I remember when I was a child going to the Big Fresno Fair (was it called that, even waaaay back then?) with my mom and siblings. Once when I was about 7-years-old my mom had an artist at the fair make a silhouette of each of us kids. You know, black paper cut out in the shape of a profile and glued down to a white background. I didn't think that the silhouette looked like me at all. Anyway, silhouettes have come a long way since those days. I have seen silhouettes trending up over the past couple of years, so this is no news flash. Urban Outfitters has wall decal silhouettes in all kinds of styles. I like the black chandelier, myself. has some fabulous silhouette imagery on their new line of bike helmets. But a particular artist caught my eye last week when I was in my bi-weekly trend group. In fact, it was my friend, Ceramic Diva , who turned in a report on rehabilitated dishware that made me get all excited about silhouettes again. Brooklyn-based designer Sarah Cihat gives a second life to garage sale and thrift store ceramics by reglazing them and making them into artful dishes you want to hang on your funkiest wall. I know I do . . .
