Summer vacation

Posted by Jorgelina Lopez on

I always wanted to start a journal to share ideas, art & design topic, our work, the ins and outs of our design studio and our philosophy and alway seemed such a difficult task since I'm not good at writing, but I thought to give it a try and start this journey.
The idea took shape on our last summer vacation of August 2019 in Assateague Island and what a better way to start this journal than sharing such a beautiful place and experience.

Assateague Island is a place we try to go every year. However, due to weather conditions we couldn't make it last year and we were looking forward to spend this summer's short vacation, camping and kayaking in this beautiful place. Connecting with nature is always a boost in our creative process and we needed this time to relax, recharge and enjoy the beach and the ocean. We always have such a good time and this year it wasn't the exception.

We spend time in the beach, taking long walk and playing pelota paleta, swimming or just laying in the sand staring  at the ocean. And one of the activities we never miss and become a tradition is heading to the bayside with our kayaks and pick mussels to cook them in the fire pit the next day for dinner. We couldn't be more grateful of what this place offers.

I always enjoy, observing the natural form, textures and the beautiful colors… I can spend hours picking up just whatever catches my attention. Naturally formed patterns have always intrigued and amazed me. The way this beautiful and inspiring form is created through the interaction of two or multiple forces, energies or media are just a natural pieces of art.

Patterns that are in constant process and movement created by the interaction of pressure, grow, fluidity, wind, water, sand...
I only take home a few pieces that have a detail, a pattern, or something that I can add to my little collection of natural objects and treasures.

Coming to Assateague Island has become one of our summer pleasures. We keep coming back every year spending a few days camping in the beach and and I can assure you, we will back next year!
