Woven Magazine Issue 3 is out now. Woven Issue Three examines the unique capacity of the artist and designer to reflect the times in which we live, to express values and beliefs, and make small nudges towards a more inclusive and thoughtful world. Whether through a photograph, a canvas, or a finely tooled leather boot, art and design wield the power to challenge accepted norms, put life in perspective, connect communities, or dive into a deeper view of time. From a multitude of approaches and tools, we look at the way artists, entrepreneurs, and craftsmen and women leave their mark with a lasting impression.
From Brooklyn, New York to Costa Mesa, California; from Marfa, Texas to Chicago, Illinois, we share the impressions eight artists and craftsmen are leaving with their work, including photographers Bee & Rog Walker, painter and illustrator Kyle Steed, textile designers Jenna Wilson and Cary Vaughan of Ace & Jig, and sculptural fiber artist Doug Johnston.
Woven Magazine is a magazine for Makers and Thinkers. The stories of our lives weave in and out like fabric through a quilt. Together they spin themes common to all of humanity. Themes of fear and triumph, love and risk, joy and heartache. Together they comprise the human experience. Before the written word existed, there was oral tradition. Central to this tradition was a deep rooted conviction that story structured society; it explained origin, defined ethics, and created entertainment. Woven Magazine blooms out of this tradition. It seeks to capture the stories of makers, artists, and thinkers. It is founded upon the idea that what we often lack in ourselves, we find in others, and through their own sharing of their lives. May these stories serve to inspire and articulate the unspoken desires of your hearts.
