio Magazine offers Canadian perspectives on Craft and Design within global material culture. Published twice a year in March & September, with an ongoing web presence, Studio is the Canadian arena for discussing the complex discourses around making.

Drawing from our deep craft roots, Studio strives to articulate historical and theoretical contexts for Craft and Design in the twenty-first century. Beginning with questions of handmade artisanship and material-specific heritage, Studio also looks beyond to what ‘craft’ and ‘design’ mean for the makers and users of objects in an increasingly complicated world.

2020/21 Edition Collector Mug by ceramic artist Cathy Terepocki

 

We are thrilled to introduce our inaugural member’s collector mug, designed and crafted for us by Cathy Terepocki. Collector members receive one mug from the Chilliwack River Clay collection with membership and an option to purchase another to create a set (additional shipping fees may apply).

Available: September 1, 2020-August 31, 2021 (Value: $50 + shipping) Additional shipping fees for International members may apply.

The clay for these mugs is dug by hand from the banks of the Chilliwack River near Terepocki’s home studio. Her intention with these pieces is to strengthen the connection between individuals and their natural environment by making useful object from raw, local material. The clay was formed over ten thousand years ago as the glaciers melted in the river valley. Long before the area was settled it was inhabited by the Tselxweyeqw Tribe of the Stolo Nation. A portion of sales from each piece goes to a cause that supports environmental sustainability relevant to this area or local community project.

Cathy Terepocki has made her career as a ceramic artist since graduating from Alberta College of Art and Design in 2004. Until she began researching local clay she was best known for her printed surfaces and her design work for Anthropologie. She has taught workshops and exhibited her work across Canada and beyond.

Exclusive Bocci Tour

 

Collector Members enjoy a private guided tour of the Bocci studio, located in the Railtown District of Vancouver along with a “bonus” benefit presented at the end of the tour.

Bocci is a design and manufacturing company based in Vancouver and Berlin. Founded in 2005 under the creative directorship of Omer Arbel, Bocci is committed to fostering a lateral and open-ended relationship between creative direction and craft.

The company launched with one lighting design, ‘14’, which became an instant classic and remains a design staple and bestseller. Bocci’s growing portfolio of sculptural lighting is developed, engineered and fabricated in-house, through an infrastructure calibrated to provide full control over technique, quality and scale.

Please Note: Tours will take place May 2021 & attendance numbers at this event will be based on the social distancing guidelines recommended at the time.
