Becki Chan creates handmade jewellery and art objects from her studio in Vancouver, British Columbia. Given Becki’s educational background in sculpture and architecture, she finds beauty and inspiration in structure and geometry. Each piece is developed out of Becki’s sculptural work and is defined by a stripped-down vocabulary of form. Cast in silver, elementary lines and simplified shapes combine and repeat, with slight variations and irregularities.
Kathleen Tennock works primarily in clay, using primitive methods of firing like sawdust and Naked Raku. Without using glaze, she can maintain the tactile quality of the clay, something that is very important to her, because she wants her work to invite touch as much as it is visually pleasing. The raw texture of the clay and spontaneous markings created by the smoke firing during the Naked Raku process give her work a natural and almost stone-like quality.
KONZUK aspires to create jewelry that is more wearable architecture than simple accessory. The collections are inspired by designer Karen Konzuk’s personal observations of architecture and sculpture; notably the work of Donald Judd and Richard Serra. Minimal form, unique surface texture, and unorthodox materials each define the modernist aesthetic of KONZUK jewelry.

WA MOGA 29 is an online boutique offering a curated selection of modern Japanese artisanal goods. In creating WA MOGA 29, founder Reiko Katayama was inspired by the MOGA, or “modern girls,” of 1920s Japan.
Born and raised in Japan, Reiko is rooted in “WA” (Japanese style), but she has spent half her life in the West working in the design industry. Taking her cue from the mogas, she founded WA MOGA 29 as a bridge between East and West. She aims to dispel stereotypes that reduce Japan’s culture to kimono, sushi, and Hello Kitty by introducing a superior selection of goods handmade by gifted Japanese artisans.
