the blue locket quiz: heather frazier of frazier & wing

Frazier & Wing's mobiles far surpass standard nursery baubles. They're exquisite works of art. Heather Frazier, their Portland-based designer, took the Blue Locket quiz this week. Her favorite artwork and artists are interesting and surprising; the dark intrigue of some of her influences makes her sweet designs all the more remarkable. Plus it's hard to argue with anyone who cites Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus." (Check out her beautifully photographed and styled shop and blog as well.) Heather, thank you so much! 

1. What inspires you? Color, gems, flowers, jewelry, fashion, art, small details and sunshine.

2. Who are your favorite artists? Masao Yamamoto, Egon Schiele, Kiki Smith, Yoshitomo Nara, Hayley Barker.

3. Can you name some favorite works of art? 
Chris Bucklow, Guests 

The Birth of Venus, Sandro Botticelli
Masao Yamamoto

Xavier Veilhan

Yoshitomo Nara

4. Where do you do your best work? Place does not matter. It all comes from within and from inspiration found in the world around me—so that can happen anywhere. The actually physical work of making happens in my studio. 

5. What scares you? Public speaking and the thought of having to get a job.
